Blue knob is easily the best ski area in pa. It has something for almost anyone. the top of the mountain is all beginner and intermediate terrain which is usually very well groomed and has its own triple lift. The lower mountain is all expert runs and glades with one beginner trail (run out) which runs from the base of the upper mountain to the base of the lower mountain. The lower mountain easily has the hardest runs in the mid-a. Unfortunately snow making at BK is a little lacking; although, it has greatly improved in the past 10 years. BK has a very rustic personality similar to Mad river glen Vermont. It is not by any means a resort. This place is only for people who want to just ski or board. lift lines in recent years have started to become a little longer as direct result of snow making improvements and the increasing decline of seven springs, but they are still very manageable. overall i'm very satisfied. If I could I would come skiing here every weekend.
