Liberty Mountain Resort is a winter sports resort located in southern Pennsylvania. Along with two other resorts, Whitetail Ski Resort and Ski Roundtop, it is owned by Snow Time, Inc.
The resort was originally developed in the mid 1960s as a focal point for a major real estate development. The name of the ski mountain and the development was Charnita, named after Charles G. and Anita Rist, the developer and his wife. Charlie Rist hired Dick Brown, who had just designed the neighboring Ski Roundtop the year before, to develop and manage the Charnitaski area. After the Tri-County Citizens Committee efforts "to prevent the continued growth of theCharnita development" in 1970, the development suffered bankruptcy. Snow Time, Inc. purchased the mountain and renamed it Ski Liberty, then Liberty Mountain Resort in the late '90s to be more enticing to snowboarders. In 2003, Snow Time, Inc added the Boulder Ridge Snow Tubing area. In May 2010 Liberty Mountain purchased The Carroll Valley Resort giving Liberty a total of 99 rooms as well as adding two more restaurants (The Tavern on the Green and The Inn) and an 18 hole golf course.
