Updated:CHAMPION, Pa. —
Seven Springs Mountain Resort in southwestern Pennsylvania will stay open for an extra week of skiing, snowboarding and tubing thanks to spring snows earlier this month.
The resort says in a statement that the latest storm dumped nearly two feet of snow on its slopes about 45 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The resort has gotten 50 inches of snow in March, 20 inches shy of the March record set in 1996 when the resort offered skiing and snowboarding through April 14, its latest date ever.
This year, the resort plans to offer snow sports through Sunday, April 7. Previously, the resort had planned to close by the beginning of the month.
