Seven Springs Mountain Resort announced a $230 million expansion last Friday, which will bring a number of improvements and additions to the Pennsylvania resort. According to Ski Area Management Magazine (SAM), the four-year expansion will add a Bavarian village, new hotel, new terrain and lifts, three housing communities, and a water park.
$80 million will be spent on mountain improvements, including a high-speed six-seater lift, a high-speed quad, and a number of lift replacements and realignments using existing equipment. Some trail networks will also reportedly be rebuilt.
On-site lodging capacity will be doubled by lodging developments, and hundreds of homes will be added to the area.
These enhancements are expected to be completed by 2005. Following this, the resort reports that a fifth phase of development will continue improvements through the year 2016.
