Morgantown, W.Va. (January 12, 2009) — GNCC Racing, in conjunction with Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort, has announced a special GNCC Weekend to take place at the resort from January 30 through February 1st. Through the relationship GNCC Racing has built with Snowshoe Resort, all racers, friends and family with an AMA or ATVA membership card will receive 10 percent off of room rates, lift and lodging packages by simply showing their card at check-in on Friday. Snowshoe will also offer special rates on activities at the Big Top Welcome Reception later that night. The discounts are available for all AMA and ATVA members.
‘I think it’s a great opportunity to introduce the people who have been here in the summer to our winter operations and it’s a great venue to do that,’ said Brad Larsen, director of marketing for Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort. ‘ At the same time GNCC is going to be making some of their announcements and there’s no better place to hear what’s new for GNCC this year then at Snowshoe where one of the marquee events is going to happen in June.’
On Saturday night, Snowshoe will offer snowmobile tours of the mountain. Two tours will run, and the first nine GNCC members to show up for each will get to ride for free.
The largest ski resort in West Virginia, Snowshoe Mountain Resort sits at 4848 feet with 60 slopes and trails, with 12 of those open for night skiing. With 180 inches of average annual snow fall and 100 percent snowmaking capabilities, Snowshoe offers winter activities for any age with snowmobiling, snow tubing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and terrain parks. And after a long day on the slopes, folks can warm up with a hearty meal at one of the many restaurants and coffee shops in the village.
‘Racer Productions is excited to have this opportunity for our racing families to get together for a non-racing function,’ said Tim Cotter, Snowshoe GNCC Event Director for Racer Productions. ‘We appreciate Snowshoe Mountain Resorts extending this invitation to AMA Members.’
The 2009 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series begins with the Parts Unlimited River Ranch GNCC in River Ranch, Florida, which runs February 18 through March 3. The Moose Snowshoe GNCC takes place June 27-28. For more information, go to www.gnccracing.com.
