Snowshoe GNCC

A couple friends and I are heading to Snowshoe, WV this weekend to watch round 9 of the GNCC racing. Does anyone have any advise as to the best place to watch the action?

Theres a mud hole/rock garden down near the lake in the woods. Take the lift to the bottom and then ask someone where its at.. or follow the crowd.

Thanks. Last year was the first time at Snowshoe. We wondered around and found some good spots. When I got home I found some youtube videos of a few places that looked really interesting. I believe the place you described was one of them. Thanks for the tip.

Yeah ride the Ballhooter lift down, then its about half way up the mtn back towards SilverCreek, just follow the crowd. Depending on which direction they run there are a couple of nasty hill climbs out past the mud bogs. You can also walk out the gravel road from the lake back towards Silver Creek and find where the course crosses the road, the hill climbs and some nasty creek beds, rock gardens are down in there.

Find a course Marshall or a pro team spotter/mechanic with a race radio, stand next to them for a while and you can here where the bottlenecks are and they usually say which mile markers the nasty spots are between.

Snowshoe is awesome but it can be a pain for spectators to get to the good stuff if you watch the start.

we usually ditch the start and head to the woods ASAP, then start hoofing it to the spots where riders need help. A few years ago we were still helping riders down a nasty washout about 5 minutes before the afternoon race started and they delayed the start an hour. they were still pulling riders out from the afternoon race at 7:30pm
