Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Drone Policy

Out of safety concerns for our guests, employees and resort property, as well as concerns for individual privacy, Seven Springs Mountain Resort (Seven Springs) prohibits the operation of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) or drones without the written authorization from Seven Springs. This prohibition includes drones used for any purpose whatsoever, whether filming or videotaping or commercial or personal purposes or by media.

This prohibition extends to any drone launched or operated from Resort property, as well as drones launched from private property outside of the Resort but flying within Resort boundaries and/or above Resort facilities, both anywhere on the mountain or around the resort base area.

If drone use is authorized by the Resort for any event, such use must be in accordance with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules and regulations – The FAA Summary of Small Unmanned Aircraft Rule (Part 107).
