The top mountain resort in the Mid-Atlantic region, Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia is open for the season, kicking off ski activity for the state.


“It feels great to get the winter season kicked off on time and on the right foot,” said Shawn Cassell, spokesperson for the resort. “We spent nearly $4 million this past summer on snowmaking upgrades and now…we’re already seeing the impacts of that investment. We’ve got about a dozen trails open, over 40 acres of terrain so far and we plan to add more soon. If the weather continues to cooperate, we should be able to expand terrain significantly…”


Planning on making a trip to West Virginia? Here are the deals you won’t want to miss.


In celebration of Snowshoe’s 45th anniversary, you’ll get 45 percent off your fourth night when you stay through March 20. The offer is not valid during the weekend ahead of Martin Luther King Day, Jan. 18–20, President’s Day weekend or Feb. 15–17.


If you want to get your fourth night free; however, you can book a stay in the resort’s Brigham rental homes. Just mention the offer when you book and then stay four nights (a maximum of six nights), through March 24. Book before March 20 to qualify.


Just stopping by and not staying the night? Check Snowshoe Mountain’s website for occasional deals on lift tickets, up to 60 percent off, depending on your age range and dates of visit

Coffee Table Books for the Adult-ish Traveler

There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
