Snowshoe Mountain vacation rentals

The last resort: finding adventure atop a mountain

Book a Snowshoe Mountain vacation rental and imagine the blast of cold air on your face as you go flying down the slopes - now you know what to expect during your time here! Snowshoe Mountain is a popular ski resort in rural eastern West Virginia. Tucked away in the Allegheny Mountains, the resort and the village of Snowshoe are located on the summit of Cheat Mountain. But what if you're not a fan of cold weather? The resort also provides a host of year-round activities which you can enjoy even when the midday summer sun shines overhead.

Skis to swimsuits _ oh, the options you'll have!

Snowshoe Mountain is outfitted with 244 acres of skiable terrain, tubing hills, and terrain parks for snowboarders. You know what that means _ it's time to hit the slopes! Even after the sun sets, you can get your adrenalin fix as the resort offers night skiing. Once the snow starts to melt and summer is just around the corner, make use of the resort's golf course, off-road vehicle tracks, and extensive mountain biking and horseback riding trails. There's even a lake for swimming and boating. Summer months also feature off-road races and live concerts.

Shuffle into town and meet the village people

Book a Snowshoe Mountain vacation rental near the village and walk to all the shops, restaurants, and pubs in town. After a day on the slopes what better way to work out all those knots than with a day at the spa and a deep tissue massage? Snuggle up with your fellow snow bunny as you warm yourself by the open firepits scattered throughout the village or settle in for a night of singing and dancing at a live music venue in town. If you're looking for your next rush, a zipline course hangs high above the heart of the village.

Snowy and sunny seasons on Snowshoe Mountain

Set at a high altitude, Snowshoe Mountain has its own microclimate and is considerably cooler than its surroundings further down base. The resort averages more than 13 feet of snow each year, with most falling between November and April, the same period during which the slopes are open. Pack plenty of warm clothing for your Snowshoe Mountain vacation rental getaway as winter highs typically only hover around freezing. While the sun may shine brightly during the summer, mild daytime highs rarely exceed 70 degrees. Cool springs and falls feature temps in the 40s with lots of rain.

Climb every mountain, explore its lakes and forests

You may feel like you can reach the heavens at Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort and, perched atop Cheat Mountain, it's easy to see why. Rugged peaks, including the 4,848-foot Thorny Flat, jut out of Cheat Mountain, creating dramatic and sprawling vistas. The only thing that smooths out the jagged landscape of the mountain is 200 or so acres of delicately maintained slopes. Waterways, including Shavers Lake and Cheat River, dot the mountainous terrain and red spruce forests of Cheat Mountain, giving visitors the chance to both frolic and cool off in the brisk waters.
