Summer Activities for Families in West Virginia at Snowshoe Resort

Reserve Today

Nestled nearly two miles out on the Cheat Mountain Ridge Trail sits the Sunrise Backcountry Hut. Beneath towering Spruce, the Hut offers a great dining alternative for those looking to 'get away from it all.'

Transportation to the Backcountry Hut includes a tour in our 4-seat, enclosed, and heated Polaris RZRs. This off-road tour will get you into Snowshoe’s backcountry areas and features remarkable scenic views, exciting terrain, and the opportunity to see areas of the mountain that few winter guests get to experience.

Arriving at the Sunrise Backcountry Hut, you’ll be treated to a meal that includes fresh baked bread, a hearty entrée served with vegetable sides, homemade dessert, and limited beer & wine or soft drinks – all prepared on-site by the cabin’s Hutmaster.

The Backcountry Hut can accommodate up to 20 people for dinner, a perfect outing for friends and family ( ages 12 and over due to transportation restrictions ). Take in the views, relax and connect with this one of a kind experience.
