What kind of build are you thinking of doing with the cabin? Custom? Modular? Kit?

If I'm able to secure a significant raise this year, I'm REALLY tempted to go ahead and make an offer on one of the pedestal units that's up for sale at Black Bear Resort right now. Sub $100k and in good condition. Once Timberline opens back up and the DC area folks realize it's got better lift capacity than Snowshoe? Oh boy, it's gonna rake in the dough!
Yes, I was excited when Perfect North won the bid. Though they only have the resorts in Indiana, I've heard great things about them. I'm anticipating Timberline to be one the East Coasts premier ski resorts when they reopen. Won't look forward to the crowds that it will draw.

Well there is Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood In Oregon as well. Spent the night their back in 2000 on that Mt and have loved that Mt ever since my first trip to Oregon to see family when I was in short pants. Mabe they took the name from the one in OR?? Let it be the Timberline of the east coast as the one on Mt Hood is THE Timberline on the west!!.

My experience at Snowshoe the couple of years I lived there was that high-speed lifts fix most of those issues. While you'll definitely have more people on the slope at once, Timberline doesn't suffer from the "bunnies on the big-boy slopes" issue that Snowshoe and other Mid-Atlantic resorts have, and I doubt high-speed lifts will affect that too much. It's more a matter that there just aren't that many greens there vs other resorts.

Timberline is actually an entire community. Most people use the name to refer to the actual ski slopes, but it's also a gated community. I've got several friends who have houses there (they're way above MY pay grade) IIRC, the whole area was developed back in the 1970s which was well after Timberline Lodge in Oregon was constructed as a WPA project. It's just one of those things where people name different place the same thing I guess.

Decisions still to be made. Probably a kit.

Land in WV!

GTOGunner,
Would you be willing to consider hosting an event once a year?


Please consider a range at least 100 ft wide by 400 yards deep, maybe a Known-Distance (KD) Project Appleseed event?
Find out about this national program here.


And congrats on your new acquisition!

Which is preferable, shooting up hill or down hill?
