Pennsylvania college students take note: the best season pass deal for shredding one of PA's top resorts with some of the east's best freestyle terrain is set to expire soon. College students (ages 18-24) can pick up a Seven Springs College Pass for just $309 until Nov. 30 2012. After that date the price increases to $399.
Season passes come with a host of year-round monthly perks for pass holders. These include discounts on lodging and other mountain activities like golf, sporting clays, spa treatments and more. In winter, students get discounts on lessons and the pass earns them one free ski or snowboard ticket during Season Pass Mondays in March. Most importantly, it means unlimited access throughout the season to all of Seven Springs terrain, especially their award-winning terrain parks.
Seven Springs Mountain Resort is the 2012 OnTheSnow Visitors' Choice Award winner for Best Park & Pipe in the Mid-Atlantic. Seven Springs features six terrain parks that cater to various ages and skill levels, including over 70 freestyle features in total. Seven Springs is also home to "The Spot," an Olympic-sized superpipe, as well as the North Park Halfpipe.
Last year the resort debuted their new urban terrain park (the first in the country) called "The Streets." Dedicated to urban enthusiasts, this park resembles an urban landscape, complete with hand rails, ledges, gaps and wall rides that pull inspiration from the nearby city of Pittsburgh. This setup is so hot, pro riders probably wish they could re-peat their undergrad in PA just to get in on this deal.
To qualify for the college pass you must be a full time student, age 18-24, enrolled with at least 12 credit hours for the fall semester of 2012 and/or the spring semester of 2013. College students must supply a current college ID, drivers license/birth certificate and copy of their fall 2012 and/or spring 2013 class schedule, showing at least 12 credit hours, at the time they pick up their pass. The pass is not available for students enrolled in online or web-based universities.
