Opening Day At Snowshoe: Our Favorite Should-Be-National-Holiday

There are three things certain in life: taxes, death and Snowshoe’s epic Opening Day Weekend. After patiently waiting for 324 days this year, Opening Day is finally within reach. Scheduled for Wednesday, November 21, the “island in the sky” will open the season with a loud bang, showcasing its army of brand- spanking-new snow guns, and pulling out all the stops in the après department to celebrate the return of the season of seasons. And since Opening Day weekend coincides with this year’s celebration of all-things-turkey, we made sure to offer lots of activities and events to honor Thanksgiving.

And it doesn’t start and end with just one weekend. The people in power have decided to make this winter season full of activities tailored to knuckleheads of all ages. Costumes, terrain park competitions, brew fests (keep an eye out for the locally crafted Shay’s Revenge Stout) and live acts like Clutch and CKY.

Still need a few more reasons to call in sick?
How about an off-road adventure to the backcountry escape room, or a soothing spa treatment?

Wax your boards and skis, put on your power song, and turn the phone to “Do Not Disturb.”

About Snowshoe Mountain:
This is Snowshoe – part pure adventure, part cushy comfort, 100% contagious happiness. Our three distinct areas all have personalities worth getting to know. With the perfect amount of vertical in all the right places. A slew of kickers, rails, and other flip-worthy features. Plenty of runs groomed with the same attention paid to top show dogs. And enough variety to keep things interesting from first chair to last.
