Area ski and snowboard enthusiasts can enjoy Seven Springs Mountain Resort and Hidden Valley Resort in a new manner this winter with The Highlands Pass and The Highlands Ticket.
The two options provide access to both resorts, which feature 64 slopes and trails and 10 terrain parks on 395 acres of skiable terrain.
The Highlands Pass features unlimited skiing and snowboarding at both resorts during the 2013-14 season. Existing Seven Springs and Hidden Valley passholders can upgrade to the pass for $50 and $100, respectively. For those without a current season pass, the cost is $599.
The Highlands Ticket will be available for purchase during weekends this winter. This ticket provides unlimited skiing or snowboarding at both resorts, from 9 a.m. Friday through closing that Sunday, and starts at $163.
"The Highlands Pass provides our skiers and snowboarders with the opportunity to experience two distinct mountains throughout the winter," said Eric Mauck, the resorts' CEO. "Guests of both resorts now have easier access to twice as much terrain in the Laurel Highlands.
"The Highlands Ticket is just one example of package offerings at both resorts to draw even more guests to the Laurel Highlands," Mauck added. "By offering one vacation at two resort destinations, our hope is to draw even more visitors from regional markets such as Washington, D.C. and Baltimore to our region and lengthen the time they stay."
