It seems the season that never quite started on the East, just won't quit. Over a foot of new snow has fallen across the higher elevations of Pennsylvania and Seven Springs isn't going to miss the opportunity to slide on snow once more for the spring season. The resort has announced they will re-open for skiing and riding on Tuesday, April 24 at 10:00 a.m.
This will mark the latest date the resort has ever been open for skiing and riding. In 1996, guests skied and rode until April 14. The resort had previously closed for the 2011/2012 season on March 25.
“We are pleased to offer this opportunity for our guests to experience skiing and snowboarding this late in April,” Chief Executive Officer Eric Mauck said. “While we were not expecting the amount of snowfall that we received, our team did an outstanding job to allow us to be the only resort to re-open on the East Coast. Hopefully, this is glimpse of what is to come next season.”
The operation schedule for Tuesday is as follows:
Cortina chairlift and Wagner slope will be open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Ski/board tickets will be $24 per person.
Seven Springs will honor 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 season passes. In addition, 2012-13 season passes will be offered at the early purchase price of $429 price Tues., April 24 only.
Seven Springs was ranked the East Coast’s #1 terrain parks and halfpipe by readers of Transworld Snowboarding Magazine.
