How To Spend a Rainy Day At Snowshoe

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Not everyday is a powder or a bluebird day, but every trip to Snowshoe is an opportunity to have fun. Here’s how we stay smiling when the sky is crying.

Shred Anyway

There are no bad days, only bad gear (and a bad attitude). Sometimes rainy days are the best days with short lift lines and soft, slushy snow. It’s great for progressing on your skis or board because it doesn’t hurt when you fall.

Ever wondered how our employees stay hyped no matter the weather? Dakine, Helly Hansen, and The North Face. Not what you brought? Check out 4848 and Full Tilt in the Village, or High Country Clothing in Silver Creek. The Snowshoe retail team has the best advice on gear because they’re out taking laps when not in the store, even on those rain days.

Split Rock Pools

Whether you hit the slopes or not, everyone loves to warm up and wind down at the end of a winter day. Split Rock offers an indoor and outdoor heated pool with a waterslide, hot tubs, and sauna perfect for rest and recovery, or to wear out the kids before bed. Check out Split Rock Pools located in the Village near Allegheny Springs. Split Rock Pools entrance is free for guest who booked their Lodging through Snowshoe Reservations.

The Bear’s Den

Where else can you throw axes, snowboard upside down, play cornhole, grab a bite to eat, and more? No where except The Bear’s Den. Located at Silver Creek, Bear’s Den is a great spot for the family to hang out and stay dry. One of our favorite things to do is ride Silver Creek for a bit then go into Bear’s Den for some rich hot chocolate.

Village Scoop

WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM! And milkshakes…and floats…and cupcakes…and cookies. The Village Scoop has something for every sweet tooth. Experience the child like joy of peering through the cooler glass to pick your favorite flavors and get that cone or cup you’ve been yearning for, whether you knew it or not. Hang inside for a while, then keep the childhood nostalgia going as you run out through the rain.

10 Prime

It’s prime time to treat yourself. Located in Soaring Eagle, 10 Prime has the atmosphere, food, and drinks that will have you saying, “Now this is a vacation.” For steak and sushi lovers alike, raise a glass and toast to adventure at this delectable dining location.

Hoot’s Bar & Grill

Grab a shuttle up to Top of the World to Hoot’s Bar and Grill. Play a game of pool, throw some darts, and get the best smash-burger and tater tots on the mountain. Hoot’s is the spot for adults to have a great time off the slope.

Linwood Center

The Linwood Center, located at the base of the mountain, is a great place to spend a couple hours on a rainy afternoon. The Linwood Center has a gym and library that are open to the public. Linwood also has a market with fresh bread and baked goods, produce, meats, and grab-and-go meals.

Greenbank Observatory

Located just off the mountain, Greenbank Observatory is home to the largest steerable telescope in the world. Yes, in the world. GBO offers different tours of their telescopes, classes, and events for all. The family friendly science center is a great place to spend a day and learn about the final frontier.

No matter the weather, there are memories to be made in Mother Nature’s Mountain Playground. Grab your waterproof gear, your friends, and a good attitude and we’ll see you on the mountain.
