Going to Snowshoe, WV - tips?

I'm going with some friends to ski at Snowshoe WV. What are some things I should know before heading out? I'm somewhere between a beginner and an intermediate.

if you are not all at the same level, nvr let one of your friends make u go down a hill u dont want to go down. When u get to the top of that hill and u are really really freaked out, dont do it, thats ur gut telling u ur not ready. i learned it the hard way, lol. not pretty. made it down ok, but i was so embarrassed b/c the ski patrol ppl saw me falling every step of the way down. its funny now, but it wasnt at the time.

The nothwest territory is long, and is about as steep typically as whitetail's limelight and snowdancer. There are a lot a long beginner runs that are pretty scenic. Stay away from caffeine while skiing, you will need to pee more often. Be careful about widowmaker, there are a lot of beginners who get stuck on it because the start is shallow. It gets to about 40-45 steep. Great run for good skiers. The far right side of the run is often icy. Silver spring is a good area for warm up runs/runs with fewer people.
