Record Snowfall in the Laurel Highlands

Seven Springs Tops In The Country For 48-Hour Snowfall

Seven Springs Mountain Resort just topped the list of ski resorts nationwide for total natural snowfall in a 48-hour time frame!

The list created by OnTheSnow.com places Seven Springs at number one in the country with a natural snowfall total of 27 inches in 48 hours. Since January 1, the popular Laurel Highlands resort has received 35 inches. According to the National Weather Service, Seven Springs is expected to receive 14 – 16 additional inches by the morning of Saturday, January 9, 2010.

“Conditions are phenomenal here at Seven Springs,” added Dick Barron, Director of Ski Operations. “This winter has been shaping up to be one for the record books as it’s been quite some time since we have seen a winter like this.”

The abundance of snow is also allowing for construction and snowmaking for the creation of the resort’s Superpipe, which is ranked number one on the East Coast by Transworld Snowboarding. This project is coming along smoothly and the pipe could be open by month’s end.

Telepalooza Jan 30/31 at Seven Springs PA

Telepalooza Telemark Ski Event is the Largest in the Mid-Atlantic for the Eighth Year Running.

January 30 and 31st 2010

Seven Springs, PA

Telepalooza, a weekend gathering of telemark or “free heel” skiers is being held at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Seven Springs, PA.

The event features two days of races, lessons, prizes, food, beverage and fun. The photos above show founder Jim “Kapper” Kapp giving tips to those attending, Robert “Wags” Wagner at the registration desk, and the next generation at rest after a long tele day.

This is the eighth year the Appalachian Telemark Association (ATA) has sponsored Telepalooza and it is anticipated to be bigger and better than ever. 

This multi-day, multi-event, multi-fun festival celebrates “free heel” or telemark skiing, a style that originated in Norway.

Telemark skiing is the predecessor of today’s downhill skiing and is experiencing a resurgence of interest.  The skis are similar to downhill, yet the bindings and boots allow the boot heal to come off the ski.

There will be lessons for children and adults, from beginner through expert from certified instructors.  Children sixteen and under are free and discounted lift tickets are available.  Demo equipment is available from Karhu, K2 and Garmont.  Prizes awarded from great producers such as Cloudveil, Kahru, Leki and more.

The price for two days is $99 and $79 for a single day (Saturday or Sunday).  Early payment discount of $10.  Tickets available on the web site www.telemarker.org   Pay Pal is accepted.  Discount lift tickets to Seven Springs Resort are available.
