In its continuing bid to become a year-round resort, Whitetail Ski Resort has started development of a new residential community. The Blair’s Ridge Townhome community, located adjacent to the Northern Lights ski slope, will feature units offering 1,000 square feet. Prices will start at $117,000. An official groundbreaking ceremony is set for Monday, November 3 at 11:00 a.m., although actual development started three weeks ago. Whitetail expects units to be ready for occupancy before the winter is out. Blair’s Ridge represents Whitetail’s second foray into residential development.
“This project is moving especially quickly,” said Stephen Rice, Whitetail’s President. “Our research indicates demand for somewhat smaller, more affordable residential/vacation homes on the mountain, and that’s just what Blair’s Ridge represents,” he added. “Just as we continued to expand our recreational offerings with the addition of a fly fishing school this spring, Blair’s Ridge represents another step in the overall growth of Whitetail,” he said.
Whitetail’s long-term plans include development of a golf course, the addition of new ski trails, and additional real estate development. During the spring, fall, and summer, Whitetail currently offers over 30 miles of mountain biking trails. Dusty Wissmath also directs a fly fishing school at Whitetail.
Waynesboro Construction is responsible for building the townhomes. Waynesboro Construction helped build Whitetail’s award-winning base lodge facilities seven years ago.
