West Virginia’s Snowshoe Mountain Resort is continuing to develop its mountaintop village by breaking ground on Allegheny Springs, a new upscale lodging facility, and a new aqua fun center, Split Rock Pools.
Allegheny Springs is a two-phase project with the first phase scheduled for completion in the summer of 2002. The facility will cap off the south end of the Village at Snowshoe, which already includes the Rimfire Lodge and Highland House, both constructed within the past couple years. In addition to providing upscale housing, the slopeside Village at Snowshoe includes retail stores and restaurants.
Visitors to Snowshoe this winter will get to see construction underway on Allegheny Springs. Allegheny Springs will have four floors of lodging and a ground level with retail and restaurant space.
Visitors this winter won’t have to wait for the a new aqua fun center, which is scheduled to open at the beginning of the season. The new Split Rock Pools aqua center, at the south end of the Village at Snowshoe, features a water geyser, a dumping whiskey bucket, and a slide, all geared towards kids. While the kids frolic in the pool, their parental units will be able to watch an Allegheny Sunset from one of two large hot tubs.
The mountaintop aqua center is designed as an indoor/outdoor facility, with hot tubs and other water features inside and out, allowing for two separate atmospheres.
