New & Upcoming Enhancements to the Mountain
This summer, Seven Springs invested in energy-efficient snowmaking to help open more terrain earlier in the season and maintain high-quality terrain throughout the season. Projects included new snowmaking pipe, seven new snowmaking stations, and 15 new HKD Viper snowmaking guns on Village Trail to help enable earlier opening of this terrain, 12 new energy-efficient HKD Impulse R5 snow gun towers on Tyrol Slope, and two new Pisten Bully 400 snowcats to enhance the resort’s grooming fleet.
Seven Springs is planning a full roster of events this year, from New Year’s Eve festivities to the return of the Toyota Takeover Weekend, as well as après events and entertainment at the Main Lodge and Foggy Goggle, which has been voted as the Best Apres-Ski Bar in USA Today’s 10Best Reader’s Choice Awards.

Pass & Lift Ticket Information
Guests planning to visit this winter are encouraged to purchase their lift access in advance – whether it is a lift ticket, Epic Day Pass or season pass. Lift tickets will be limited every day, across every resort, during the 2023/24 season in order to preserve the guest experience at each resort. Lift ticket availability will be visible on the lift tickets page of www.7springs.com. If tickets are sold out online, guests will not be able to purchase them at ticket windows. Passes, including Epic Day Passes, and Pass Holder benefit tickets will not be limited. There is also no impact to guests who enroll in ski and ride school lessons that include lift access, or to employee and dependent pass access.
Your Pass, Now on Your Phone with the New My Epic App
New this season, the My Epic app with Mobile Pass and Mobile Lift Tickets is now available to download, allowing guests to use their phone as their ticket to the slopes.
Mobile Pass and Mobile Lift Tickets is a hands-free option for skiers and riders to use at all 36 of Vail Resorts’ owned and operated U.S. resorts for the 2023/24 season, with availability at Whistler Blackcomb to follow in future seasons. It allows guests to buy their pass or lift ticket online, activate it in the new My Epic app, put their phone in their pocket, and get scanned hands-free in the lift line using Bluetooth® technology designed for low energy usage to minimize the impact on a phone’s battery life. This season, to ensure a smooth transition, the company will continue to provide physical cards for passes and lift tickets to all guests. For guests choosing to use Mobile Pass this season, watch this video for some tips.
