Snowshoe is the highest-elevation ski-slope east of the Mississippi, and the very best skiing south of Vermont. With a yearly average of 15 feet of snow, a fifteen-hundred foot vertical drop, and 1.5-mile long trails, it provides challenges for the extreme skier while accommodating the novice. Night skiing is available. The village is on top of the mountain, delivering breathtaking views to the skier and non-skier alike. Mountain Lodge offers views of the slopes, valley, and lake, and is just footsteps away from the village center with its night life, shopping, and Split Rocks swimming pool and sauna. Auntie Pasta's restaurant, a staple for many years on the mountain, with a pub is located on the lower level. Snowshoe’s fastest lift is just fifty feet from the door. Parking is included and is located directly outside. Check-in is at the front desk of Mountain Lodge – no waiting in long lines. The hotel-like lobby features comfortable couches, wingback chairs, a roaring fire, and high speed wireless internet. Around the corner is a game room for the kids.

SUMMER & FALL
The livin’ is easy at Snowshoe. With high temperatures in the 80’s and low humidity, Mountain Lodge is naturally cooled and does not have A/C.

Other nearby activities include hiking, camping, white water rafting and canoeing. The Cass Scenic Railroad runs sightseeing and dinner excursions on an historic steam-engined train, and the National Radio Observatory runs tours on most days.

Michael & Kathleen, Fairfax, VA
The first time we visited Snowshoe, we decided we had to buy a place. Since Kathleen no longer skis, it had to be a comfortable place with a good view. It came down to a townhouse at Powder Ridge or this condo in Mountain Lodge. Since Mountain Lodge is in the village and offers concierge services, the choice became simple. When the real estate agent first showed us the property, he opened the curtains to show the view and said 'You're really sittin' in the catbird seat up here'. The name stuck.
No matter what time of year we come up to The Catbird Seat, the view is magnificent and the beauty is humbling. Snowshoe Mountain Company does a great job of holding events most weekends in off-season so there is always something to do.
