7 Springs

I was looking at heading up there at the begining of March. Never been there before. Is it nice?

It is nice and fun, both during the day and after the riding. Consider, also, snowshoe in WV. It might be a little closer for you.

Good times can be had at 7 Springs. Again, look into Snowshoe, too. Looks like they have a decent Apres village. They have the same amount of acreage, but twice the top-to-bottom vert. Looks like their snow base is comperable to 7Springs. Can't say I've ever been to snowshoe, but I have heard good things.

...unlike anyother major resort?

There's plenty to do at Seven Springs besdies snowboard. It's not really close to anything- as in, you have to drive 20+ miles to get anywhere. But they have all kinds of shit I've never seen the need to use: bowling alley, arcade, pool, sauna, several bars and restaurants, a number of ski shops, etc., etc. There's also snowmobiling if you want to pay $80/half hour.

Snow or sun, not rain
I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.

We were kind of just looking for somewhere nice to go towards the end of the season. The only thing about snowshoe is we having peope from Cleveland coming too so we are trying not to make them drive too far.

Well then, you never said that! Springs is a good time, for sure. Early Morning riding to get fresh tracks, afternoon at the Goggle, evening and night silly riding (the Goggle will do that to you), and dancing/socializing while still in your gear till 2am, only to do it again the next day........ohh how I miss my days at 7Springs!

BTW, the biggest snowfall I've ever experienced was at 7Springs in 2003, I believe. We got 45 inches of snow between Friday and Monday. It was absolutely silly, silly, silly!
