FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NOVEMBER 22, 2021
SNOWMAKING OPERATIONS HAVE BEGUN
AT SEVEN SPRINGS AND HIDDEN VALLEY RESORTS
  
WHAT: Snowmaking is officially underway at Seven Springs and Hidden Valley resorts! The arrival of cold temperatures allowed the snowmaking teams to turn on the snowmaking systems with the intent of running continuously for as long as conditions allow.
 
As part of Seven Springs’ commitment to providing skiers and snowboarders with a fantastic on-snow experience, the resort has undertaken a major improvement project and proudly announces the installation of a new chairlift for the season! 

This state-of-the-art Doppelmayr Alpen Star fixed grip quad chairlift will replace the existing, venerable Avalanche lift.
 
The New Avalanche Lift will increase uphill capacity from 1800 to 2400 people per hour and will unload closer to the top of Tyrol Chairlift, allowing for better access to Stowe Slope and Trail. (No more plodding across the top to get back to the lodge!) It will feature 7 towers, 88 chairs and a 200 horsepower electric motor.  The lift will be 1,956 feet in length from loading station to unloading station and will cover 492 vertical feet.
 
"Our new Doppelmayr chairlift will greatly improve our guest experience on the front face of the mountain allowing for many more runs each day," said Joel Rerko, Seven Springs Director of Mountain Operations. "Travel time will now be only 4 Minutes, and 21 Seconds to the top; less time on the lift and shorter lift lines equal more time on the snow! We continue to be committed to our season passholders, homeowners and growing the sport as a whole. After an incredible winter last year, we cannot wait to unveil it on opening day!”
 
In addition, Seven Springs has added brand new HKD tower guns to kick off the 2021-2022 winter season.
 
WHEN: The snowguns were turned on at Seven Springs at 2:15 p.m. today, Hidden Valley at 3:20 p.m. today. The crews will continue to make snow for as long as conditions allow.
 
The opening day for the resorts will be announced soon.
