Compete in the Collegiate Challenge, January 6-8
The latest in snow gear was available to test at Demo Days at Snowshoe Mountain Resort. Reps from 20 major manufacturers were on site enjoying the fabulous weather Saturday, and the blustery snows storm on Sunday. The event kicks off an amazing season start for Snowshoe, with over 45 inches of natural snowfall already and cold temperatures holding, conditions are primo for east coast.

What's new? Kids have More to Do!
The main attraction was the grand opening of the resort's new family fun center, The Big Top. This 15,000-square foot structure offers arcades, climbing walls, and more. Kids can bounce, climb, you name it, after hitting the slopes and the teens can dance in the evening. It's also a great place to take the little ones who aren't ready for the slopes because it's all inside and safe from the elements, complete with a snack bar. Find out more by calling (304) 572-TOPP.

Snowshoe is offering more than ever, with it's Youth Ski Free Days which coincide with a Battle of the Bands Competition. All West Virginia residents 18 and younger can ski free on these set Sundays; January 29, February 26, and March 12. Parents and/or friends of these younger residents are eligible for a special $25 companion ticket on those same dates. Now you have no excuse not to get on the slopes!
