With winter fast approaching, let’s take a look back in the rear-view at the incredible summer at Snowshoe Mountain, via the lens of our resident photo extraordinaire, Kurt Schachner.
It takes a while for spring to really get in gear on the mountain, but once it does…Winters are harsh around here (in the best way possible), so it’s always a joy to see everything come back to life.
The early part of summer is a treasure trove of wildlife encounters. The cutest of which has to be the annual appearance of newborn white-tailed deer. We can practically hear you saying “dawwww” out loud right now.
It was a fantastic season down at The Raven, our Gary Player-designed golf course that is just as picturesque as it is challenging. The fairways and greens were in the best condition we’ve seen in several years.
The Snowshoe Bike Park also had an excellent summer at Snowshoe Mountain. Our trail crew takes a lot of pride in the work they do, and that’s always obvious to those who ride here. It’s hard work for sure, but like the true artists they are, there’s no better feeling than seeing others enjoy their finished product.
Speaking of the trail crew, here they are posing for a celebratory photo after putting the finishing touches on our newest trail, “Whistle Pig.” It’s a fun, flowy trail accessible via Easy Street and is perfect for beginners.
Check out this bird’s-eye view of one of our favorite events of the summer – Treasure on the Mountain! This annual raffle fundraising event directly supports the Snowshoe Foundation in its efforts to enhance the quality of life in our community.
This list of summer activities you can do here at Snowshoe is long, but we would put paddling around Shaver’s Lake near the top. Canoes, kayaks, paddleboards – whatever your preferred method of padding is, we’ve got it.
We took Labor Day weekend up a notch this year with the return of the 4848 Festival! Plenty of good music, good friends, and good times to go around.
We were honored to serve as the lone American venue on the Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup circuit. The downhill racing ended in an incredibly dramatic fashion, just like in 2019. On the XC side of things, you couldn’t have scripted it any better. Colorado’s Christopher Blevins became the first American man to win an XC World Cup race since 1994. And he did it right here on home soil.
With an extended stretch of dry weather in July and August, we were skeptical about just how pretty the fall foliage might be this year. Turns out we had no reason for concern – it was stunning as usual.
