Why the Owner Chose Snowshoe: We picked this resort and this particular property for a number of reasons. We live close to D.C., so Snowshoe Resort is conveniently located--we can be there in less than 4hours. We were there in the winter of 2007, invited by a co-worker, for a long weekend. It was a typical West Virginia day--the sun was shining, the sky was blue, and the Mountains were covered and smothered in glorious white powder – and we thought: Wouldn't it be nice to have a place here. The rest is history!
