Renovation

Seven Springs Mountain Resort has undergone several changes. Below is a summary of recent modifications and enhancements.

2007

In the fall of 2007, the hotel at Seven Springs received a full renovation and redecoration. All 418 hotel rooms were planned for refurbishment. Seven Springs chose George Conte Designs of Greensburg, Pennsylvania to perform the complete renovation. The entire rooms were remodeled, with new bedding, carpets, curtains, doors, tables, desks, and chairs. Also new for the renewed hotel is an LCD TV in each room with a multimedia jack for connecting various digital devices.

Another project that was planned by Seven Springs Mountain Resort at the same time was the building of a second high speed six-passenger chairlift serving the Gunnar slope at the North Face. The new chairlift now takes skiers and snowboarders to the top of the mountain in four minutes, in comparison to twelve minutes on the previous chairlift.[4] The Gunnar Express Lift was constructed in place of the Gunnar Triple Chairlift.

Construction for both the hotel and the chairlift were fully completed and open to guests for use in time for the 2007-08 skiing season.

2008

Several projects have arisen for the 2008-09 winter ski season at Seven Springs. Improvements and additions to the slopes and trails and terrain parks are among the many plans made for the resort. Construction for other major projects, including the addition of an outdoor swimming pool and spa facility, have also begun.
