Northeast of Pittsburgh near Champion in the Laurel Highlands, the Seven Springs Resort ski area has 35 runs spread over 285 acres that are served by 10 lifts with a maximum vertical descent of 750 feet. The average annual snowfall is over 135 inches. Seven Springs is best known to snowboarders for its seven terrain parks that host national and international events on the East Coast of the US. But, keep in mind, it takes a lot of snow to open all these parks, so make sure to check ahead so see which ones are really open. The progression-style terrain parks include over 125 features such as rails, boxes and wall rides, along with an Olympic-sized Superpipe with 22 foot walls. Make sure to check The Streets terrain park area. Seven Springs has recently added about 400 feet of new steel features into their parks.
After a day of shredding, try the The Foggy Goggle and then the Bavarian Lounge for some apres ski action.
