Snowshoe Mountain Announces the Addition of a New High Speed Quad!

Snowshoe Mountain Announces Plans for the 2006-2007 season!

Snowshoe is excited to announce a new high-speed detachable quad lift that will service the Widowmaker Slope System and adjoining trails for the 2006-2007 season! The lift’s location will be only steps away from the new Soaring Eagle Lodge, Snowshoe’s premier mountain address at the resort’s Top of the World area.  Soaring Eagle Lodge is going to be unmatched atop the mountain with ski in/ski out access, amazing views and Snowshoe’s most spacious homes. 

Installation of the lift will begin this summer making it operational for the 2006-2007 ski season.  The new lift will be constructed by Doppemayer CTEC and will reduce the lift ride from the bottom of Widowmaker slope from 8-10 minutes to less than three minutes traveling at 450 feet per minute!

The uphill capacity of the lift will be over 2,400 skiers per hour compared to 1,500 skiers per hour with the current fixed grip, Widowmaker Lift.

Soaring Eagle Lodge’s guests and owners will be able to take advantage of the new lift and its related trails right outside their doorstep.  Of course the new lift is all the talk on the mountain so for more information about Soaring Eagle Lodge and the new lift, contact Snowshoe’s Discovery Center at: 888-489-1943. 

With the announcement of the new lift and one of the best seasons in recent memory everyone is pumped for some skiing and riding at Snowshoe Mountain this week.  College Winter Break Week is finally over and was a huge success.

Snowshoe will play host to the region’s premier snowboard and free ski competition later this month.  The Scion West Virginia Open will take place January 27th through the 29th and will feature the region’s top skiers and riders.  Check out for more details and don’t forget to bring your camera!  Also, if you want to witness the landmark competition you had better make your reservation today.  With many of the East Coast’s top riders and teams coming to the mountain, rooms are going fast!
