SNOWSHOE, W.Va. – Beginning on May 19, Snowshoe Mountain Resort in Pocahontas County will open up for summer operations. In preparation, Snowshoe has released their schedule for the summer season.
While the Raven Golf Club is already open, a number of other activities will be opened up over the upcoming months. These summer events will include: the Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, 4848 Music Festival, GNCC Racing, Yoga Power Retreat, and more.
“With a name like Snowshoe, winter is usually the first thing that comes to mind when folks think about the mountain. Summer is our best-kept secret but the secret is getting out.” said Patti Duncan, Snowshoe President & COO. “Events like the Mountain Bike World Cup and the 4848 Festival are bringing new visitors to our region from all over the world. We’re excited to roll out the red carpet and show them what Almost Heaven is all about.”
Other mountain and lake activities will open up as well, such as hiking, scenic chairlift rides, off-road tours, e-bike tours, swimming, paddling, and more.

Pickin’ & Pedalin | June 17-19
This exciting new event is a fresh spin on Snowshoe’s classic Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival. They’re trading in the Blues for some fresh Bluegrass with a lineup featuring Railroad Earth, Mountain Heart, Strung Like A Horse, Stringus Khan, Shelf Life String Band, and more. Friday night will include a bourbon tasting alongside the live music. On Saturday there will be a mountaintop brewfest with over 40 varieties of beer for sampling, as well as plenty of delicious BBQ. The weekend will also feature mountain bike racing on Sunday – a “Dirt Bug Dash” for the kids on Easy Street, and an intermediate-friendly downhill race for the adults over on the Western Territory.

4848 Festival | July 7-10
Back by popular demand, the 4848 Festival offers a “Festivacation” experience where you get everything a music festival has to offer plus a mountain resort vacation!

This year’s lineup includes Greensky Bluegrass, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Wood Brothers, Leftover Salmon, Dumpstaphunk, and many more. More info and tickets here.
