I have been riding snowshoe mtn for quite a many years. For the last 6 years I have gotten a season pass. This year after much thought I said no way to snowshoe. They have over priced tickets $75 dollars, they don't offer any fair package deals other than to the rich. True they have to make their money for making the snow, but everyone on this coast makes snow but only snowshoe charges these outrageous prices for their snow making when they only have 53% of the mtn open. They try to take your tickets for riding under the lifts when there is snow on the ground. I have had more experience at this mtn. than anywhere else. I have also lived out west and snowshoe is so far behind with the pricing of tickets and lodging. This isn't Jackson Hole Wyoming so why the $75 dollar charge. Snowshoe isn't even the best in the mid- Atlantic. Just 49 miles north is Canaan Valley. They offer better terrain not as much but much better. Their tickets are a more reasonable price, less people attend so you don't have to fight crowds of non riders. The lifts are supposed to be high speed, well turn them up. Everything is situated on the top of the mtn when it should be at the bottom. If all the condos and hotels were at the bottom there would not be a sewage issue, and more snow would stick around. Imagine if the top of snowshoe was clear, how much more good terrain there would be to ride with no where near as much melt off. Snowshoe claims to be the best but by my own personal experience and I am a dedicated rider GO GET YOUR MONIES WORTH ELSEWHERE. Don't believe the snow report lies thats just a ploy to get people to the mtn. I remember calling plenty of times for a snow report and finding out that it was a big lie when I arrived. During the past seasons I was riding Snowshoe every week three times a week I have seen the best days that mtn has to offer, I have also seen the worst and for the most part this is what you get. Recommended resorts are Seven Springs Penn, Canaan Valley WVA, Boone Nc, Whisp, Hidden Valley. When it comes to snowshoe don;t believe the hype
