2021 Best Summer Events in West Virginia at Snowshoe Mountain

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Summer is officially in session and we are stoked! After having to cancel nearly all summer events last year due to COVID-19, we’re ready to get back into the swing of things. While we recognize the threat of COVID-19 is still very much present, we’re committed to taking the extra steps and precautions to safely and successfully operate and host events once again. This summer we have a diverse lineup of festivals, family fun events, mountain bike races, retreats, and more. You’ll notice a mix of classic Snowshoe summer events and new events, which we’re really excited about.
