Blue Knob, while small in comparison to the surrounding mega ski resorts delivers some of the best terrain south of New York. The highest skiable terrain in PA. It has the longest beginner slope south of New England. 2 miles long with ample opportunity to...More

We enjoy visiting Blue Knob. Has a nice long run and a fair amount of trails for a Pennsylvania resort. Wish they'd be a little more ambitious with their park though and get better jumps etc..

We all met here for a girls' evening. The rooms are not very nice at all. The ceiling fan light only had one working light bulb. There were two bathrooms which made it nice, but every time you flushed the commode you would have to...More

I'm going to start with the Skiing because it was better than our stay in the Lodge. The slopes were fun and there was new snow, until the warm weather moved in. It wasn't crowded and that was nice. However, the lifts were terrible. They...More

While Blue Knob may not be best for first timers, but it is still okay for those who aren't experts. It receives less people than Seven Springs or Hidden Valley, so the hills, while icy, aren't dangerously slick. There is a mix of trails: wide...More

The slopes here present a good variety for the various classes of skiers. And, it's not all that far from the major metropolitan centers. PA? Who knew?
