Travel Ideas around Pittsburgh...Our Mountain Playground and Other Stuff

Someone told me that if I learned to ski, Pittsburgh winters would go by much faster.
I think it's true!
 We are lucky in Pittsburgh to have Seven Springs Ski Resort so close to us.

They have a Blind Skier program which was pretty popular this past season.
I saw these orange vests a lot.

 The Foggy Goggle is a popular place to take a break or end the day too.

Place to stay by Seven Springs and Ohiopyle.
