A short drive away (60 miles) from Snowshoe WV, you’ll find Seneca Rocks, WV.

This is where you’ll encounter vertical layers of quartzite.

Seneca Rocks WVSeneca Rocks – More than Just Rock Climbing

If you’re interested in learning how to climb rocks, there are climbing schools nearby. There, under professional guidance, you can improve your climbing skills on local rock formations of various difficulty levels. For those not interested in rock climbing, visiting Seneca Rocks State Park is well worth the trip. There are over 11,000 acres of woodland, with a fishing lake, and log cabins. It’s also where you’ll get to see amazing geological formations.  A good way to learn more about rocks is to visit Seneca Rocks Discovery Center, located at the base of the rocks. At this place, a 3-D map will show you an overview of the area and the steepness of the terrain.

Enjoy Caves and Caverns at Seneca Rocks

Meanwhile, if you’re interested in the underground caves filled with stalactites and stalagmites, then Smoke Hole Caverns will not disappoint you. The underground tour is approximately 2/3 of a mile and takes up to an hour. A guide accompanies visitors. At some spots, the surface is uneven, so proper shoes are needed.

Treasure Hunting at Seneca Rocks

This area is also a place to try gemstone mining. Visitors can purchase bags of mining rough and try their luck at a water sluice. It’s possible to find amethysts, rubies, quartz crystals, and fool’s gold (pyrite). While this is not a place where you can expect to get rich, it is definitely much fun to try out some mining on your own. Make sure to bring proper clothing with you.

Snowshoe MountainWith the 2017-18 winter season practically upon us, winter sports enthusiasts are no doubt busily preparing their equipment and making plans to head for their favorite slopes. To most people, the term ‘winter sports’ brings to mind locales such as the Colorado Rockies, Utah, Northern California, or various other ski resort areas generally associated with the western United States. Others may think of such notable European winter sports regions like the Swiss Alps, northern Italy, Norway, Austria and Switzerland. However, one of the fastest-growing and increasingly well-regarded winter sports locations in the eastern U.S. is beautiful Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia.

History of Snowshoe Mountain

Situated in the picturesque Allegheny Mountains chain of the ancient Appalachian Range, Snowshoe is located in West Virginia’s Pocahontas County in the small village of Snowshoe, near the towns of Elkins and Lewisburg. Now in its 43rd consecutive year of operation (opened in 1974), Snowshoe Mountain had previously been the site of extensive logging activity for over half-a-century. Snowshoe MountainA successful ski resort developer, ‘Doc’ Brigham, took notice of Snowshoe’s unlimited potential, and although it took several years before his ambitious vision began to fulfill the promise he had hoped for, he was ultimately rewarded as Snowshoe Mountain soon became one of the East Coast’s most popular winter sport destinations. During the 1990s, Snowshoe underwent several expansion upgrades and improvements, most notably the development of a surrounding village that included condominiums and other commercial ventures as well as new ownership.

Snowshoe’s winter climate (average January temperature is 28° F.) provides absolutely near-perfect conditions for winter sports, receiving an average of 180 inches of annual snowfall, and even in the nearly unheard of occasion of a ‘snow drought,’ the resort has 100% snow-making capability, ensuring plenty of white powder for their visitors to enjoy.

roadkill cookoff

Roadkill Cookoff Returns To Snowshoe WV

By on September 26, 2017

The next time you pass some good roadkill near Snowshoe West Virginia, don’t just think “dinner.” Think “Winner.” It’s time for the West Virginia Roadkill Cookoff!




roadkill cookoffFeatured on the Food Network, the Travel Channel, and the Discovery Channel, the annual Snowshoe WV Roadkill Cookoff is a unique culinary event that is returning to the Snowshoe Mountain area once again for 2017. In the Cook-off, amateur chefs from all over the country compete to prepare a dish in which the key ingredient is “any animal commonly found dead on the side of the road.” For mainstream roadkill aficionados, this could include deer, rabbit, and turkey. Edgy and innovative chefs might offer exotic dishes such as groundhog, opossum, squirrel, snake, and crow prepared with curry, sriracha, chipotle, or other spices to complement the bold flavors of the meat. In case you were wondering, none of it tastes like chicken.




Starting on September 29, the annual Autumn Harvest Festival and West Virginia Roadkill Cookoff at Snowshoe Mountain should be a popular destination for both locals and tourists, with up to 10,000 people expected to attend each day through the 30th. If you are not competing in the Roadkill Cook-off, bring a good appetite, purchase a taster’s wristband, and get ready to sample the entries starting at 10:30 a.m. Be sure to put in your bid for the $150 People’s Choice prize to be awarded to the best-tasting and most attractively presented roadkill dishes.




This isn’t your grandma’s roadkill casserole. Expect to find solid hometown classics such as squirrel gravy over biscuits, but prize-winning entries of previous Snowshoe WV Roadkill Cookoff have been creative, including Chinese “Chef Boar-R-D” Noodles, Smashed “Pota-doe” Patties, or “I Wanna Iguana Nachos.” For the linen-napkin crowd, the Roadkill Cook-off competition has featured such dishes as “Venison from Venice,” a braised venison with lightly sauteed portobello mushrooms, toasted pecans, lime-infused rice, and cilantro pesto.




roadkill cookoffThinking about competing in the Roadkill Cookoff yourself or with a team? If you’ve ever passed a bear carcass in the woods and thought, “I bet this would go so well with a teriyaki glaze,” or come up with some tastily innovative solutions to the problem of the rabbits in your garden, the Snowshoe West Virginia Roadkill Cookoff might be the contest you’ve been waiting to join. Entry is free and the complete contest rules are available online. The top cash prize is worth $1200, and all participating teams not otherwise receiving an award will get $100. Don’t you think you should try? Anyone can make chicken. It takes a true adventurer to eat crow.




In evaluating your entry for the Roadkill Cook-off, the judges are looking for are taste, originality, presentation, and showmanship. 25% of the dish must be wild game, and, depending on the original location of the food, points may be deducted for asphalt or gravel. Luckily, all judges, the rules warn us, “have been tested for cast-iron stomachs.” Thankfully, they also have “sworn under oath to have no vegetarian tendencies,” since very few blocks of tofu are killed by passing cars. Make no mistake: The Roadkill Cook-off is definitely a festival for people who appreciate the value of good, hearty meat.




The Autumn Harvest Festival and West Virginia Roadkill Cookoff is a great event to take in West Virginia’s unique blend of humor, rock-hard hometown toughness, and enthusiastic celebration of all that the beautiful fall season in this state has to offer. Come on over to Snowshoe Mountain for some one-of-a-kind arts and crafts, some outstanding local bands, and above all, this unique and unforgettable taste experience this September 29-30, 2017.
