Skiing and Snow Boarding

Snowshoe Mountain has arguably some of the best skiing east of the Rockies. With 234 skiable acres, 60 runs, and 14 chair lifts, it's easy to see why. Unlike most ski resorts, Snowshoe Mountain's resort, village, and the Black Bear Crossing House are at the top of the mountain. This unique construction means there is no waiting in lines to get your first ski of the day. Family Fishing on LakeYou can start skiing from the house's back door and then catch the Powerderidge chair lift once you reach the bottom, and it will bring you directly back to the complex where the house is located. Alternatively, you can take any chair lift to the summit then ride the free shuttle to the Black Bear Crossing complex.

More information about the skiing and snow boarding can be found at Snowshoe Mountain's website: www.showshoemtn.com

Mountain Biking

Snowshoe keeps some of their lifts open year round, which means you can experience the exhilarating of mountain biking down the slopes and trails without having to worry about peddling back up hill. Once to the bottom of the trail, just find a lift and in minutes you can be back on top to take another trail.Kids Playing Shuffleboard at the Lake
