See SAM’s recent report for background on what led to Timberline Four Seasons’ status.
Fred Herz, Timberline president, said: “We are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to purchase a raw mountain in Tucker County, West Virginia, over 30 years ago and grow it into the premier destination for mid-Atlantic and southeast skiers."He continued, "After some challenging seasons, our family has chosen to exit its investment in West Virginia in cooperation and consultation with Griffin Financial Group," which is serving as investment banker for the sale. "We believe it is the right time to pass Timberline on to new ownership."
