Seven Springs Mountain Resort announced Tuesday that it will acquire nearby rival Hidden Valley Resort from local developer The Buncher Co. for an undisclosed price.
“Both resorts are strong and important establishments with long histories and bright futures. We will work to ensure that both Hidden Valley and Seven Springs grow and thrive as family destinations,” Bob Nutting, president of Seven Springs, said in a statement.

Nutting, who is also owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates, said Seven Springs would invest in improvements to Hidden Valley. The 1,200-acre Hidden Valley Resort includes 29 ski slopes and trails, as well as an 18-hole golf course.
The two resorts are about 13 miles apart.
Buncher said in a statement it would continue to concentrate on its core businesses, including real estate developments in Pittsburgh and six surrounding counties.
