seven springs mountain resort: Emerald Ash Borer Beetle - 06/24/09 03:07 PM
They are more commonly referred to as EAB. Why are we writing about them? Have you seen the billboards that say, "I promise not to move firewood?" They started appearing locally a few months back and made us wonder, "What's behind that unusual message?" 
Shortly after that we started to notice purple hanging boxes in the trees. Turns out they are traps set only in Ash trees to determine if the EAB is here. In fact there's one on County Line road as you're headed up to Seven Springs on the right and several on Rt 31.
We owe all of … (0 comments)

Fishermen friends have shared stories about the water running thigh high, not anymore. American Rivers (a Washington DC non profit) has listed this Pennsylvania treasure a seven out of ten in "America's Most Endangered Rivers in 2009."  This year's edition highlights missing safeguards that they feel are necessary to protect this creek from "excessive water withdrawals for development and energy extraction."

There is an unbelievable amount of attention being focused on where we call home.

seven springs mountain resort: PA Stability - 04/08/09 04:55 PM
 
Given this economy we decided to revisit where our resort home owners reside full time. Checking on their area of primary residence give us (and you), insight into the stability of their livelihood and likeliness of needing to sell a second home.  Pennsylvania still lays claim to almost 80% of the home owners at both Hidden Valley and Seven Springs.
The areas surrounding Pittsburgh came in with the most concentrated numbers. So how stable is our area? From the Bureau of Labor Statistics comes a graph showing monthly average unemployment rates for all of the states through Feb 2009.  According … (0 comments)

seven springs mountain resort: Corporate America Arrives At Seven Springs - 04/01/09 12:10 PM
Sorry, it's NOT an April Fools Joke. It's time to face the fact. The old work environment of days past, where families, not just individuals, worked their entire lives at the resort, those days are gone. Where you could walk down any hall way, sit in any bar stool or dining room chair, and greet employees by their first name and they knew you, your family, and what you liked.
Progress on major financial investments continues. The foundation for the Lodge at the Sporting Clays center has been poured. The Spa is soon to open.  Yet March saw major employee cutbacks … (3 comments)
