Vail Resorts has agreed to acquire Seven Springs Mountain Resort in a deal valued at roughly $125 million.

“We have been focused on acquiring resorts near major metropolitan areas,” said Vail Resorts CEO Kristen Lynch.

  • The deal includes Hidden Valley Resort and the operations of Laurel Mountain Ski Area in Pennsylvania.
  • Vail will acquire all assets related to the mountain operations of the resorts, including ski areas, a hotel, lodging, and a conference center.
  • The transaction is expected to close this winter, with operations continuing in ordinary fashion for the 2021-22 season.

In September, the company announced a $315 million-to-$325 million capital plan to install 19 new chairlifts across 14 resorts in an effort to improve guest experiences for the 2022-23 season.

Vail Resorts — which operates 37 mountain resorts and ski areas — generated $175.6 million in revenue in fiscal Q1 2022, up from $43.8 million for the same period last year.
