Springs regular here...

One important difference between Snowshoe and Springs is night skiing - snowshoes does not have lights. They have a smaller resort that you can shuttle to after the slopes close but it's not worth it. Most of springs is open the whole day.

BIG PIECE OF ADVICE - start out on the far side of the North Face (Gunner, Yodler, Giant Steps, etc). These are awesome slopes and are all accessed by a 6pack speed chair. They also have some awesome tree riding - turtle glades - if there is enough snow. This side closes around 4:30 because they have no lights there. Once it shuts down, head over to the front face. Some great slopes over there too but much shorter than North Face.

They have a nice park set up right in front of the Foggy Google (bar). You can watch guys hike up and hit rails and boxes while sipping a cold beverage. Tons of other stuff to do there too - bowling, drinking, swimming, indoor mini golf, drinking, tubing, drinking, arcade and even a couple cool bars to drink at.

They have several parks and large (big mountain) features like groomers and a superpipe with 18' side walls. They also have a small pipe. I think there are 6 different parks there.

Springs also sits just off the PA Turnpike so it should be super easy for your Ohio friends.

If you stop at any Giant Eagle, you can get $10 off any lift ticket.

I went to 7Springs Saturday, 30" of fresh. We were too late for the first chair but it hardly mattered, there were fresh tracks all morning long. The glades on the back side were epic The best tree runs I have ever had on the East Coast.

you cant really go wrong with either place. I think snowshoe and silver creek are much larger than 7 springs. If i had my choice, snowshoe. There is night skiing at the silver creek area.

Anyone know how to get discounted passes for Springs? I would like to go up on Monday - President's day - but it's $60 for the day pass!

I usually go nights and it's usually $29. That's a big hike!

Yeah, I think the Springs base is better than most of the Resorts in New England, at least the southern/central region.
