In 1983, Sylvan Knob was purchased and renamed Sylvan Resort. It opened that year with 11 slopes and two new chairlifts. Later, they added a golf course by Robert Trent Jones they called the Masterpiece. While looking at the area from the lodge at the top of the hills, Jones remarked, “You can’t see anything but treetops.” The name stuck and the resort became known as Treetops at Sylvan. Still later, they dropped the Sylvan, but are still operating for both skiing and golf.
