Seven Springs offers both telemark lessons and tele rentals. (Call ahead to book a tele lesson. I believe Jim Kapp is the tele instructor.)
Also, check out the Appalachian Telemark Organization (ATA web page
) for Western Pa. tele info. The group does most of its skiing at Seven Springs.
The group will be hosting Telepalooza at Seven Springs on Feb. 4th and 5th. Clinics (including backcountry), up/down race, demos, food/drink/prizes, etc.
I strongly recommend tele. I started about 8 years ago to bring some excitement back to skiing at local resorts. It worked -- I still have a pair of downhill boards, but I haven't used them in about 5 years.
