This is a must do if you are in the village! We could see for miles and even passed over a momma deer with her twins. It's a little pricey but WELL worth it!

This was a summer visit to Snowshoe and the Ballhooter lift ride was great fun with beautiful scenery. Shavers Lake has a snack bar as well as kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and a beach.
