surrounded by forests and lush meadows. Walk out the doors of the inn to enjoy
world class West Virginia Fly Fishing, cross country skiing, Mountain Biking
and more. West Virginia Outdoor Activities are right at your back door when you

The Elk River Touring Center is located on Hwy 219 five miles from Snowshoe
Mountain Resort and seven miles from the Highland Scenic Highway. Our location
and exceptional service make Elk River the destination for winter fun. Our elevation at 2750' is high enough to receive an annual

We promote Cross Country Skiing In West Virginia on the trails which
criss-cross the Highland Scenic Highway 150, which peaks at an elevation of
around 4700'. The downhill skiing at nearby Snowshoe Mountain peaks at 4848',
making for two of the highest (and snowiest!) points in West Virginia.
Elk River offers cross country
ski and snowshoe rentals in Slatyfork and downhill ski and snowboard
rentals at Snowshoe Mountain resort.
