SNOWSHOE, WV (WOAY) – It has finally stopped snowing at Snowshoe Mountain in Pocahontas County, and resort officials have announced their modified schedule of activities and events for the summer and fall, including opening dates for the Snowshoe Bike Park and the Raven Golf Club. The Resort will operate Thursday-Sunday weekly starting July 2, with the Raven Golf Club opening two weeks earlier on June 18.

“Summer is such a special time in West Virginia, and especially here at Snowshoe,” said Patti Duncan, President & COO. “There’s no better place for an outdoor adventure with family. We’re excited to get the chairlifts spinning again and to welcome everyone back to the mountain, but at the same time we understand that it in order to keep everyone safe, it needs to be done the right way. That’s our top priority right now.”

Snowshoe officials are continuing to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and are adhering to health and safety guidelines established by the CDC, NSAA, and the State of West Virginia.
