Default Timberline Resort

November 16, 2007 — West Virginia’s Timberline Resort has purchased 40 new snow guns for the 2007-2008 winter season, adding to 60 guns purchased last season. The new guns will allow Timberline to lay down a base of snow even quicker.

“Delivery of large volumes of high quality snow to Timberline’s 100 acres of skiable terrain is basic to the winter attraction of skiers coming to Tucker County,” said Tom Blanzy, General Manager of the resort.

With an elevation of 4,200 feet, Timberline normally receives healthy amounts of natural snow, but the resort has been enhancing snowmaking to fight mid-winter thaws that occasionally visit the mid-Atlantic region. In recent years, Timberline also added two new vertical turbine pumps to increase water pumping capacity.
