The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce that Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort, in partnership with GNCC Racing, which runs the Grand National Cross Country Series, an AMA-sanctioned National Championship Series, is offering a 10 percent discount for AMA and ATVA members during GNCC Weekend, set for Jan. 30 through Feb. 1 at the resort in Snowshoe, W. Va.
All racers, friends and family with an AMA or ATVA membership card will receive 10 percent off 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 discount is valid for all AMA and ATVA members, regardless of whether they are competitors in the GNCC series.
"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 than 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 in line for each tour will ride for free.
The largest ski resort in West Virginia, Snowshoe Mountain Resort sits at 4,848 feet elevation with 60 slopes and trails, and 12 which are 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 village's many restaurants and coffee shops.
"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, Fla., which runs Feb. 18 through March 3. The Moose Snowshoe GNCC takes place June 27-28. For more information, go to www.gnccracing.com
