Discover the magic of winter in West Virginia with a snowshoe excursion through the nation’s third most forested state. Here, snowcapped mountains set the backdrop and covered trees line your path. Get lost in winter splendor and discover almost heaven.

Snowshoeing around the mountains of Canaan Valley and Blackwater Falls is the perfect way to begin your trek through Almost Heaven. Three area outfitters offer snowshoe rentals for a day exploring the snowy backcountry. Take advantage of the guided snowshoe tours at Whitegrass Cross Country Ski area. These informative treks led by historians, biologists, and local know-all’s are truly a one of a kind experience.

What better place to snowshoe than Snowshoe Mountain Resort? You could spend weeks at Snowshoe Mountain and never run out of things to do. After a long day of mountain treks in the snow, explore the mountaintop village filled with a wide range of options for lodging, dining, shopping and entertainment. While on the mountain, be sure to try your hand at other onsite adventures. Zip down the ski slopes and hit the tube parks, hop on a snowmobile ride through the backcountry or enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through softly falling snow. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Snowshoe’s heated Split Rock Pools lets you splash around in the great outdoors even on the coldest winter day.
