Lodging - If you’re lodging through Snowshoe Central Reservations, you may check in at Mountain Top Check in located in the Top of the World Lodging Complex at the South Mountain.  This check-in location is open 24 hours for your convenience.

Ravenswood: This is the most affordable and basic of the lodging option at just $33 plus tax for 2 nights in a private bedroom in a 3 bedroom dormitory style apartment. These are very basic, shared units and while they don’t offer luxury, they do offer a practical and affordable lodging option on top of the mountain with just a 2 minute walk to the heart of the village. Each 3 bedroom unit offers a full kitchen, shared bath, and access to coin laundry. 

Bike Rentals – If you choose to rent a bike, it is recommended that you pick up your bike and gear at the MAC (bike shop) on Friday evening (they’ll be open until 8pm) to avoid the Saturday morning crowds.  If you have your own freeride or Downhill bike but need gear (full face helmet, body armor, etc.) the bike shop does rent this stuff.  The MAC staff will open Saturday (9:00am) if you are unable to pick up your bike the night before.  You’ll want to get there at that time so you don’t miss any of the morning fun. 

Recommended Gear & Equipment

  • Required: A downhill or Freeride bike in good working order with a minimum of 6” of front and rear suspension and disc brakes (it’s always a good idea to have your bike inspected by a qualified mechanic if you’re unsure of its condition). Top of the line rental bikes from Kona and Specialized are available at the Mountain Adventure Center (MAC) Bike Shop.
  • Required: A full face helmet certified for downhill biking (rentals available at the MAC).
  • Moto style goggles or athletic style glasses, clear lenses are best for visibility in the woods.
  • Required: knee and elbow pads (rentals available at the MAC).
  • Forearm, shin, chest, back, and shoulder pads (rentals available at the MAC).
  • Mountain biking specific shoes or light hiking shoes/boots (no sandals)
  • Clothing: it’s best to be prepared for any possible weather conditions, this includes cool & windy, hot & humid, wet or dry. Bike specific shorts offer the best abrasion protection should you need it and also usually include a sewn in chamois for comfort. Long sleeves and pants can provide better protection from weather and abrasion, but aren’t required. While many shorts can be cotton blends for durability, most people will prefer synthetic materials such as polyester, nylon, or lightweight wool for tops / jerseys for their better breathing and moisture management properties. A lightweight rain jacket is also a good article to keep on hand.
  • Gloves: Gloves can be your best friend if you happen to take a spill out on the trails. There’s nothing fun about having a patroller pick little bits of gravel out of your palms 

  • Lindsey Voreis Snowshoe Womens Weekend

    Lindsey Voreis


    Lindsey Voreis started racing cross country in 1994 and she is a certified mountain bike skills coach through PMBI (Professional Mountain Bike Instructor - Zep Techniques) and the IMBA ICP (Instructor Certification Program). She has moved into certifying instructors through IMBA's ICP and her passion for teaching continues to grow and runs deep.
    Career Highlights: Starting the AllRide Tour in 2003 to promote mountain biking around N. America – Lindsey and her professional mountain biker husband, Kirt Voreis, have traveled North America for ten years promoting mountain biking as brand ambassadors to some impressive brands. Lindsey noticed a void in female participation so she started learning how to teach as a way to give women pointers and help them enjoy the sport more. Now she travels North America teaching women's mountain bike clinics in all corners of the continent. Lindsey says: "I’m so honored to have developed a following and some notoriety in the bike industry by teaching women’s clinics and spreading the passion instead of winning championships. It means a lot to be taken seriously as a skills instructor without racing my whole life."
    Lindsey's Goals: To "change women’s lives with two wheels and some dirt." I want to show every woman in the world how great mountain biking can be for their lives, their souls, their happiness and their peace of mind. I hope by teaching clinics around N. America that I will continue to reach more women and pay forward the joy the sport has brought into my life.
    Fun fact: Lindsey was also a contestant on the CBS TV Show Survivor: Africa in 2001. She describes it as one the best and worst experiences of her life but she appreciated the opportunity and the experiences she had in Hollywood after the show aired. She says being on the show led her to where she is now and changed her life forever.

The Camp will officially begin on Saturday morning at 9:00am and you will meet in the lower level of Allegheny Springs in Tygart Room. You may enter through the Village entrance located next to the MAC. There will be an informal social Friday evening at Old Spruce Café (located in the Village) from 6:30pm to ??pm and all are welcome to come out for a meet and greet with the other campers and coaches. It will be crowded so just look for a group of girls talking bikes. Campers can expect formal instruction and coaching on Saturday morning and afternoon as well as Sunday morning (both in the form of skills sessions and on-trail practice sessions). Sunday afternoon will be a little less formal allowing some flexible time for general trail riding to practice the skills developed over the weekend.
