There are a lot of places to choose from, but one of our favorite West Virginia ski resorts is Snowshoe Mountain Resort. Skiers and snowboarders alike enjoy the 244 acres of skiable terrain, including a 1,500 vertical drop. With about 180 of snow per season, this is a great place to enjoy winter weather activities.
