Interior Mid-Atlantic Gathering-7Springs? - Page 2

post #31 of 50
I will try to make it. Is the Feb 23/24 date firm?

The dates have been getting a good response. The consensus seems to be 7 Springs but I'll ask again to consider Blue Knob. A lot of participant past have been strong skiers and Blue Knob offers more challenge but still has good intermediate terrain and an excellent, long novice trail as well. Perhaps we should poll for venue?

Dates are good for me. We did have a good time at 7 springs last year, caught it on a really great day...........but i'm with ya on liking a trip to Blue Knob ski good or eat wood.

I would consider either.
With a four-plus hour drive it all depends on how things look though.

I've read the thread and find a few with a preference for Blue Knob (my preference also), maybe one for 7Springs, most indifferent. Should we take a poll or just meet at the top of Blue Knob at 8:30 February 23?

Really either works for me as well. B-K only adds an hour to my drive, so that's no big deal. Actually, I've never been to B-K, so that would make for an interesting time exploring new terrain.

I've posted a poll to determine the Interior Mid-Atlantic Gathering location:

Seven Springs or Blue Knob?
post #38 of 50
I voted for the Knob. They have a 6 tickets for $195 deal. You can split with friends. $32.50 each.
post #39 of 50
The 6 tickets for $195 is a buy-in-advance deal. We have to buy them by 12/24.

I'm in for 23/24.

The poll is overwhelming in favor of Blue Knob. I think we should call it and make it official. We have until December 24 to but tickets. I'll make some calls. Who needs lodging?

Crashing at the lodge gives us access to the hot tub, sauna, etc:

The facilities there are pretty nice, actually.

Hey guys, new to the boards and I live in NoVa (Fairfax), would love to meet up with skiers anywhere close to here. If there is a decent amount of folks from DC, would it be an idea to meet up and do some planning over some drinks?

new member here as well from the Cleveland area. I could manage either 7-Springs or Blue Knob most anytime.

I'd be willing to share digs if it's not too dear. I suppose the Quonset hut on the summit that my High School ski club booked in 1970 is no longer an option. Let me know how much for the lodging, lift tickets for two days, and where to send the check. Thanks.

Dress warm and hope for snow. If I do not have duty I will try and attend.
post #47 of 50
Depends on the date, but I would like to attend if I can.
post #48 of 50
Bump . . . How many for lodging? I want to stay at the condos on Saturday night.
post #49 of 50
Count me in for lodging. Were the dates ever solidified?
