Snowshoe Mountain will have capacity limits in place this season as part of COVID protocols. Advanced ticket sales is highly recommended. The resort will also follow state and local guidance. This is subject to change.
What’s New This Season
The mountain operation crews have been busy behind the scenes this season replacing pipes used for snowmaking.
“It’s not the sexiest of capital improvements – the digging up of old snowmaking pipes and putting new ones in,” Snowshoe Mountain Director of PR Shawn Cassell said. “It’s so important because you have all the new guns in the world, but if the pipes underground getting the water and air to them are old, the guns are only going to do so much. I think that is going to make a noticeable difference.”
Snowshoe replaced pipes in both on parts of the mountain.
The mountain operation crews have also found some cool ways to recycle the old pipes in using them in terrain park features.
In addition, Snowshoe has added a brand new snowcat to its arsenal.
Also returning for this season will be a number of events along with some food and beverage changes and the relocation of the family fun center to the Bear’s Den at Silver Creek while the Big Top is transitioned into a rental location.
