DAVIS, W.Va. — Over $10 million of capital improvements are planned for the reopening of Timberline Mountain for the 2020-2021 season.

Officials with Perfect North Slopes, the new owners of Timberline Mountain, have announced that skiers and snowboarders will be riding to the top on a brand new 6-passenger high-speed chairlift next winter.

According to Timberline, the Doppelmayr 6-passenger lift will be the first of its kind in West Virginia.

In addition, the ski resort will have a 4-passenger mid-mountain chairlift that will service beginner and intermediate terrain along with easy access to a racecourse, terrain park, and most trail-side lodging, a release said.

“We look forward to participating in the economic development of Tucker County and we’re excited to announce the significant investment in Timberline Mountain’s infrastructure that will take place this summer. I believe skiers and snowboarders next season are going to really enjoy the new experience on this very special mountain,” says Chip Perfect, the President of Perfect North Slopes and CEO of Timberline Mountain said.

Perfect said other improvements will include a re-graded learning area with a conveyor carpet lift, extensive upgrades to the snowmaking system, a fully remodeled rental shop, consolidated food service facilities, and an updated outdoor area for a fresh sense of arrival.
