CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Timberline Four Seasons Resort is using crowdfunding to raise money for improvements.

The Tucker County resort launched an online crowdfunding on Tuesday at www.snowfunding.com. The goal is to raise $75,000 in 65 days.

Timberline CEO Fred Herz tells The Charleston Gazette (https://bit.ly/1JHbQou) that the resort sees crowdfunding as a way to engage customers in its activities and planned undertakings.

He says crowdfunding gives customers a sense of belonging and participation.

Money raised by the crowdfunding will help pay for upgrading the ski lodge, hotel rooms and a terrain park.



Other planned improvements include additional hotel rooms and 40 new snow guns.
