We’re less than a week away from the start of summer operations at Snowshoe Mountain in Pocahontas County. The Resort will be open 7 days a week for summer operations beginning on Thursday, May 19. The Raven Golf Club at Snowshoe is already open daily for the season. Snowshoe has also unveiled another action-packed lineup of summer events including the Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, 4848 Music Festival, GNCC Racing, Yoga Power Retreat, and much more.

“With a name like Snowshoe, winter is usually the first thing that comes to mind when folks think about the mountain. Summer is our best-kept secret but the secret is getting out.” said Patti Duncan, Snowshoe President & COO. “Events like the Mountain Bike World Cup and the 4848 Festival are bringing new visitors to our region from all over the world. We’re excited to roll out the red carpet and show them what Almost Heaven is all about.”

In addition to the increasingly popular Snowshoe Bike Park and the Raven Golf Club, Snowshoe Mountain offers a wide variety of mountain and lake activities including hiking, scenic chairlift rides, off-road tours, e-bike tours, swimming, paddling, and much more.

Pickin’ & Pedalin | June 17-19
This exciting new event is a fresh spin on Snowshoe’s classic Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival. They’re trading in the Blues for some fresh Bluegrass with a lineup featuring Railroad Earth, Mountain Heart, Strung Like A Horse, Stringus Khan, Shelf Life String Band, and more. Friday night will include a bourbon tasting alongside the live music. On Saturday there will be a mountaintop brewfest with over 40 varieties of beer for sampling, as well as plenty of delicious BBQ.

The weekend will also feature mountain bike racing on Sunday – a “Dirt Bug Dash” for the kids on Easy Street, and an intermediate-friendly downhill race for the adults over on the Western Territory.

4848 Festival | July 7-10
Back by popular demand, the 4848 Festival offers a “Festivacation” experience where you get everything a music festival has to offer plus a mountain resort vacation! Enjoy a full weekend of genre-busting live music, crowd performers, craft beer, delicious food, and much more.

This year’s lineup includes Greensky Bluegrass, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Wood Brothers, Leftover Salmon, Dumpstaphunk, and many more.

Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup | July 29-31
The eyes of the mountain biking world will once again turn to Pocahontas County this July, as Snowshoe Mountain plays host to another round of Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup downhill, cross country, and short track racing. This will mark Snowshoe’s 3rd appearance on the World Cup circuit. The event will be broadcast live on Red Bull TV.
