The Snowshoe Resort consists of some 15,000 acres of the highest ridges in the West Virginia mountains. The original Snowshoe Area includes the basin and surrounding ridges that comprise the head of Shavers Fork of Cheat River. Since 1973 the company has developed a variety of ski slopes with 12 chair lifts. Accomodations include lodges, condominiums, town houses and private homes. The resort is one of the largest resort complexes in the eastern United States.
The history of this area prior to the resort is one of lumber. For seven decades the "wood hicks" logged the land with one of the most rough and tumble transportation systems, the logging railroad. Part of the railroad is today's Cass Scenic Railway. This book is the story of the logging times in this area.
