Blue Knob is awesome.
Great runs, lots of choices, and an amazing ski school for the kids. Great personal attention and old school charm. Took my kids during NY state vacation week and found it empty because their normal draw is from VA and MD - who did not have the same week off school. My 8 and 7 year old both learned to ski the first morning, and only got better with the amazing instruction they received the rest of the day and half of the next. Couldn't pull them off the slopes even when the snow picked up and visibility got bad. Even my husband took some lessons to brush up and was so satisfied with his instruction! We'll be back for sure...
As for modern and posh amenities - not much has changed since I learned to ski there in the early 70's! Charming for sure!
The local high school ski clubs arrived about 3:30 pm - but not that many of them
