Snowshoe is uniquely located in a part of rural West Virginia that feels secluded and convenient all at the same time.
We recommend some pre-planning and less relying on GPS and cell phones.
What's the best way to get to Snowshoe? That depends on where you're coming from, who you ask, and your road-trippin' style. There are several possible routes from every direction, so you can choose between scenic back roads, midway historic points of interest, or just getting here and getting on with the fun. The main thing to remember is that our rugged location can make GPS and smartphone maps less reliable than you might be accustomed to and cell service is limited, so you'll want to do some pre-road-trip planning and trust those turn-by-turn instructions. Here are a some of the routes we prefer to travel (but we still think you should embrace your inner old-schooler and grab a paper map or road atlas).
If you must use a GPS, we suggest inputting longitude and latitude coordinates, rather than using a street address and always cross referencing your GPS instructions with an accurate map. Please refer back as 4848 approaches for Check-In GPS coordinates.
Additionally, please be aware there is limited cell phone service in many areas surrounding the resort.
AT&T has the most reliable service. Wifi is available throughout the Village area and resort rooms.
