This resort is very dated. Could have so much potential. Nice vertical. Good mix of terrain. Sits on top the mountain with lots of space... Lodge just needs torn down and rebuilt with a new one... No flow to purchase tickets... No signs directing where to go. Would be so nice with a ski village, shops and restaurants on too... 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 and small, easy and difficult, flatter and steeper. Blue Knob helped me become more and... 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?

Well, I think I have a lot to say, good and bad. Obviously, when I give a bad review it's because it's valid, but this review isn't all bad anyway. I'll start off with the good parts to Blue Knob and I'll conclude with the bad. THE GOOD: Beautiful ski resort with wide trails and well maintained snow. When I... More

I live in Maryland so for a day trip i happily trek to blue knob. It has some real steep challenging stuff that are much harder than other ski resorts, and good intermediate stuff. ticket prices are much lower too. Stembogan bowl is one of a kind. The glades when open are real hard. Very laid back and friendly. The... More

Blue Knob has the best terrain based on variety and challenge. The resort is not crowded. Management could be better but I wouldn't trade it over all the perks. We stay at the Tranquill Chalet, right on the slopes. It's perfect for friends/family. While I am not a fan of the tubing park, there are additional things to do. If... More

Many runs closed and its extremely slow so WAX your skis. Some thin areas and today, Mon there are barely 20 skiers if that. Am told the weekend was packed and set a record attendance maybe. Dont know. If you got to have a certain run call else enjoy paralleling down very easy mambo to the triple chair.

I was initially pretty apprehensive about our stay due to several negative reviews I read beforehand but I am very glad to have ignored that feeling because we had an absolutely wonderful stay. Of course it was disappointing that the slopes weren't open...Mother Nature had other plans obviously. We stayed in a studio room and were very pleased with how... More

4 of the 5 children we took skiing here, and who were all experienced skiers, got serious injuries the first day out. All five children will probably NEVER SKI AGAIN. The skis were tightened far too much AND NOT ONE SKI RELEASED IN A VARIETY OF FALLS. 3 of the children had to go to the emergency room. I would... More
