Laurel Mountain news

Barring any more unforeseen delays, the state-owned Laurel Mountain ski area that overlooks the picturesque Ligonier Valley in Westmoreland County will be almost 15 percent larger when it opens for the 2016-2017 season.
The increase in size — from 63 acres to 72 acres — will be the result of re-grading and widening two intermediate trails, Innsbruck and Lower Broadway, and doing the same to the appropriately named Deer Path.
