Whitetail Resort, just across the Pennsylvania border and only 90 minutes from Washington D.C., is putting $2.5 million into snowmaking, paving and a larger design project. The resort with a 935-foot drop and about 117 skiable acres plans on adding a number of snow guns for existing terrain this season and is making plans for its future expansion.
Part of the $2.5 million figure is going toward the engineering of a new reservoir to supplement the resort's existing water capacity, allowing snowmaking to keep pace with future terrain expansions. A base lodge expansion is in the design phase, as well, with about 30,000 square feet and 400 additional seats for the resort's dining offerings.
This follows a positive trend for Whitetail, which has seen a number of improvements in the past decade or so. New trails have been cut, others have been lighted, new lifts have been installed and the snowmaking arsenal has steadily improved. Looks like Whitetail regulars can count on the good times to keep on rolling.
