About Manning Outen

Born and raised in North Carolina, I love to fish, ski, canoe, and bike. The Carolina mountains are nice, but did not offer consistent skiing with short lift lines like Snowshoe. The extra three hour drive is worth it to me. I have two son's, Hunter and Stewart who learned to ski at Snowshoe in the late 80's. I fish the Carolina coast in the spring and fall and head to Snowshoe for some trout fishing in the summer and late fall. I study God's word every morning and read for fun as well. I see the sun rise and set almost everyday. I manage commercial property and dabble in real estate. Life is good. Ski hard.

Manning Outen purchased this condo in 1995

Why Manning Outen chose West Virginia

The skiing is the best on the East coast and the people are wonderful. Being here in the off season is so peaceful. And of course, the kid in me comes to life when the slopes are covered with snow in late November. This property has on site management and free parking wish is important to me.

What makes this condo unique

Getting to know some real West Virginia people with family values. They have pulled me from the snow, helped when my battery was dead and so much more. The Greenbriar resort is my favorite lunch stop on the way up in White Sulfur Springs. There is lots of Sam Snead stuff at the clubhouse where Sunday brunch is served. Catching small mouth and trout in the pristine streams. Sleeping late. Cooking a lot. And of course SKIING. Snowshoe runs a first class operation and the dining and nightlife is always 1st class. Enjoy!

Perfect Ski Trip Getaway

  • 5 of 5

After staying in the Snowcrest condos for years, we found 206A to be the nicest and best equipped yet. There was a minor hiccup to start, but the owner was very responsive and fixed a small problem quickly. You don't get that with a lot of owners. The place was clean and equipped with everything you need to get by during your say and then some. It's rare to have an owner supply ample trash bags, tp, dish detergent, and soap. The furnishings were nice and comfortable. The layout was roomy so space was not an issue. There is a beautiful sunrise view from the balcony and master bedroom. I highly recommend this unit and look forward to returning year after year. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

Just great!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this condo do not do it justice. Everything is current and up to date, it's a beautiful place. The building is located directly adjacent to the "Top of the World" area of the resort. Like...1 minute walk adjacent. If you've been to Snowshoe before, Top of the World is one of the main parking areas. There's a restaurant there, a couple ski rental shops, and several residential complexes. It's not the main village, but it's on the same mountain- so you can ski from the Top of the World, down the mountain along the "Flume" runs, and access the Village through one of the other ski lifts. Likewise, you can return to Top of the World from the Village set of lifts, by taking the "Hootenany" runs, to the Soaring Eagle Lift. We rented our skis right there, did our day of skiing and then dropped them right off after getting off the lift at the end of the day.

As for the lodging- we had 7 adults. It was cozy, but everyone fit just fine. We used all of the bedding: the King sized bed, the two twins, the pullout queen bed, and the twin air mattress. Everyone was comfortable. The place was clean, up to date, and a great value- you won't be disappointed. Manning was great to work with, and the whole process couldn't have been easier. Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Joe A, Thanks so much for your very informative review. It is nice to have the lift and ski rental shop so close by and be able to drive right up and unload at the high speed lift. I have also been know to visit the bar at the Soaring Eagle Lodge next door. They are famous for their famous cotton candy, it's free; a bit pricey on drinks and food but it is first class resturant. Also, the karaoke bar at the Top of the World can be a great place to hang out with friends. Thanks again for your business and for taking the time to inform others how to navigate the area. Blessing to You and Yours! Manning

Great stay over NYE--even with no snow!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several different condos at Snowshoe over the years, but I think this was our favorite! Well stocked kitchen, we loved the hot tubs, and very conveniently located just a short walk from the top of a lift. Very spacious, too. Despite the lifts not opening until the third day of our four day trip, we had a blast. Thanks, Manning. We will certainly come visit again and you'll be our first choice!

Midweek getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 day stay at Snowcrest was great. Starting with the weather, sunshine for day one, then fresh snow the next two days. It could not have been better. We brought all our food for all our meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. We snowboarded in the Western Territory and on the south mountain. The shuttle comes right to the condo complex for pickup and drop off. Keeping one vehicle at Top of the World enabled us to finish up our day on south mountain and not have to walk from there to the condo, or ride the entire loop on the shuttle. Thanks for the tip Manning.

The hot tubs were a life saver. We would use them when coming back for lunch and then again at the end of the day. Very few people were there midweek so we had the place to ourselves.

The condo fit 5 of us comfortably. It was very clean and stocked with all we needed. Having a wood fire each night while watching movies was great. Plenty of DVD movies to choose from.

Thanks to Manning for allowing us to stay in his condo and providing some great advice. We plan to come back again and this would be our #1 choice.

Owner's Response: Peter, Thank you for your business and for your review, you're too kind. I really enjoyed talking to you on the phone. I can answer questions and give better information over the phone. I'm glad you and your family had a good stay and enjoyed the movies, fireplace, hot tubs and found everything in order in the kitchen. It is a fun place, especially when you get to see some natural snow! Your comment about going during the week is right on the money. During the weekends I recommend going to Silver Creek. There is great skiing there is well. I hope you'll come back and visit again. God bless you and yours. Manning

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home last weekend from a week at Snowshoe. Manning's condo is great! The kitchen is great and obviously recently updated, with everything we needed and plenty of room to cook. There was plenty of room for our family of 5, especially compared to other 2 bedrooms we've been in. The location is good, with the bus coming by the front door, or the short walk down to the top of soaring eagle lift! The hot tubs were great after hard days of skiing!

Manning is great to work with and gave us a great rate. We booked two weeks with him, and will be returning again in March for our second week! The only reason I would hate to recommend because I would hate to not be able to book!! :) But I do recommend without hesitation!! He is great to work with, so I won't be surprised if he starts booking up early with repeat business!!

So if you're looking for a great 2 bedroom condo at Snowshoe with furnishings that belong in this decade, without getting taking to the cleaners, this one is tough to beat!

Owner's Response: Shawn, Thank you for your kind words and your two-week rental. It's always great to have folks that give me feedback so that I can make things better. I hope you will take me up on my offer for a free week in the summer. I think you would enjoy that as well. You can count on our rates staying the same for next year for you. Thanks again for your business and for this review. God bless. Manning
