Snowshoe, WV?

Ok, well I am from north carolina and have never been out of the slopes here since this is my first season. School lets out for spring break next week and as an attempt to get me to come home to the family, my dad offered to take me on a trip to snowshoe for three days (sunday - monday). I have heard of it, but not much about it. I alwasy assumed because of that, that it was just a small slope in nc or virgina somewhere. After looking at the trail map I realized I was completly wrong. So just wondering, anybody been there, and what do you think about it? How are the trails for freeriding? How are the terrain parks?

It's a really fun place lots of Vertical for that area of the country. The parks were OK, not great but not bad at all. It's a reverse mtn., meaning the last run of the day is on a lift instead of a trail. You'll have fun for sure. They get some good storms there to, cross your fingers maybe you'll get one.
How far is it from you?

its four hours away from my home town where i will be driving from. I am not sure what you meant about a reverse mountain. i do know that for night sessions, you have to go to a whole another slope which isn't open during the day, which I kinda of thought stunk at first, then i realized that, that means I won't have to wait for them to groom the slopes (aka, the lift ticket will say 9am - 9pm, which really means it) and I will have a whole new place to explore halfway through the day. just the only bad thing is, is that the night slope area seemed a lot smaller than the other slope area, meaning it might be a lot more crowded at night.

as far as snow storms, i wish, but according to the weather, monday it will be a high of 50 with 30% chance of rain and tuesday it will be a high of 44 with 60% chance of rainrain (those will be the two days will will actually be on the slopes) the rain will suck, but i will be so physcied to go ride, i wont even care.

By reverse I mean the lodges, hotels, restaurants, etc are all at the top of the hill. You can see this on the trail map. We didn't ride at night when we were there, can't help you with that.

Snowshoe has 2 different parts to the resort. Snowshoe itself and Silver Creek. Snowshoe is MUCH larger but doesnt offer night boarding. Silver Creek is a little smaller but the entire thing is open for the night, it is also open during the day. They are part of the same resort so your lift ticket works for both and are not far apart at all, about a 5 minute ride on the complementary shuttle that Snowshoe offers. I love Snowshoe and try to make it out there as much as I can. Its a real great time and I'm sure you'll love it. Make sure you hit Shays Revenge and Cupp Run while you are there. They are really fun runs. Even in crappy conditions Snowshoe is pretty fun, hope you luck out though and the weather gets better.
