Sawmill at Snowshoe Mountain Poised to Become ‘Deer Valley’ of the East


Only Private Gated Community in West Virginia Offering True Ski-In, Ski-Out Access and Best-in-Class Green Building Practices

SNOWSHOE, W.Va., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ — East Coast outdoor enthusiasts no longer need to head “West” to get their adventure fix. No matter the season, West Virginia’s Snowshoe Mountain has increasingly attracted enthusiasts of all types, particularly since top ski village operator, Intrawest, purchased the Resort in 1995. After more than ten years of unprecedented success, Snowshoe Mountain Resort welcomes Sawmill, a new cutting-edge private gated community boasting privileged ski-in, ski-out access and the state’s highest green practices.

Sawmill is the exclusive, gated residential community offering authentic, superior craftsmanship, radiating multi-generational appeal and embracing the natural heritage of the Mountain. Boasting the first 100 percent Energy Star(R) rated homes in West Virginia by incorporating up-to-date green building materials and methods, Sawmill delivers quality living for discerning homeowners seeking a tranquil retreat from everyday society stresses.

“My family has been traveling to Snowshoe Mountain for years, so I have great respect for the history of the region,” stated Thomas Tretheway, developer of Sawmill. “Sawmill will enhance a family legacy — and together with Intrawest, we will cultivate our shared vision for the future success of this mountain resort. We plan to put Snowshoe on the map as a true alternative option to the West.”

The 22-acre Sawmill community features 110 home sites to be purchased as homes or lots. Prices start at $750,000 with the high-end exceeding $3 million. The developers also contributed $1 million to Snowshoe Mountain to establish a partnership to build two additional ski trails for the 2007-2008 season.

Sawmill set the precedent high for future developments in the state by being the first and only to commit itself to building all of its homes to Energy Star(R) performance guidelines.

“We have committed ourselves to taking ‘green’ building practices to a new level,” commented Tretheway. “To truly deliver quality living it is important to look at the direction our future is taking. We are dedicated to establishing a precedent for new developments on the mountain by optimizing our energy efficiency and meeting all Energy Star(R) standards to provide a clean, safe living environment for the life of the community. This is another part of creating a multi-generational legacy.”
