Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing

Winter in the Mountains
The Elk River Touring Center is located on Hwy 219 five miles from Snowshoe Mountain Resort WV and seven miles from the Highland Scenic Highway. Our location and exceptional service make Elk River the destination for Snowshoe Mountain Rentals. Our elevation at 2750' is high enough to receive an annual snowfall of about 180 inches per year! Snowshoe Mountain WV is perhaps the best Cross Country Ski Resorts In West Virginia.

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.

Pocahontas County is surrounded by the Monongahela National Forest, creating a wonderland for snowshoers, winter hikers, and skiers. Come visit the natural beauty of this virgin land.

Five kilometers of trails are adjacent to the Elk River Touring Center and border the national forest. Thirty-five additional kilometers criss-cross the Highland Scenic Highway which is not maintained for motorized vehicles in the winter.

Sometimes we pack the trails around the center with a snowmobile, but no high tech grooming is available. Trails range in elevation from 2730' to 4750'. Average snowfall is 150-200" annually.
