Vail Resorts To Purchase Seven Springs Mountain Resort | News, Sports, Jobs
SEVEN SPRINGS, Pa. — Seven Springs Mountain Resort, Hidden Valley Resort and Laurel Mountain Ski Area will be sold to Vail Resorts Inc.
The sale is expected to be finalized this winter.
Seven Springs has grown over the past decade to become one of the top-rated ski resorts in the East, while its terrain parks and super-pipe have also consistently been rated as the best in the East.
“We are incredibly excited to have the opportunity to add Seven Springs to our family of resorts along with Hidden Valley and Laurel Mountain,” said Kirsten Lynch, CEO of Vail Resorts. “As a company, we have been focused on acquiring resorts near major metropolitan areas as we know many skiers and riders build their passion for the sport close to home. These great ski areas in Pennsylvania are a perfect complement to our existing resorts, creating a much stronger connection and compelling offering to our current and future guests in Pittsburgh as well as those in other critical markets such as Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Cleveland.”
Winter operations at each resort, which began with a successful opening day this past Saturday at Seven Springs, will continue in ordinary course of business throughout the 2021-22 season. Current passholders, hotel guests, as well as group and event leaders will not be affected through the transition of ownership. Vail Resorts plans to add access to the three resorts’ passholders to select Epic Pass products for the 2022-23 North American ski and ride season.
