Full review

The skiing is as good as it gets back here in the east. When the snow is plentiful you can't beat it. Long runs, some 2 miles long. Vertical drop of almost 1100 feet. 34 runs with 4 lifts adequately accommodate all skill levels very well. All lifts are not always operating (3 when we were there in Feb.) and they aren't the fastest. Food is mediocre and over priced, but that seems to be the norm at most places we ski. We have been to Blue Knob 3 times. We have stayed there twice. The first time we had an adequate condo, not the best by any stretch of the imagination but adequate. The second stay was entirely different. I took the advice of a reviewer on another site who highly recommended condo 1103. His review was spot on, but you have to ask for it. The condo was far superior to our first stay. The place was very clean (which pleased my wife). There were TV's in every room (flat screen in the living room). The owner even gives you a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates. As a whole our experience was very good and we will be back. I called this afternoon and they are open this weekend and everything is 50% off. Lodging, lift tickets, rentals, etc. Great Deal!
