If you think Seven Springs is solely a winter destination, think again. This popular ski resort nestled in the heart of the Laurel Highlands offers plenty of summer fun for the entire family. Whether you’re looking for a day trip or a week long vacation, you won’t run out of things to do, I promise! Here’s just a glimpse of the activities you’ll find at Seven Springs, but be sure to check out their website for more information on how to plan the trip that works best for your family.
The Alpine Slide
Hours: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily Memorial weekend through Labor day
Saturday & Sunday through Autumnfest
Price: $8 per ride
$35 for 5 rides
The Alpine Slide is by far my favorite thing to do at Seven Springs. After enjoying a chairlift ride to the top of ski slope, you’ll get in your two-wheeled sled for a twisting and turning trek down the 1,980 ft. slope. And don’t worry about the speed, since you can control how fast you’re descending with a handle brake. After you go down once, I bet you’ll want to try it again.
Price: Mon – Fri: $47 – $72
Sat – Sun: $47 – $77

After spending the whole day trying out new adventures, you might just need an evening full of rest and relaxation; look no farther than the resort’s Trillium Spa.
