The Bottom Line:

Seven Springs is a popular Pennsylvania ski resort and the vertical is fairly small, so even with 10 chair lifts, including two high-speed 6 person chairlifts, the lift-lines can get very crowded on the weekends. Despite having only a few very challenging runs, the variety of terrain makes it a great resort for Mom, Dad, and the kids due to its commitment to service, off-hill activities and family programs. Rated the #1 ski resort in the Mid-Atlantic by SKI Magazine.
