With the opening of Rimfire Lodge and Highland House, the Village at Snowshoe has begun to take shape, offering upscale lodging, dining and shopping at the top of West Virginia’s Snowshoe Mountain Resort. On February 25, Snowshoe began selling units in Allegheny Springs, the third major project of the Village at Snowshoe. Allegheny Springs will feature such amenities as a health club, private courtyard, thermal pool, valet parking and concierge. The two-phase project will commence in the spring and is expected to open during the summer of 2002, ultimately adding 146 premium mountaintop condominiums located within steps of the Ballhooter Express hi-speed lift.
Buyers flocked to Snowshoe during the weekend of February 25, snatching up 46 of 63 units offered in the first phase in what was believed to be the largest one-day real estate sale in the history of West Virginia.
“Snowshoe’s growth is the reason we are excited about being part of this new phase of the village and why we bought this property in addition to the property we already own in Highland House,” said Sherri Haskell, a resident of Virginia that purchased one of the first units at Allegheny Springs. Other buyers came from North Carolina, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia and Kentucky.
“The village is progressing as we anticipated when the first plans were drawn up four years ago,” explained Tom Wallington, Vice President of Resort Development at Snowshoe Mountain. “With the success of Rimfire and Highland House, buyers are seeing that Intrawest is committed to making Snowshoe the premier four-season resort in the region.”
A new multi-million dollar family Aqua Center will also be built this spring, including a water slide, Jacuzzi spa and swimming areas. The Aqua Center is scheduled to open in the fall.
