    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Large, well-managed, reasonably priced, east coast ski resort.
    Cons: Not many cons other than really out in the middle of (beautiful) nowhere.

    Summary: Snowshoe is a very nice ski resort with everything that you need.  It is not Jackson Hole or Lake Tahoe but it also is not a 2 or 3 thousand mile plane ride away for those of us on the east coast.  There is plenty of lodging, both private and ... read more

    Pros: Close proximity to Richmond, best snow and trails in the region.

    Cons: You'll have so much fun, you may forget to stop and eat.
