The Glencoe Mountain has altered its status to that of a Community Interest Company, which means it is designed to be run for the benefit of those who live nearby.
One of the oldest ski resorts in the UK, the company is now to be run on the basis of all profits being re-invested into future development, Business7.co.uk reports.
Explaining the decision, a spokeswoman said the resort "has suffered from a severe lack of investment over recent years, with much of its infrastructure very near the end of its life".
New developments could help make Glencoe a very attractive place for those keen to buy some ski boots
ahead of the approaching winter to go.
As well as being a place for winter sports, Glencoe offers a course for those on mountain bikes
to enjoy as well, plus chairlift rides and archery.
Sited on the slopes of the 3,615 ft Meall a' Bhuiridh, it is also a location to attract Munro baggers, who can combine ticking the mountain off the list along with its 3,609 ft neighbour Creise.
