It’s baaaaaack.

Well, I don’t really remember it, but I know I’ve been there as a kid. Anyways, another place to ski this winter!

 

Introducing our new Trail Map!

Bob Nutting, owner of Seven Springs and Hidden Valley (along with the Pirates), leased the vintage Laurel Mountain back in 2008, part of the PA DCNR’s Laurel Mountain State Park near Latrobe. Finally, in early 2015, plans went out to bid and people got excited. Construction began and it looks like a brand new high speed quad is going to start turning and the mountain will be open to skiers and riders after a 10+ year hiatus once more this season.

LET’S BREAK IT DOWN:

Slopes – Wildcat is one of 13 open slopes and trails, clocking in as the mountain’s steepest slope. It is also the steepest ski slope in the state of Pennsylvania, at 60% grade.

 

Ski Capital of Pennsylvania.

Price – And, if you’re not looking to break the bank at Springs, save $20 on Lift Tickets and probably the crowds (until people realize it’s there – maybe they already do) with a $53 weekend pass, $38 during the week. Season passes for Laurel Mountain are available

It will also be part of the Resort Swap with Seven Springs, Hidden Valley, Wisp Resort, Snowshoe Mountain Resort and Blue Knob Resort. GAH!

Fun Fall Fact – apparently there is a 125-mile / 4-hour loop through Laurel Hill, Laurel Mountain, Laurel Ridge, Laurel Summit  and Linn Run state parks. WHAT?! I’m going.

Learn More – Marketing’s going vintage a la 2005 on skilaurelmountain.com. Just kidding, here’s the Seven Springs run site: laurelmountainski.com – that’s better! If you can’t wait, check out the State Park.

Here’s to more ski days this year!

 

Throwback to the Laurel House in 1965. Only a few more months until the 2016-2017 Season!
