Preparing For Your Trip

Welcome Back to Seven Springs! Tips for making the most of your time on the mountain this winter

  • Seven Springs offers a free shuttle service among its parking lots so no need to walk from the lot to the ski lodge! Several shuttles travel the property throughout the day so you won’t have to wait long.
  •  Arrive early! After parking, you will need to plan some time to travel to the ski lodge, get dressed, pick up your lift ticket and rental equipment, if needed. We recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before the start of a lesson or 60 minutes prior if you are picking up rentals.
  • Know your limits and have fun! Our mountain offers terrain for all skill levels. Be sure to check out the trail map and create a plan before you hop on a chair. Centrally located, the Polar Bear Express will give you access to a variety of slopes, trails, and parks.
  • Dress for the occasion. Just because it isn’t cold and snowy at your house doesn’t mean you should skip on the jacket. We make snow at every opportunity, so don’t forget proper eye protection, moisture wicking pants, and warm gloves!
  • Visit us during the week! Our busiest days are on the weekends and holidays. Maximize your time and skip the crowds by planning your trip during the week.
  • Seven Springs will join the Epic Mix app next season.  In the meantime, please follow the resort’s social channels for mountain operation updates.

I want to have lunch with a big group, is it okay if I save a bunch of tables?

It depends, but we, and a lot of the other guests on the mountain, would really prefer you do not save tables so that those who are looking to sit can find a place to enjoy their lunch. If you want to eat with a big group all together, we recommend trying before noon or after 1:30 PM.

Last year you told me I had to leave after 45 minutes, is that still true?

Thankfully we are in a different place than last year and required table time limits are no longer in effect. However, out of respect for other guests, we do ask you to be thoughtful and limit your time at the table, especially during peak times and holidays. Go ride!

When is the best time to eat lunch?

When you're hungry! But also, to get the most out of your day, consider dining outside of our peak hours of 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM. We always recommend an early start, an early lunch (11:00 is awesome), and an early apres.
