Davis, West Virginia – Pam Long of Timberline Resort wrote, "Despite the relatively warm winter weather, large numbers of skiers and boarders have traveled to Timberline Four Seasons Resort to enjoy the snow conditions of our high altitude Allegheny Mountain slopes."
The ski resort reports that occupancy in the rental program at Timberline Resort Realty has been at full occupancy over the holiday period between Christmas and New Year’s. Ski resorts consider this period critical to a successful ski season.
Indications are that the skier numbers experienced at Timberline are due to several factors. The improved snow making is considered the most important. The recently purchased two vertical turbine pumps have allowed an increase in pumping capacity to assure the resort’s expanding trail system is covered with snow early in the season. Timberline also recently purchased 60 snow guns for scheduled installation on the resort’s expanded ski area. This expansion of snowmaking capacity has allowed skiers to enjoy up to 12 trails during the holiday period.
Another factor contributing to the capacity occupancy is the recognized migration of skiers to the higher altitude mountains. This is particularly noticeable during periods of marginal cold weather conditions. Timberline has an elevation of 4,268 feet of altitude and true north-facing slopes on the Eastern Continental Divide.
In addition, Timberline is increasingly recognized for its slopeside food and beverage service at the resort’s Fireside Grill and Timbers Pub. The expanding entertainment schedule has also become increasingly popular. Two musical groups perform every weekend and holidays during the entire ski season.
