Snowshoe is a destination resort. They get a lot of natural, plus they have 1500' of vertical. Think lots of crowds, terrain, expensive lodging, resturants, shops, expensive lift tickets, etc. (4-5hrs, depending on weather). It's like Stratton, VT, but WV style.
Timberline has the best tree skiing around, plus they get a lot of natural, snow, and their lift ticket is reasonable. (3hrs)
WT, Lib, & Rt are for day trips. Expensive lift tickets. (1.5hrs)
Seven Springs is also a destination resort. Lots of terrain, but its a horizontal mtn, with very little vertical. Their lift tickets are reasonable. (3hrs).
I've never skied Blue Knob, but I hear they have some great terrain, when they have a lot of natural.
