Allegheny Mnts. Gathering(PA, MD, OH,VA,WVA) poll

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, here is my attempt at a poll to try to start setting up a Allegheny Mnts. Gathering. Hopefully we will see when and where work out best for the greatest number of people.

First of all, bump. Secondly, I'm hoping that by offering so many choices that when enough people vote one or two emerge as clear favorites. Regardless, it gets me thinking about hitting the slopes rather instead of how boring work is...

IMHO its best to meet early in the season on a not so busy weekend, somewhere conveneint / cenrally located, and with reliable conditions.

Of the resorts listed I think the best targets (in no particular order) are:

T-line
7Springs
Wisp

In the close but no cigar category are:
Snowshoe (too far)
Cannan (because no one wants to go there, yet)
Roundtop (because no one wants to go there, except me)
Blue Knob (since its too unreliable for snow conditions, and there is still considerable question if they will be able to open fully this season, Link 1, Link 2, Link 3)
Liberty (too small, not centrally located)
Whitetail (not centrally located)

Considering the absolute CRAP weather we have in store for weeks to come...7S fits that bill the best. Nobody in the state/area has better snowmaking than 7S. As long as the temps cooperate, it the most logical choice since it's more central than Snowshoe. None of the smaller hills mentioned can produce the white stuff on par with 7S if the natural goods don't fall.

I'm still up for another location at a later date, but 7S for a December (yeah right) or early January meet makes the most sense for coverage with the dismal winter we're starting to see.
