Sunnytop Ski Lanes
Sunnytop Ski Lanes
Sunnytop Ski Lanes is a location in Fallout 76.
Background[edit | edit source]
The northern-most ski resort in the Savage Divide region of Appalachia, Sunnytop Ski Lanes was one of many popular skiing destinations in the region. The resort featured four ski lanes: Massey's Tumble (Green circle), Good Times (Blue Square), Friendly Hills (Blue Square), and Champion (Black Diamond).The lifts were in operation from 9:00AM to 4:00PM and ski lessons were available every other Monday at 9AM. The resort had multiple questionable business practices including encouraging unskilled skiers to learn by practice, that "What's the worst that could happen? Fortune favors the bold!"; requiring guests to tidy their suite prior to departure at the cost of a "mandatory housekeeping gratuity"; and requiring guests to self-check-out prior to 8:30AM using the in-room terminals before returning the room key to the front desk, also at the cost of additional administrative and check-out fees. The resort had marketed four skiing promotions, ""Marco Polo Ski Challenge", "Ski-Through at Sunnytop Grill", "Ye Olde Ski Joust", and the "Three-Legged Ski Race", of which the latter resulted in injuries to fourteen guests. To cap off the mismanagement of the resort, the water feed line to the snow-making machines was "mixed-up" with the sewage disposal line, resulting in a banning of all ski slope usage until "the snow color reverts to white".
Following the Great War, Margie McClintock and her raider group, the Diehards, took over the resort as their base of operations. In the following months/years, the group preyed on travelers and worked in conjunction with the cultist group at the Palace of the Winding Path. After they went extinct, the lodge was claimed by new tenants.
Points of interest[edit | edit source]
- The lodge is fairly large and shaped roughly like the letter Z, stretched out on a north-south axis. The central building is flanked by the main gate and courtyard in the west (with several intact vehicles and lots of open spaces for fighting) and the rear deck, which once provided guests with access to the slopes and luxury amenities. Now all of it is derelict, surrounded by traces of raider presence. The deck contains a bobblehead spawn in the skiing lift operator's hut, with a magazine spawn by the jacuzzi (near the rear courtyard). Another magazine spawn can be found by the northwestern end of the building, with a bobblehead spawn on the opposite side.
- The main lodge has three distinct floors. The central floor spans the length of the building and contains the reception and foyer in the center (check by the fireplace for a magazine spawn and the reception key holes for a key to the locked room in the northwest). Off to the south is the dining area and bar, with an intact banjo to get the Well Tuned bonus. At the southeastern tip are two guest rooms. On the opposite end are the rooms used by the raider leaders. In Margie's room is her terminal, a bobblehead, a locked safe, and Margie McClintock's Holotape.
- Upstairs at the southern end lies another guest room with a steamer trunk in the back, but the door is trapped: Opening it triggers a trap that will fire at the door immediately. The central part of the upper floor overlooks the foyer and contains minor loot scattered around the lounge.
- The basement below the foyer served as a rental shop and locker room for the vacationers. Behind the counter is a terminal (related to Key to the Past) with a bobblehead spawn next to it, with a weapons, armor, and a magazine spawn opposite. Around the bend, near the staircase leading to the foyer, is a power armor station with a random power armor spawn.
