Been skiing at Blue Knob 30+ years you never know what to expect. The mountain tends to get icey quite often due to the lay of the land and our moderating winters. Snow making has improved over the past ten years, still plenty of room for improvement. Hope you are going to ski or board because the so called "lodge" is nothing to speak of. I would recommend the skiing atleast once on a perfect day, otherwise dress "very" warm and enjoy the view at the top of the mountain.
