Snowshoe 40th Anniversary Celebration

Snowshoe 40th Anniversary Celebration

It’s our 40th winter season and we’re planning a blowout birthday party weekend in December to kick it all off. Festivities include discounts on skiing and riding, dance and hot tub parties, on-snow games, costume contests and a live concert by the quintessential funk/soul artists of the 1970s and 1980s, The Commodores. 

December 19th is our official Birthday—time to go with retro 70’s lift ticket pricing! Ski or ride for just $14 for a full day lift ticket on that day. These throwback lift ticket prices are only available online at

On Friday night, electronic dance musician Big Chocolate, a favorite among college kids, will perform live in The Connection Nightclub. This is an all-ages event, with tickets for just $10. 

Multi-platinum legends, The Commodores, will perform live inside The Big Top on Saturday, December 21 at 9pm. Renowned for the R&B hits "Just to Be Close to You," "Easy," and "Brickhouse," to name but a few, Commodores were one of the top bands during their long tenure at Motown. The group is credited with seven number one songs and a host of other Top Ten hits on the Billboard charts, and their vast catalog includes more than 50 albums. Tickets for this all-ages event are $40 walk-up and $30 if purchased in advance. Tickets are limited and advanced purchases are strongly recommended.
