For a budget-friendly, but still great stay at Snowshoe, consider the Inn at Snowshoe at the base of the mountain about 6 miles away from the main skiing area. There are shuttles that run between the Inn and The Village/Silver Creek at the top of the mountain, so staying at the bottom isn't a problem. In fact, it's kind of nice to not have to drive up the mountain in poor weather - let the experienced shuttle drivers handle that. And they keep to the schedule quite well so no long waits if you know the schedule. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful and the Inn has most amenities - there is a restaurant, bar, and ski shop. The WiFi in the hotel, however, is rather poor. No reception in the rooms, so you have to go to the lobby to get signal. Also, note that there is pretty much no cell phone reception (AT&T supposedly has some reception although its unreliable) anywhere, since all of Pocahontas County is a federal quiet zone due to the nearby National Radio Astronomy Observatory. Complimentary breakfast buffet was quite good and there was a good selection of warm and cold food available. But most importantly, there's also a pool and two hot tubs - great after a chilly day of skiing to relax and warm up. The hot tubs are directly adjacent to the pool, so if you get overheated, you can jump right in the pool, cool off for a bit, then get back in the hot tub to warm back up, all without ever getting out of the water. All of this for quite a bit less than what it costs to stay at the top of the mountain. We plan to come back and stay here again. My only complaint is that there was no refrigerator or safe in the room so its hard to save money on food by bringing your own.

Monday morning, we woke up and had breakfast at the hotel. In years past, the breakfast at the Inn was great. They had eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes and a variety of hot food, along with muffins, bagels, cereal and various cold items. Breakfast was served in the big restaurant area. To our disappointment, the breakfast at the Inn had been …
In the morning, we had a quick breakfast and then started making our way to Snowshoe. We stopped at the Ski Barn to pick up our rental skis and then stopped by the Inn at the base of the mountain. It was too early to check in to our room, but we got our lift tickets here. We left our car in the parking lot and took the shuttle up to the Silver …
After lunch, we got on VA-39 and headed west into West Virginia. In Marlinton, we turned onto US-219 south and then right onto WV-55 west into Monongahela National Forest. Upon entering the forest, we finally started seeing snow accumulation on the ground. The road had been plowed, but was still a little slushy. In about 11 miles, we turned into the entrance for Falls of Hills Creek Scenic Area. The short forest road to the parking area had not been plowed, ...
... incorporated carved pieces of walnut into the work. They were really beautiful. Some of the glass reminded us of the super high quality work done by our friend, Al Garber, in New Haven, whose lamps, sun catchers and other decorative pieces still adorn our house.
(we'll add pictures tomorrow.I hope.)
And, p.s., the truck's complaints had vanished this morning... so no hour-plus trip to uncertain expense and delay to get it fixed.
... known to still exist in the whole world; another is under restoration at the Cass RR, about which Linda wrote yesterday. The Climax design sports a single piston on each side of the boiler, mounted diagonally, with the force transferred thru a series of gears to two trucks under the firebox-and-boiler and two more under the (integral) tender. The wheels are small -- maybe 18 - 20 inches in diameter -- which together with the fact that all of the headend weight rests on driven ...
