    I agree with above. People need to be aware of how bad this place has become. It’s time for us to start educating the “tourists” about hidden valley.

    Seven springs is nowhere near as busy as it use to be. Actually heard a rumor from a friend that works at valley who was told that so far they have well over 2000 new pass holders (told me that 2 days after they went on sale). And that number is getting bigger daily. If its that high at valley imagine what its like at wisp or blue knob. As i said before it would not surprise me if they went bankrupt for the winter months. It takes MILiONS to build a park structure such as theirs and if there arent enough paying customers they have 2 choices go bankrupt or get rid of the parks. After what we have seen has been prioritized this season i think the answer to that question is pretty obvious. Probably wont happen next season but it will in the near future.

    Ps. I have not been to a pirates game in 10 years

    To respond to the comment above, its likely that anyone, myself included, who posts on a message board is wasting their time.

    That said, getting the word out that Seven Springs has become a second rate place to ski may benefit others who may contemplating spending hundreds or thousands of hard earned dollars on a visit to the resort. For the record Im also a former season ticket holder of the Pirates. I work across the street from PNC Park and wont walk through the gates even when offered a free ticket (which happens often) Ive held a season pass at Seven Springs for more than 30 years and this year will be my last.

    Yes the place is still busy on weekends but I know of plenty of frustrated customers who are now headed elsewhere. Unlike baseball fans, skiers have other options.

    For that minute sliver of the populations who wants a 22 half pipe, go immediately to Seven Springs. Youll have the half pipe to yourself.

    Everyone complaining about how nutting runs his resort and threatening to go to another resort are wasting time. Nutting is running his resort just as planned. A money maker. This resort is not going bankrupt, on the contrary, it is making huge money. Yes the food is terrible, snow making terrible and only run to make snow for terrain parks, lifts not running on busy weekends (i could go on) but have you ever noticed it is always packed. He will never sell, and a few weekend skiers going elsewhere will not effect nutting one way or another. The people that complain most likely still go to pirate games.

    This used to be such a nice mountain. now its a poorly maintained, over priced ice rink with rocks dirt and beer cans all over it. only decent part of this mountain is the parks. I cannot wait to see this place go bankrupt so nutting will sell, but until then i’m Hidden Valley bound!!!

    I am so sad to see how poorly this resort is run now. It breaks my heart I have skied this mountain all my life and Bob has ruined it. They closed the mountain at 6 pm on one of the best days of the season. I have skied through rain from snow makers. Horrible grooming and not enough chairs open to get around the mountain. I don’t know who is advising on how to run the mountain, but they should be fired. I hate to do it but I will be skiing at Hidden Valley next year. I have heard raves about the snowmaking and grooming they are doing. Hopefully you don’t get involved there. You need to hire some good advisers PLEASE!

    As others have mentioned, 7S seems totally snowboarder focused at this point. That half-pipe looks Olympic-grade, as far as I can tell. Not much else there is. Another way that Snowshoe is eating 7S’s lunch is food. The food at 7S is borderline inedible, and ridiculously expensive. Had lunch at the Foggy Goggle last week — a turkey sandwich and two beers: $35 after tip. I don’t pick ski resorts based on food, but when I went back today, I stashed my lunch and a couple of craft beers in the car. It’s a pain in the ass to hike back to the car, but it’s not even about the money; The turkey sandwich I brought was made with fresh bread instead of a “pretzel roll” that tasted like it was taken out of the freezer and microwaved. Regardless, every time I go to 7S I feel like I’m overpaying for everything, and it’s pretty clear that with skis on, I’m not their priority.

    One benefit of declining attendance: shorter lift lines.

    Rode up on the North Face today with a guy that works at 7 Springs on the snow making crew.He pointed out the additional guns on the top of North Face as well as the water pipe that feeds them is new going from a 4” to an 8” pipe. Definitely better quality snow on the top of the usually very icy first pitch on North Face. Keep up the improvements.

    Rant from former season pass holder…

    Where are all the cars Bob!

    I skied 7S on Thursday Feb 14, where has everyone gone Mr. Nutting?
    On only my 2nd day trip this season to 7S, driving from Wheeling Wv, I pulled into the parking lot on North Face at 10am, being a bit late for first tracks, I was worried I would have to hike a bit from my car, but no, I was able to park right in the front row! Where are all the cars?, where are all the people wanting for first tracks?. This is the middle of Winter, nearly a blue bird day with wonderful new soft groomed snow all over the slopes every where you looked and every where I skied!

    I remember in years past, on a wonderful day like this, people would play hooky from work or school just to be here. And the midweek pass holders would be out in droves. Again I ask, “Where are all the cars Bob?”

    Bob, I noticed your not running Tyrol lift midweek, or was it just broken down? Did the men that run the lift not come to work that day? I wonder Bob, you know its very difficult to ski the Front Face with just Avalanche lift running, Seems like the resort is lacking in skier service.

    Oh wait, I did notice one lonely skier taken advantage of the large piles of snow you have made on Alpine Meadows, he seemed quite happy with all that effort you made there, all by himself. For myself, I could only think of the lack of base I seen on Giant Steps and Gunner, It didn’t look like the base could survive much of a spring melt.

    Again I ask, where are all the cars Bob?

    Bob, I want you to watch Facebook this week, Snowshoe’s Facebook page to be exact. On the 19th of February they are announcing a killer season pass deal!.

    Bob, I think those hillbillies from Southern West Virginia have figured it out. Lower the price of admission to play on the snow and more people will come, more people will fill the parking lot, more people will consume more food and drinks. More people staying at the hotel. More lifts will needed to run, because there is more people on the slopes.

    Bob, I’m sorry I couldn’t afford your season pass this year. In years pass, I was able to afford both your season pass and Snowshoe’s season pass. Things being hard these days, I made the choice of Snowshoes season pass, the early purchase deal.

    Bob, I hope you understand…..

    ” Bob you need to find someone to help you. You know nothing about skiers”

    As a homeowner at 7S I could not agree more. For all the “improvements” made since the Nuttings took over none have have improved the experience for regular skiers (unless you like parks/rails). They’re going backwards fast. No one manages the liftlines except for the Polar Bear and those folks seem to despise customers. HV now has better snowmaking equipment but 7S doesnt even utilize the antiquated equopment they have. Conditions are great this week due to mother nature. Once our normal cycle of cold/warm returns their conditions will again fall far behind Hidden Valley.

    I could not believe how under staffed this mountain was. They had lift lines like you would not believe and lifts not opperating. They had nobody managing the long lift lines. i had to wait over 45 minutes for a bus to the parking lots.The food here is terrible. I had a turkey hogie that felt like a wet sock. I ate at Helen’s and could not believe how poor the food quality was and the portions or I should say lack of . The snow was great thanks to the man upstairs but I will not take my family to this over priced under staffed mountains ever again. I will look to go to Holiday Valley or Snow Shoe. Bob you need to find someone to help you. You know nothing about skiers.

    Pretty crazy (in a good way) at 7Springs this weekend.

    First there was Telepaloozia for the free heel crowd with instructions and races including a wild up hill / down hill venue with a Le Mans style start and mixed up hidden skis. Very entertaining!

    Second there was a USSA A (ECS) & B (EQS) Mogul event (Mogul Smackdown) moved from Alpine Meadow to Gunnar slope (quicker lift service via 6 pack and better pitch for the A athletes). Even with the lousy weather every is experiencing 7S pulled it off (resorts in more NE locations floundered and had issues). Pretty impressive to watch kids age 7 and up bumping and jumping.

    Well done 7S!

    A USSA A (ECS) & B (EQS) mogul event will be held at 7Springs over the January 28 & 29th weekend.
    The event will be run single line (no dual format) at this time on Alpine Meadow slope - right outside the Yurt and next to the new Olympic size Superpipe!
    All competitors required to have a valid USSA competitors card and wear a helmet.
    USSA rules and requirements can be found at http://www.ussa.org .
    More details will be post on http://www.easternfreestyle.org/ and http://www.7springs.com as they come available.
    A super big thank you goes out to 7Springs management for stepping in and making this happen. This will be the most southern USSA event held in the East.

    I think only a “B” event will be held at the resort for the little bumpers via the Alipne race club (WPSC?).
    It would be nice to have a more local A of us but I doubt the Springs has a slope rated for a real A.
