1. Depends on the snow, usually sometime in march but most mid Atlantic are staying open until April this year.
2. Yes, all features are open.
3. Yes, they blow when they need to but this year they have a deeper base than most resorts out west. They don't blow if mother nature can keep up and this year has been spectacular.

7springs and Snowshoe are the best resorts in the east this side of Vermont

Would this place be worth it to make a weekend out of coming from Philly?

This is a tough one. First it would depend on when you are going.....weekends get pretty crowded. Personally, I live in bucks county and I'd rather just drive up to Vermont than head out to 7 springs. The drive is an extra 2-3 hours, but the terrain is just so much bigger. It also looks like New England might get some snow with the next cycle that comes through.

That being said, if you are hell-bent on 7Springs (it was one of my learning mountains as I lived in that area till I was about 25) think of it as Camelback times almost two. The elevation isn't much more (actually may be a few feet less) and the terrain is about 260 acres, compared to 180 at Camel. There are some nice tree runs and all sorts of terrain/pipe features. Plus, the party atmosphere (if you are of-age) is second-to-none in the mid-atlantic.
