Winter Can Never Come Soon Enough
Our friends at Snowshoe are getting pretty excited about the imminent arrival of the first snow. After all, in a year ripe with unforeseen twists and turns, this just might be the best news we’ve heard so far: winter will come. Snow will come. First chairs will come. Last calls will come. Unbridled, uncontained, kick-your-heels-in-the-air fun will come. And Snowshoe’s family of instructors, patrollers, groomers, snow makers, cocktail mixers, lifties, chefs, and countless more, can’t wait to see you return to the mountain.
Great deals for a great season.
To kick off this new season properly, Snowshoe is right-away launching their biggest sale of the year: 20% off on pretty much everything. Lift tickets, lodging, rental packages, and Heli Skiing. Ok, we were kidding about the chopper. Heck yes! This offer expires on October 28, so make sure to put a reminder in your calendar. More details can be found here.
Opening Day is NOT a virtual event.
Snowshoe is officially dropping their first rope and rolling out the white carpet with lots of fun festivities and their notorious shenanigans on November 25 (weather permitting).Ps: Don’t forget to wear your favorite costume.
There will be snow, and lots of it. Guaranteed.
According to official sources, this winter will be dominated by La Niña. In other words, above-normal snowfall is expected for West Virginia’s Appalachian Mountains. Yes, that means more pow for everyone, including you. And should Mother Nature go on strike for a week or two, Snowshoe’s recently upgraded array of high-tech snow guns will make good on their unique Snow Guarantee. More details can be found here.
A safe and responsible winter season.
Snowshoe has been working hard to put policies in place to make sure this season will be both fun AND safe for everyone. Following state, federal, and industry guidelines, Snowshoe’s COVID-19 plan involves daily employee health screenings, physical distancing protocols, and increased sanitation and disinfecting efforts. More details can be found here.
All the best of winter, and all in-person.
If you’ve never been to Snowshoe’s mountaintop village, you owe it to yourself to plan a trip this winter – it’s the perfect antidote to all the virtual everythings we’ve been shifting to. And if you have, you’ll remember the cobblestone street village, the night skiing, the shopping, restaurants, and, of course, the Spa. Schussbombing down the mountain not your style? Well, we’re big fans of their winter adventure tours that allow you to tour the mountain and surrounding areas by RzR (snow-ready off-road buggies) horse-drawn sleigh and snowmobiles – to each their own speed.
