DEED AND TAX INFORMATION Deed Information: DB 263 Pg. 628POCAHONTAS COUNTY AND THE UPPER GREENBRIER RIVER SNOWSHOE SKI & RESORT Welcome to Snowshoe Mountain, West Virginia's Premier Adventure Destination - Here at 4,848 feet above sea level, we live by the rules of the mountain... Sometimes that means calling in sick on a fresh powder day or fist-bumping complete strangers... Always it means answering loud and clear when the Mountain is calling. A summary of the history of Snowshoe Mountain includes; When Thomas "Doc" Brigham laid his eyes on the Cheat Mountain and Back Allegheny in 1972, he saw more than just a couple of mountains that had been logged barren. His vision was Snowshoe Mountain, a resort that over the years since it is opening in 1974 has become one of the East Coast's top resorts for winter fun. Much has changed here at Snowshoe Mountain since opening day on December 19th, 1974. Today our beautiful village has just about everything you could need up here on the mountain, but back then there were only a couple of buildings. The Shaver's center, the old pump house, a water treatment plant, and dorms for employees. At that point there was not a place for guests to stay, and the closest spot to lodge was over forty minutes away in Marlinton. Ed Galford, now our Vice President of Operations, was here back then in the 74/75 winter season as a snowmaker. "That was the thing, we had a great resort but nowhere for guests to stay." Galford said. In 1976 a local businessman, Fred Burford, took over the business and changed everything with projects that focused on the importance of lodging and the importance of expanding ski areas. "We had a big growth year, we built the Powder Monkey lift, we expanded the water facilities for making more snow, we built Timberline and Spruce Lodge, which are both gone now," Galford said, "We built Shamrock, Treetops, and Leatherbark, which are all still on the mountain today. All of that appeared within a one and half year period." But interest rates were high back then, and in the mid 80's the resort went back to the bank for a couple of years. When Japanese developer, Tokyo Tower Development Company Limited, purchased the resort in 1990 they had bought Silver Creek, once a rival resort from across the mountain. They built the golf course; they bought the inn at the bottom of the mountain and most importantly they brought skier visits up to 450,000 a year. Real change began when Intrawest purchased the resort in 1995. They added snow tubing and night skiing at Silver Creek and built the first terrain park. Intrawest began phase one of Village construction and opened Rimfire Lodge in 1999. After that, the Village expanded rapidly into what it is today. Now we are embarking on another exciting time for the resort, as we enter into new ownership yet again. Snowshoe and our sister Intrawest resorts became part of an even larger family of mountains in 2017 with Alterra Mountain Company. And the buzz at 4,848 feet is that the future of Snowshoe Mountain is brighter than ever. Estimated drive times to Snowshoe Charlotte, NC  6 hours- Charlottesville, VA  3 hours - Columbus, OH  5.5 hours -Lexington, KY  6 hours -Pittsburgh, PA  4 hours -Raleigh, NC  6.5 hours -Roanoke, VA  3 hours - Richmond, VA  4 hours - Washington, DC  4.5 hours CRANBERRY GLADES/NATURE CENTER The Greenbrier River is one of the longest untamed rivers in the eastern U.S. From source to mouth, it flows 162 miles through some of the most scenic lands in eastern West Virginia, descending out of the loftiest mountain forests through some of its most beautiful bluegrass farms. The stream is a favorite destination for anglers and paddlers and is ideal for light tackle and fly fishing. The river in Pocahontas County is traditionally stocked with trout once in February and once every two weeks in March, April, and May. Because it is undammed, the river benefits from a lack of motorized river traffic. Much of the upper river is too shallow to accommodate deep-draft boats, to the benefit of kayakers and other recreational paddlers. GREENBRIER RIVER TRAIL A five-minute walk from the cabin, the Greenbrier River Trail follows the upper Greenbrier River through Clover Lick. The trail is an increasingly popular hiking, bicycling, ski-touring, and horseback-riding route that extends more than 77 miles from near I-64 at Lewisburg, in the south, to Cass Scenic Railroad State Park, in the north. Especially on weekends, the trail-access parking area at the Clover Lick depot may be busy with recreational enthusiasts. The trail was named by Backpacker magazine one of the top ten hiking trails in the U.S. The depot is also a popular river launch site for kayakers and canoers. At less than a 1% grade, this trail is perfect for families. Take your family on a bicycle ride  forget the city, the traffic, and the rush. Relax, enjoy the scenery and the wildlife here in Pocahontas County along one of West Virginia's most successful rail-to-trail conversions. Beginner and intermediate mountain bikers will appreciate the packed gravel surfaces on the majority of the Trail. More advanced bikers will find greater challenges on the adjoining mountain trails and abandoned logging roads that characterize the national forest bordering the T
