Snowshoe to host Hillfest, a motorsports festival, this summer

By Stephen Baldwin, RealWV

While Snowshoe Resort may be known for their cold-weather sports, the mountain roads will be on fire this August!

The inaugural West Virginia Hillfest will be held this August 9-11 on Snowshoe Mountain. It will feature a variety of motorsports including a time trial hillclimb, drifting, scenic drives, and a car show. The full schedule will be released later this month.

“The economic impact will create waves across this state and nation,” says Jedediah Smith, Backroads of Appalachia. “Folks from across the mid-Atlantic and world will be exposed to our breathtaking mountain scenery and fantastic backroads.”

Hillfest is a collaborative project between Backroads Appalachia, West Virginia Grown, Snowshoe, Sierra, & Wheeling for Hope.
