Snowshoe is a decent mountain but lift ticket prices are ridiculously high compared to everything else in the region.
Completely agree, but its b/c they are owned by the same group that owns Copper and Whistler (Intrawest). On the flipside though it is the best place in the mid-Atlantic to ride, and has one of the coolest villages on the east coast, definitely in the mid-Atlantic. Its like a mini-Copper mountain really, cool $$$ village, and somewhat segregated runs on the mountain. I like the western territory b/c there are only black runs over there and they have the high speed quad. 1500 vertical feet with no blues or greens around or running through them and serviced by a dedicated HS quad makes for a good day.
Western is pretty fun when the season hits high gear to open all the trails, otherwise it's jammed with everyone on one run. The village is pretty high-end/ritzy as far as resorts go, but again, comparably higher prices. But that's what pregaming is for, right?
