Local Company to Offer Fractional Ownership in Condos at Snowshoe 3
Author thumbnail By M. Scott Smith, DCSki Editor

The real estate market at West Virginia’s Snowshoe Mountain Resort continues to be robust, as documented recently on DCSki. With the cost of new condos now climbing above $300,000 at the resort, a local company has started offering fractional ownership to lower the cost of entry to Snowshoe’s burgeoning real estate market.

Reston, Virginia-based MountainFractional Properties has begun selling a limited number of 1/4 shares in luxury condominiums at the top of Snowshoe Mountain. Fractional shares allow multiple parties to share ownership of a condo. The fully deeded and transferable fractional shares entitle the owner to a percentage use of the condo, along with the ability to enlist the condo in a rental or management program.

Fractional shares have become a popular ownership option at western resorts, and are now beginning to become available in the east.

MountainFractional Properties will be offering 1/4 shares at Snowshoe’s new Allegheny Springs luxury condominium development, which has amenities such as valet parking, concierge services, in-room broadband internet access, a fitness center, hot tubs, and a heated outdoor pool, located in the heart of the mountaintop Snowshoe Village. A fully-furnished 1-bedroom quarter share will be sold for $89,450, the company reports, providing an owner with access to the condo 13 weeks of each year.

“We are very excited to be able to provide an alternative to the traditional options currently available at Snowshoe,” explained Charles Lobsenz, the managing member of MountainFractional. He added that the fractional ownership opportunity will allow buyers to participate in the upside of Snowshoe with a much smaller investment.

For 300K you could buy 3 condos in Canaan Valley and be within minutes of Timberline and Canaan Valley Resort, 1 hr from Wisp and 1 1/2 hour from Snowshoe. It doesn't make sense to pay that much for a snowshoe condo to me. But then again I still work for a living so I can't be too smart.

I agree with myrto. I may be a bit biased as I recently purchased a condo at Timberline, however, having gone skiing at both I truely have a better time at Timberline. I would much rather spend my time skiing than in line waiting to ski. The only downfall with Timberline is the lack of a high speed lift. 1 of these babies and it would completely change folks opinions about the resort.

Its great to be a grad student...i've never been to Snowshoe on the weekend and didn't even know lines at ski resorts :) Kinda puts me out of the running for a condo anywhere though :( Lifes full of tough decisions.
