The 2016-2017 winter season has already kicked off at Seven Springs, thanks in part to snowmaking upgrades over the past summer. The Pennsylvania resort added 30 new HKD Viper ground snowguns, which are portable and can be easily relocated to maximize slope coverage. Several areas of snowmaking lines were also replaced across the mountain to increase reliability. To keep snow in great shape, Seven Springs added a new PistenBully 400 snowcat and PistenBully 400 Winch snowcat to its fleet. These machines provide state-of-the-art agility and precision.
When skiers and snowboarders head off the slopes, they can top by the brand new Seven Ten Bistro. According to Seven Springs, the bistro will offer “eclectic food pinned with a bowling-inspired menu.” Seven Ten Bistro is located adjacent to the bowling alley on the second floor of the main lodge, and the bowling alley has also received a complete overhaul with a new lounge area, new scoring system, and new bowling equipment.
The Matterhorn Lounge has also been renovated over the summer with an updated layout, new carpeting, lighting, and furnishings. Open to the public Friday and Saturday nights and available for private bookings, the Matterhorn Lounge includes several VIP areas, a new dance floor, and tableside service.
Seven Springs has added two new retail stores, including the Accents boutique and the Orvis Store. Accents will offer Vera Bradley clutches, purses, and scarves and Brighton necklaces, bracelets, charms and watches. The Orvis Store will sell fly-fishing and sporting goods. The stores are located on the fourth floor of the Main Lodge.
For those looking for an upscale lodging option, the resort will is unveiling the Tyrol Chalets, four chalets ranging from 2-6 bedrooms located near the Lodge and within walking distance to the slopes.
