When most people think of spring break destinations, tropical beaches readily come to mind. But having a relaxing and memorable time during that last vacation before finals doesn’t have to take you south of the border. There are events happening closer to home that won’t turn you away if you don’t have a passport. This year, make sure to check out Ballhooter Spring Break at Snowshoe WV for amazing concerts, skiing, and other activities (like a kilt-making party) sure to make this spring break your best ever.
Now in its third year, Ballhooter Spring Break is gaining in popularity especially among its numerous nearby college campuses. Because attendance continues to grow each year, the event planners have been able to add more live performances and Irish-themed activities to the daily schedule.
Try your hand at the Mega Red Cup Bounce-Off Competition or the Human Foosball Contest. If that’s not for you, don’t worry; the Battle of the DJ’s, the Ballhooter Spring Break Beach Bash or various bands, like headliner Celtic punk rock band Dropkick Murphys, who are performing on an outdoor stage in the heart of Snowshoe WV, may be just what you need to let off some steam!
With a current snow base of 41 to 79 inches and average temperatures in the forties, Snowshoe WV is an ideal spot for avid winter sports lovers. With over seventy trails and lifts ranging from easy to difficult, along with a tube park and snowmobile tours, you’ll never be at a loss for something to do while you’re there.
Named for the “ballhooters“, the people who rolled logs down the steep mountainside, Ballhooter Spring Break honors their memory, hard work and adventurous spirit. The ballhooters knew how to have fun, and the planners of the event of the same name, embraces that history and offers non-stop fun for all spring breakers alike.
Ballhooter Spring Break 2015 runs March 6th through the 14th. For more information on lodging for this event (and making plans to visit this beautiful and affordable mountain resort), visit https://mountaintopcondos.com.
