AnnouncementsFeatured

SNOWSHOE, W. Va – (November 25, 2021) – Snowshoe Mountain, the region’s largest ski area, kicked off the 2021/22 winter season on Thursday morning in Pocahontas County. Several hundred skiers and snowboarders were on hand for the first laps of the season.

“It feels good to start the season off on the right foot” said Snowshoe spokesperson Shawn Cassell.

“We always aim to get open by Thanksgiving, but it all depends on the weather. This year we’re starting strong with about 30 acres of terrain here in the early going, and the forecast is looking good for us to be able to expand terrain quickly as we head into December.”

Snowshoe’s high elevation and state-of-the-art snowmaking system allow the resort to consistently
be among the first ski areas to open in the region each year.

“It’s Thanksgiving and we’re thankful for our snowmaking team.” continued Cassell. “We’re making
more snow than ever before thanks to the hard work of our crew, as well as the millions of dollars
we’ve invested into our snowmaking technology and infrastructure in recent years. To put it into
perspective – in ideal conditions, we could cover a football field in about 27 feet of snow in just 12 hours.”
