Western Territory Area Stats

In the early 1900s, when Cheat Mountain was being harvested of its abundant virgin Spruce, the area that is currently home to Cupp Run was known as the Western Territory. Few loggers would venture into this region because of the steep, rough and rugged terrain. Today, the Western Territory, with 1500′ of steeps to conquer, is home to the best and most advanced terrain in the region. Combine the legendary Cupp Run, designed by Olympian Jean-Claude Killy, and Shay’s Revenge, with steeps of 52%, and you’ve got a ski experience like no other.

  • 1,500 foot vertical drop
  • 1.5 miles of downhill

  • Western Express High Speed Detachable Quad Lift
  • 100% snowmaking
