Snowshoe adds features, offers room deal
Snowshoe Mountain Resort is preparing for the winter ski season with some new features, a "snow guarantee," and a "buy four nights, get four nights free" lodging deal.
New features include elements that have been added to the snowboarding terrain in the Silver Creek Area; a seven-acre wooded area devoted to glade skiing; and a small zipline above the walking village.
The resort has bolstered its snowmaking capabilities by adding or upgrading more than 5,000 feet of snowmaking pipe.
The snow guarantee: "If Snowshoe Mountain cannot offer the most skiable terrain open compared to all other mountains in the region then your next day of skiing is free." The region includes 15 ski areas in West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina.
The "buy four nights, get four nights free" deal can be used for a single long getaway or spread out over a couple of trips. The offer is scheduled to end Oct. 31 but is subject to availability and could end sooner. Snowshoe is scheduled to open for the winter ski and snowboard season on Dec. 8. It will open earlier if conditions permit.
