Ha, you scooped me. I won’t be there, it’ll cost too much in lost wages. Too bad it’s not Saturday.

Kudos to 7S.

I’m not a Bob Nutting fan but I must give credit when it’s due. If not for a meeting today, I would have gone up just to say I did it.

I hope they have a nice turn out.

Watch the 7Springs site video about today’s skiing. Then click on the web cam and check out the slope and lift line.
Sure looks like mid-winter…congrats to 7Springs for pulling off an advertising coup, to skiers/boarders delight!

Who went? I am jealous! What fun!

Lots of pics on the Seven Springs FB Page. National coverage on TV yesterday morning, front page of the Washington Post today … definitely a good day for the marketing folks.

A Baltimore meteorologist drove up to Seven Springs early Mon morning, arrived around 9:30am, measured the snow, took some video, did a little reporting, and drove home. He brought some snow home for his sons. Now that’s a snow lover!

Here’s the scoop on how they managed to get open for today. There is also a video of his arrival at Seven Springs.
"But after a burst of heavy snow in the afternoon, the Director of Ski Patrol Dick Barron thought it was worth a try. The crew sent a groomer up one of the trails, and the snow held. After a few test runs, the race was on to round up enough people to work the chair lifts, patrol, and grooming. They did it."

Looking at the webcam, looks like the skiing lasted only until about 1pm. Temps in the 40’s melted the 10 inch base pretty fast with folks sliding on it.

Yes pretty nice turnout. The hotdogs were free, beer was cheap, snow was pretty good for spring.

I read as far as where they groomed it. No way of knowing without being there if they groomed all that they opened. Odds are very long that anything open was left in its natural state. That’s why I went to Whitegrass.
