i'm going to 7 springs this weekend and i'm not sure if i should rent skiis at like, ski chalet, or rent them at 7 springs. what do you think would be cheaper and who would have better quality? i heard ski chalet was expensive...also, how long does it usually take to 7 springs from d.c.?
Good luck and have fun - Seven Springs is one of my favorite local areas - lots of terrain and friendly folks. BTW, it's also cheaper to get a hotel in Somerset than on the resort itself - I stayed at a HoJo's a couple of years back for $50.00 a night.
As far as renting, I would definitely recommend Ski Chalet.
ski chalet rentals = 29/weekend for good skis/boots/poles
7Springs = 76/weekend for fair gear
Also, ski chalet lets you apply rental fees toward equipment purchases, so the $$ is well spent. The selection is good, they even have demos, and the people are nice.
