SNOWSHOE, W.Va. — Beginning May 19, Snowshoe Mountain Resort in Pocahontas County will open for summer operations. In preparation, Snowshoe has unveiled its schedule for the summer season.
While the Raven Golf Club is already open, a number of other activities will be open over the coming months. These summer events will include: Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, 4848 Music Festival, GNCC Racing, Yoga Power Retreat, and more.
“With a name like Snowshoe, winter is usually the first thing that comes to mind when people think of the mountains. Summer is our best kept secret, but the secret is to get outside. said Patti Duncan, president and chief operating officer of Snowshoe. “Events like the Mountain Bike World Cup and Festival 4848 bring new visitors to our region from around the world. We’re excited to roll out the red carpet and show them what almost heaven is like.
Other mountain and lake activities will also open, such as hiking, scenic chairlift rides, off-road tours, e-bike tours, swimming, paddling, and more.
