Seven Springs Mountain Rumored To Be Sold

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

The suitor is said to be the Talisker Corp., owner of The Canyons in Utah.  An official announcement is said to be forthcoming, this from DCSkier snowsmith in this post: Breaking News! Seven Springs Sold.  I heard the rumors but this is the first time the suitor has been named.

This could be good news if the new owner looks to update some lifts, expand terrain, and - gasp - do something with Laurel Mountain (all stuff mentioned in the thread linked above). Someone mentioned that when Talisker Corp. bought the Canyons the ticket prices went up. I wonder if this would be an issue at the Springs. For a Midwest/Mid-Atlantic resort, I have trouble seeing how the ticket prices could go up any more - they're already on par with some of the Utah resorts (more in some cases) . . . and we're talking Pennsylvania here. We have 750 feet of "vertical" . . .

Talisker Corp. is based in Toronto.   We have laid down some serious cash at the Canyons and are the backers of the proposed "SkiLink" to connect Canyons with Solitude.   Maybe they will build a SkiLink between the Springs and Laurel!

I am told from an inside source that Seven Springs is not for sale and that the person who passed along the rumor has since retracted.

Thank you nolo for the follow up. As I said, there have been rumors about a pending sale. It takes inquiries from legitimate media to get official statements.  Again, thanks nolo for your inquiry. Scott Smith, owner of DCSki.com has contacted Seven Springs and he has pulled  the post I linked here.Sorry for my zeal in posting this rumor. If it were true it would have been a game changer for the PA ski industry.

Well, it was fun to speculate . . . even for a short time.
