Snowshoe has great hiking all around the basin 'bowl' and at the Silver Creek area... all are easy or moderate with the exception of 'Bail Out' which is rated difficult. Hikes can range from 1/2 milers to overnighters (primitive camping available on Cheat Mtn. Ridge trail near outback country hut area). My suggestion would be to start with a nice 3 hour hike starting at Black Run Road at Silvercreek to Lower Beaver dam, turn left back onto Black Run Road to Enchanted Forest on the right. Take that past Bears Den and thru Point of No Return to A Headset Adjustment. Take that down the mountain to Lower Spruce Road where you turn left on the road and walk out to the Silver Creek parking lot. Nice stream trail... to a moss forest... pretty hike.Stop in to the Depot or Patrol at Snowshoe for a hiking trail map. Beautiful long view scenery from multiple sites on hikes in the area.

This place is really nice. You can ski in the winter, and mountain bike the trails in the summer. Very cool area. You can take you bike to the top on certain ski lifts, and ride back down the hill. Very intense trails!

Great for beginners. Snowshoe is probably the best ski resort in the Southeast. I usually go to Silver Creek for night skiing. The trails are moderate in difficulty overall with all levels generally open. Snowshoe, the main resort is amazing. They have green, easy trails that are quite scenic and fun for beginners and some sick blacks. The Western Territory is reminiscent of Utah and Colorado in its difficulty. They are very strict on advanced skiers only on the West side for good reason.

A nice ski hill. I was surprised at the beauty and good snow conditions this far east. The lodge was nice too.

Snowshoe was my first ski trip and It's safe to say I'm hooked for life. All of the runs were open with 50 inches of snow on the ground. The lodgings were nice and located at the top of the mountain making access to the slopes nothing but a step out of the door. Being a nature lover at heart I enjoyed the begginer slopes which allow you to take in all the beauty that a West Virginia pine forest has to offer during a white winter.
