Question Seven Springs PA 3.11.11

Was looking to roll out there tomorrow. They may have 3-6 inches on the way following todays's heavy rain. Any insight on what to expect? We're getting about 2" of rain out here BearCreek is....bare and Blue mountain just might not have much to offer when they open back up tomorrow so im trying to expand my options.

just getting to this late but just in case someone does a search for this resort, maybe they will find this...

7 springs is overpriced unless you really want to try your hand at a super pipe. They have some nice parks but no lifts (to my memory) specially serving the park areas. They also have super jumps but be careful on the the last one, if you don't turn immediately after landing you will be in the parking lot.

7 springs at this time of the year is icy unless we receive new snow. This year has been horrible. At best you will be looking at groomed granular possibly wet granular.

They are shutting down for the season.

As for the slopes themselves and riding them. I find them a bit too steep and unpredictable on the front face. Nothing like blasting down a hill and nailing a giant sheet of ice followed by a large pile of heavy granular at the end. The north face seems to have more to offer after you figure out which slopes were groomed the best. They have a couple nice longer trails to play around on.

My biggest complain with 7 springs is the crowd. Even on the weekday, you park so far away, sometimes have to be bused in. And there are too many slopes that funnel into one small trail on the front face. Last time I was there was an icy thursday, nothing special going on like a holiday or anything, and at about 2pm I was shoulder to shoulder carefully navigating to the end of the trail to where it opens up to a slope to enjoy some freedom from other people. WAY too close and out of control for my liking.

I do like the longer slopes of 7 springs and the speed lifts, the bars and places to eat, things to do etc, but if you want some peace and a bit less crazy of an experience, goto hidden valley. The only issue is the slopes are short. They have a north face but it's often closed early or closed for good late season. Long couple runs and some areas to cat trails to practice board manuvers until you get to carve your way down .
