We'll be going to 7 Springs, Pennsylvania this season with the children. We've never been there. I have one child in particular who is still very cautious. He is understandably worried about going up a chairlift when he can't see from the bottom that there is an easy way down.
Looking at the 7 Springs trail map at http://www.7springs.com/webimages/trailMap_larger.jpg, for example, lift #1 (Avalanche) on the far left goes above a black slope but has a green run coming off to the left side. My kid may look at that from the bottom and be very reluctant to go up. I am therefore wondering where to start him off when we first get there -- if he freaks out early in the trip it tends to make him even more cautious.
Looking further at the map it looks like lift #3 (Cortina) may be our best bet - it goes over a blue but perhaps the green to the right is obvious enough from the bottom. Can somebody familiar with the area confirm that or provide other suggestions? He'll probably start with the "magic carpet" lift to warm up in any case.
We'll be there for 5 days and he is eager to get better and to try blues, so I'm hoping that by the end of this trip we can get over this hump.
Thanks for any info!
