Snowshoe Mar 14-19

I am looking at going to snowshoe for spring break because nothing else has comes up, and looks like they have plenty of snow. Thier site says 223 inches this season which is more than a lot of places out west. And the forecast for the next ten days looks nice and cold. So i was just wondering how it looks up there now and how much of the terrain do you guys think will be open during the time i would be there?

Can't say what it'll be like then but I just spent 4 days riding here (leave tomorrow). So much snow fell in those 4 days. I was thigh deep in powder on my first run Saturday. Half the mountain was closed Friday because of wind but aside from that - awesome. Still hard to believe how much snow came down.

FACK--- I'm going there 18-21, is this spring break time?

whiskaz, I heard the road up to the mountain was closed this weekend, is that true? Snowshoe has had a really outstanding season so far but it seems like I cannot time it right!

I'm heading up Thursday morning for a long weekend so let's hope all that sweet snow continues. With the current extended forecast and the base they have, I would say they will be 100% open when you go up.

I heard that the road was closed, but I dunno. I was on top of the mountain from Wednesday night until this morning. I heard a lot of "it usually takes us 3 hours to get here but it took us 5 this time" stories. Couldn't have asked for better conditions snow-wise. The wind created some problems Friday but was tolerable Saturday and Sunday. As far as the snow is concerned, I'm sure the West is used to it but I've never seen anything like it

Ive been on SB to Snowshoe with less snow than they have now and all the trails were open. We had a large group which made it cheap and we had a blast. This was almost 10 years ago....

My girlfriend and I are heading up to Snowshoe the 15th or 16th for a couple days, they have lodging with tickets starting at 138 per person which isnt bad at all.

Dark Series FTW!
