Since 1980, The Ski Barn has been a consistent fixture at the base of Snowshoe Mountain. They ere the first third party ski rental shop in the area and have continued to provide high quality ski and snowboard rentals to thousands of visitors each year.
The Ski Barn has grown from that first shop at Snowshoe to now include a Ski Barn location at all ski resorts in West Virginia (Winterplace, Canaan Valley, Timberline & Snowshoe) and at the Wintergreen Resort in Virginia. In 2004, a sister-shop called SnowCreek Mountain Sports was built on top of Snowshoe Mountain at the entrance to Silver Creek ski area.
