In 1970 Charnita faced bankruptcy, and it had to shut down its development. In the late 90’s Snow Time Inc. purchased the mountain and it was renamed Ski Liberty and later it was named Liberty Mountain Resort which grabbed the attention of the snowboarders. The Snow Time Inc. built the resort from scratch and in 2003 added Boulder Ridge Snow Tubing Area. To spread its arms, Liberty Mountain purchased the Carroll Valley Resort in 2010 and extended their boundary along with adding 99 rooms in Liberty and two restaurants. An 18 holes golf course was also made part of this resort.
