Day 1

Built on coal, West Virginia today looks to its abundant natural beauty and recreational attractions to provide for its economic future. A composite of old and new, West Virginia features high wooded mountains, deep valleys and broad, rolling plateaus. This morning we depart for this beautiful scenic wonderland and a three-night stay at Snowshoe Resort. Our condominium style lodging will be located in Expedition Station and will include Jr. Studio standard rooms which offer one queen size bed and one pull out sofa with a private bathroom. The room has a mini kitchen, microwave, dorm style refrigerator, toaster & coffee pot. Baggage handling is not available. Please feel free to pack food & beverage items you will need for breakfast and snacks as there are not many breakfast restaurants available at the village. Our afternoon rest stop will be at the Walmart in Elkins, WV and you will be able to purchase breakfast provisions there.

Day 2

Today we meet our tour guide for a day of local touring. We will travel to Cass Scenic Railroad State Park where you can enjoy breakfast on your own at the Last Run Restaurant plus free time to explore the company store, gift shop and visitor center. Nestled in the mountains, Cass Scenic Railroad State Park offers excursions that transport you back in time to relive an era when steam-driven locomotives were an essential part of everyday life. Our visit includes an afternoon ride to Whittaker Station. A box lunch will be provided to enjoy during your train ride. Later we will visit Green Bank Telescope, where we will see the world’s largest, fully steerable radio telescope. We will then enjoy some more Green Bank touring en route back to Snowshoe Resort.
