Shawnee Land is a planned community in Frederick County, Virginia, United States. Shawnee Land is located on the eastern slopes of Great North Mountain. The Census Bureau defines it as a census-designated place (listed as Shawneeland) with a population of 1,873 as of 2010.[1] In its past, Shawnee Land was a ski resort with a number of slopes located on the eastern side of Great North Mountain. Shawnee Land thrived for a few years, but eventually the investors abandoned the project and the ski slopes were closed due to the proximity of the bigger, nearby, Bryce Mountain Ski Resort.
