We make a yearly trip to 7 springs. I've been 4 years in a row now. We usually always go the week before Christmas to get the early season rates.

Last years trip was terrible, we were in a ski-in/ski-out condo but there was not enough snow and we had to walk a couple hundred yards. The three trips previous to that were all really fun. Our first trip, we got about 6-8" of snow one of the nights and it was the best powder day I have ever had on the east coast!

depending on where youre from, you might be better off going to somewhere in wv, timberline or snowshoe, if thats closer, or holiday valley if youre farther north. Blue knob is also a good alternative, not as large or frilly, but it has better (and higher) terrain.

Maybe just cause its my closest spot and ive been there since I was a kid, i find seven springs frustrating. A lot of the areas are super packed, the bottom of most of the main slopes are mobbed with people coming in off the green runs, the snow is pretty spotty and most of the trails are pretty short. It can be pretty expensive for what it is too.

7Springs was OK when Liberty was my home mtn. Actually, I'd go the extra and head for SnowShoe if you can. But now that Angel Fire is my home spot - well, it's all relative!

I think its awesome. I went there with a school trip and even there were no real blacks there was always a jump someone made and the parks are fun.

Hey Indied....Altoona Native, here. Props for the drop of Blue Knob....the wind tunnel of the Northeast, with the gnarliest Extrovert! As for 7Springs, its a good hill to dick around on and the evening activities are a blast. If you are looking to just ride....do a little more of a drive (I am a supporter of Holiday Valley), if you are looking for all-around fun (drinking, riding, drinking, riding, drinking) then 7Springs is a good time. If you are from south jersey, quit bugging your friends...unless there is a Forum Meet at 7springs, just drive north to Killington, Okemo or even Hunter MTN. Relatively same drive and better mtns.
