SEVEN SPRINGS (KDKA) – The golf course at Seven Springs is closed and the slopes, also closed for the winter, are snow-covered once again.

By 9 a.m., the ski resort destination had six inches of snow from a late April snow storm. They were expected to get another six inches by the end of the day.

“We’ve had several snow falls in the past history here at Seven Springs in April, but this is also quite a large one,” said Dick Barron, Director of Ski Operations.

Due to the high demand, one chairlift and a couple of the trails will be open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

Oddly enough, the latest snowfall today added to the off-season totals, which has now almost surpassed the amount of snow Seven Springs had during their entire regular ski season.

Barron said the numbers were disappointing.

“We only had a total of 64 inches of natural snow this past winter, which is an all-time low.  Normally we’ll have 130 to 200 inches of snow,” Barron said.

While the golf carts and course were snow-covered Monday, the resort was hopeful that everything would be back to normal operations by this weekend.
