1535 Gordon Avenue
Snowshoe, WV is one of the best ski resorts in the east. The mountain offers 57 slopes in 4 different ‘territories.’ We will drive to Snowshoe on Friday night (about 3-4 hours), party there, wake up, ski/snowboard all day, and party again on Saturday night. We have 2 houses rented out that are 1 house away from each other, so we will have a house that is quiet at night and a house that is.. not so quiet. You can ski on Sunday or head back with someone that has a car, your choice (no lift ticket deal on Sunday). We’ll get back anywhere from 2 to late at night, depending on when your driver leaves.
Outdoor at UVA Provides:
A warm place to stay. The houses have multiple bedrooms, cable tv, heat, and possibly a fireplace. There’s only room in beds for so many people, so many will sleep in a sleeping bag (provided) on the floor or on a couch. A lottery will be done to see who gets the beds. The club will also provide Saturday breakfast and dinner, as well as Sunday breakfast. Finally, as long as 20 people sign up, we will be able to get a group discount on tickets. With the discount, the ticket prices will be $57 adult, $52 student for a full day of skiing. Half days are about half that.
You must bring:
WARM SKI CLOTHES! Skis if you have them. If you don’t, bring money to rent some. Bring a sleeping bag/pad if you have them, otherwise, the club will provide. You will need money to get lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and you should bring food for your Friday dinner. Also bring any beverages that you may want to consume since there are no stores within a few miles. Finally, bring your checkbook or cash to pay for tickets (credit card not accepted). If you are a student, BRING YOUR STUDENT ID since you can’t get the student discount without it.
