I just got back from skiing at Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia and it was awesome!
We drove out on Friday night, winding back and forth and up and down on small roads through dense fog. Our hotel was family-owned and adorable – check-in was a note with my name on it on the door, telling us our room number and that we should stop by the office in the morning. We chose this place because our friend recommended it and because it had breakfast in the morning. SUCH a good breakfast! Eggs and French toast pre-skiing? Yes please. It was also, according to one of SudanJenn's chairlift friends, the best restaurant in the area. I believe it – dinner on Saturday was delicious!
We were skiing at Snowshoe, the biggest resort in near(ish) DC. It is completely disconcerting because the lodge, hotels, etc. are at the top of the mountain, then you ski down…it’s as if you just told me that south was north and north was south – I cannot wrap my brain around the concept. Pretty early on Day 1 we discovered the "Western Territory" that had two long and excellent runs. You had to walk across a street to get to it (weird), but done and done, we alternated those for the rest of the day.

not a lot of snow.
We further amused ourselves with making a little ski movie. I’m going to edit it and post here…get excited!
It was a great weekend and I’m so glad we went! If these temperatures continue, that may have been our last chance at skiing locally this year…think SNOW!!!
