Winter Sports in WVa. - Ski Snowshoe
The following response is from friend in the know. hjh Hope this helps with your plans to
Hey, There are a few places to ski in WV but the best is by far snowshoe. It has tons of trails, different activities (snowmobiles, snoeshoeing, tubing, snowboard park, ect.) and lots of restaurants and clubs. The village on top of the mountain is similar in style to vail, CO and has everything you need including a huge arcade/adventure building for kids. Snow has just begun to fall and it should have 6" by the end of the day. Opening day for ski season is Nov.26. You can contact snowshoe at their website, www.snowshoemtn.com or call them at 877-441-4FUN. Its a great area in the fall and summer also if you like to fly fish, mountain bike, or golf. Winterplace is a good place to go if you want to catch a good day or two of skiing and is closer to Charleston, but it isn't a true resort like snowshoe is.Hope this helps, Gordon Lane
