Seven Springs is more difficult to get to than Winterplace,
where the slopes border the interstate, but it is by far the second easiest
skiing facility in the region to access. Just drive north or south until you reach
I-70. Then follow it to Western Pa., and turn off at the Somerset exit.
Drive up the hill through the center of town and turn right onto Route
31. Follow it west for 10-15 minutes until the Seven Springs gateway appears
on your left. If you are coming up from Kentucky, we highly recommend you go through
West Virginia, I-79 to Morgantown, and I-68 east into
Maryland. Then you can cut across country on state route 219 through Meyersdale.
In Spring, Summer and Fall this would be a shorter route. But we've tried
it several times. In Winter it is not reliable. You almost always hit
snow, ice, fog, wind, cold and sometimes blizzards in West Virginia and
the ice and snow extends into Maryland. The Meyersdale cutoff also has
a tradition of drifting snow. We have been forced to stop for the night
in various West Virginia towns and have had some trips snowed out, where
we had to wait two days in West Virginia and then when the weather cleared
just drive back to Kentucky. So trust us : take the lower elevation, more
reliable Ohio route.
