What’s New at Liberty Mountain?
Liberty Mountain Resort is continuing to develop a year round oasis for all who love the outdoors. Below is a look at our current resort enhancements, as well as an overview of some projects taking place in the near future.
Alpine Room Renovation
The Alpine Room is getting a facelift! Following a leaky roof this past season, we are replacing the roof and ceiling and updating the interior. New paint, carpets, and blackout shades will bring the style more inline with the Highland Lodge. Wedding and Conference guests will find the modern look more appealing to host their special events, and our skiiers and snowboarders will enjoy the updated room as they eat at the Alpine Market.
Carroll Valley Bunker Restoration
To address drainage issues, we are restoring every sand trap on the golf course. This includes digging out the old sand, installing new drainage lines, and bringing in fresh sand and grass. Golf can continue to be played for the duration of the project.
Dipsy Doodle Snowmaking Pipe Installation
The installation of a new mainline pipe will expand the volume of water we have immediately available for snowmaking. This will allow us to take greater advantage of ideal winter conditions, and make snow faster and more efficiently.
Next summer, we hope to be replacing our Terrain Park J-Bar surface lift with a completely reconditioned CTEC Triple Chairlift! We have purchased this chairlift and reconditioning and permitting are in progress. The chairlift is similar to our Alpine Quad and First Class Quad in appearance and style. It will be installed just above (and between) the Dipsy Quad and Alpine Quad chairlifts. Lift service will be along the left side of the Terrain Park (looking up hill) and unload a bit further uphill than the existing Alpine Quad Chairlift mid station. During busy times, skiers and riders will be able to access our terrain parks by way of two chairlifts, both this new triple lift and the existing Alpine Quad mid station.
Liberty’s newest acquisition is the stone manor house, Fairway Springs, located along the first fairway of the golf course and on the right of Sanders Road as you approach the main resort. Built in 1840, this historic manor house will be thoughtfully renovated to become a most unique and intimate wedding and banquet venue. Plans include the addition of a reception venue, a deck overlooking the source of the natural spring, and a wooded outdoor ceremony location overlooking the spring fed pond. We anticipate this new venue to be available in spring of 2019.
Future Masterplan Phases
The next phases of our Masterplan will continue in the next 5 years to come. These phases include more architectural updates and enhancements on the ski-side buildings. All the exteriors of existing buildings will soon match in architectural style and color, that complement the new Highland Lodge and Fairway Hotel. We also have plans to construct an addition to the Fairway Hotel, adding more lodging rooms and suites, and connecting the Highland Lodge to the Fairway hotel via an elevated Bridgeway. This will bring our total guest room count to about 160 and provide greater capacity for groups and events to take place at our resort.
