Did anyone see Timberline just announced this?

 

Any chance we can get a combined season pass?

 

Also implied they are installing some type of electronic ticket checking system….

Interesting commentary about saving 350 jobs, having to be open at the same dates and the always questionable “revenue sharing” to be tracked by a bean counter.

I think this is good news.

Reading the article, I think the offer will be a joint resort season pass?  But could it be for single day tickets?  What will this mean for current holders of a season pass to only one of the mtns?  In any event, I think this is a great development for visitors or regulars who want to maximize the nice synergy of two fine mtns in close proximity.  Curious how they will ensure both mtns open and operate on same dates, but go for it!

Well, now Canaan announced the “deal” isn’t yet a “deal”.  Apparently Timberline jumped the gun.

Classic Timberline. Nothing like being a little premature. Maybe an angle to put more pressure on CVR to go through with the deal??

Is that just so typical or what from da valley.  Well, I hope it does go through and that both places prosper.  Pray for a good winter.

Thanks for the info.  So, Timberline is still in deep trouble financially.  Has there any recent news or actual movement of both (Canaan & Timberline) to be merged for snow lovers?

you know, since one is public and one is private that does not seem too likely, unless, creepy thought, timberline got the management rights to canaan valley ski area …. oh no….

….that and the power company shut their power off several weeks ago for non-payment of bills. I drove by last weekend and the place has been abandoned, looks more like a junk yard than a four season resort. There are broken snowguns, busted groomers, and parking signs from ski season toppled over and strewn across the parking lot.

Power was shut off to most of the resort, however a few lights were on inside the hotel…or maybe they’re running on a generator. Oh, and the website continues to say the Timbers Pub opens everyday at 11am, plus the chairlift rides begin at 10am Saturdays and Sundays.

LOL.

I can assure you there is no Timbers Pub (lights out, furniture piled up on itself, etc), and no chairlift rides.

Forensic financial audit will commence shortly….

I sent this onto some friends.  We’ll see what happens.  As a reference I have a fairly big network of friends in the hedge fund/investment world who are looking for deals like this.  Raising $10-15m isn’t a big deal if there’s some sort of return attached.

I think buying from the state would be relatively cheap.  It’s the working capital you’d need to restart operations.  

Back of the envelope is maybe $5m?  Possibly more if they upgrade a lift.  If I were a buyer the first thing I’d do is upgrade the lodge and upgrade the lifts and snow making.  Then advertise like crazy dates that it’d be open and stick to it.

They could probably spend $250-500k on Facebook advertising alone.  You could target everyone within a 3hr range who has an interest in skiing.  Then bombard them with ads and deals raising awareness.
