Arrived last weekend (16-FEB-2007), first time to Blue Knob. In the past I have always skiied at Seven Springs. This place is great. The runs are long (upto 2 miles). Unlike seven springs, if you blink you are at the bottom. The black dimonds are really cool. My kids enjoyed the glades. The lodge could use some updating. If you are looking for ammetities line shopping, night life, etc.. goto the springs. If you want to ski and board go to the Knob. I recommond HIGHLY you will not be disappoined.
