The sun climbed the horizon Friday morning bringing a day of sunshine and warm winds to the winter warriors of Seven Springs who gathered to celebrate the kind stroke of luck from Old Man Winter. The Mountain Dew Vertical Challenge roared into town and set up a party Dew-style to kick off the weekend. Along with DJ's, free giveaways and even limbo competitions, anyone with a lift ticket was invited to participate in the duel giant slalom open to all ages and abilities.

Zoomin' down the slopes
Seven Spring's new NASTAR race course on Tyrol Slope had over 100 skiers and snowboarders floating up the lifts from 11a.m.-12:30p.m. The weather was perfect, the slopes were two inches thick with new snowfall, and everyone was sipping free Mountain Dew at the top of the hill charging up for their run. The Dew Crew is still holding on to the results, so stay tuned and browse the pictures.
