How An Indiana Ski Area Saved A West Virginia Ski Resort

Perfect North is the largest of two ski areas in the state of Indiana, and is a favorite for skiers in neighboring Cincinnati, Ohio.

The ski area is small, as you can probably imagine, but it took a huge leap back in 2019 when it purchased the failing Timberline Mountain in West Virginia.

Perfect North purchased the property for $2.2 million, and has since dramatically improved the resort. Most notably, they replaced Timberline’s old chairlift with a highspeed six-pack, and added new facilities.

WLWT, a Cincinnati news outlet, covered the improvements at Timberline in the video below.

 

I can’t believe it used to take 20 minutes to reach the summit on that little mountain before they installed the new lift.

Well done to Perfect North for saving this gem of a ski resort.
