7 Springs in PA

Not sure if there was a review on 7 Springs in PA, but I would give it a 7 out of 10. There is a nice park, but sometimes there are 1000 people falling in front of you and the damn employees constantly try to sell you lessons.

maybe b/c i was there mid-week during the valentines snow storm... but i loved it there. i gave it 12/10, though i'm used to a few ice slopes.

1st experience of massive pow on the rear mtn. landed my first 180s there aswell. the 6 person speed lift was great. plus i stayed the night all inclusive for like $50 with a coupon in the mail. so worth the 3 hour trip for me.

yeah, i'd have to rate it a 8 for a local hill. it's definitely not a mountain, but it snows the most natty snow that i've seen out of the local hills i've been to in the area (liberty, whitetail). despite it's lack of vert, it makes up for it in fun level...it's just a fun hill to fuck around on.

I concur that for under 5 hours away Springs is prety much the best your gunna get. Wisp was kinda a let down I was hoping for more. But yea like NRG said what it lacks in vertical rise it makes up for in fun. There are alot of trails that are a blast and tend to have fun things to do off the sides of the trails. For example on North Face Slope on the left abotu 3/4 of the way down there is a realatively steep incline; if you take Giant Boulder Slope and then Little Boulder Trail you have a straight shot at the top of that incline. There is a small line of like sapling trees that you have to go inbetween, but you can build a little lip or just huck it off the edge and us the incline as you transistion, me and some of my friends did that a couple years ago when we went up. Throwing nice slow 180s it was nice.

4 hours to 7springs from south dirty jerz doesnt sound bad. i've never been there so i cant compare but the poconos should be about that or less right? where do you usually ride?

Are you just talking a day of riding there or multiple days?
