Pennsylvania’s Seven Springs Mountain Resort has announced that it plans to open on Saturday, December 12, following a week of good snowmaking temperatures and some natural snow from Mother Nature.
The resort’s snowmakers have been making snow across the mountain since December 1, when temperatures dipped. Last week, Seven Springs also received 10 inches of natural snow. This will allow the resort to open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, December 12-13. For operating conditions past December 13, be sure to contact the resort directly.
This season will be a bit different than past seasons, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Guests are asked to pre-purchase items such as lift tickets, rentals, and lessons via the Seven Springs web site. Opening weekend tickets will be priced at $64 per adult and $49 per child ages 6-11.
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has also published its own guidelines for travelers. As of December 4, 2020, travelers over age 11 entering Pennsylvania from outside the Commonwealth must be prepared to produce evidence of a negative COVID-19 test or place themselves in quarantine for 10 days upon arrival in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, this presents challenges for many skiers hoping to visit Pennsylvania ski areas from nearby states. Policies remain fluid, so be sure to check the current policies before planning a trip.
