SNOWSHOE, West Virginia — Last season Snowshoe announced plans for its first trail addition in 10 years–two new trails in the South Mountain area, adjacent to the existing Widowmaker slope. Once trail construction began this summer, it was announced that an additional gladed area would be added to the new section.

With winter just months away, Snowshoe is pleased to introduce its new trail map, featuring these exciting additions. All three new slopes have been marked for expert skiers and will be accessed by the year-old Soaring Eagle Express high-speed quad. The three trails contribute challenging and varied terrain to the South Mountain area, giving guests more room for the perfect turn. With a projected opening date for mid-November, Snowshoe will debut 10 new skiable acres, bringing its total to 244, and will increase the trail count to 60 slopes across the mountain??в„ўs three areas.

This season is an exciting one in Snowshoe??в„ўs 34-year history. The mountain experienced its best year ever in 2006-2007, and is ready for another wild and wonderful season on the slopes. Along with the new trails being added, guests will also benefit from the new magic carpet surface lift being constructed in the teaching area alongside Skidder slope, just outside the mountaintop Village. The magic carpet will be a tremendous tool for Snowshoe??в„ўs Ski School, and will greatly improve beginners??в„ў experience on the mountain. The lift construction has also allowed the instructional area to be expertly regraded, further improving the learning experience for first-time skiers and riders.
