It is hard to believe that T-Mobile does not cover that big ski resort in WVWas this review helpful to you?
Was an AT&T customer and was happy when we got reception at Snowshoe. Switched to Cricket and since it is on the same network it worked just as wellWas this review helpful to you?
This might be hard to believe but there is a support pole inside the Mountaintop Check-in at the entrance to the Ski shop where you can get Verizon cell service. I was walking by a guy I heard commenting about it and I tried it and BOOM. If you are desperate and don't have an i-phone for imessage, then give it a try. Good luck!

The phone finds 1 bar, but when you try to make a call it never goes through. ATT has some minimal service, but even with a powered cell booster nothing is good up here. By the way, my condo is on the Cupp Run side of the mountain and I have a clear view to the west.Was this review helpful to you?
Thank Goodness for wifi I was able to iMessage and email. 5% AT&T service on all of mountain.Was this review helpful to you?
Since the Greenbanks Radio Telescope is on the east side, and thus a radio blackout zone, nobody will get coverage at Silver Creek resort or off the peak of the mountain at Snowshoe. 4 stars because, while not perfect, it is the best anyone can legally do. Spotty and hit-or-miss coverage at the top of Snowshoe mountain. Don't hold your breath in Snowshoe Village, but around the Widowmaker lift you'll get coverage. Strong reception on the west side, especially around the Cupp Run slope. The west side is opposite Greenbanks. Also strong reception at the entrance to Snowshoe and coverage sometimes during the drive up. The further away you get from Cupp Run, the weaker the signal. (For a real treat, try driving using your radio near Greenbanks not too far away. Total static.)Was this review helpful to you?
The West Ridge side, the one NOT facing the Green Banks radio telescope, has good reception. The other side, where most of the ski slopes are, is a radio blackout zone so nobody upon no one can or will have cell phone coverage. The US Government won't allow it. You can also generally get reception at the top of the mountain.Was this review helpful to you?
I noticed alot of people complaing about the cell phone service in southern WV near the Snowshoe Mountain area. There is a reason behind this and it is not the fault of the cell phone service carriers. When you are traveling in that area there is a dead space in cell phone service due to the Greenbank National Observatory. Cell phones interfer with the satalite dishes and the transmittion there so the gov't put a ban on cell phone service in that area. Just a heads up to those who are complaing about their carriers. There is nothing the carriers can do about this. This effects all cell phone carrier services.Was this review helpful to you?

Spotty GSM coverage. Southwestern part of the resort, the side with Cupp Runn, is perfect signal. Northeastern / Silver Creek part of the resort is nothing. Seems to be good coverage if you have a clear view to the west.Was this review helpful to you?
