The first time ever i set foot in a ski boot,steped into a pair of skis was 20 years past. That place was Blue Knob, never heard of it till then and since then having visited several other places i always have had and never will loose my admiration for this exceptional ski experience. If you are the kind of person that needs all the bells & whistles of a full blown ski resort ie: apre's ski,night life,shopping ect. this probably isn't the place for you ( which by the way IS one of the most attractive qualities for me ) If however you are in need of some peace of mind while enjoying our favorite winter activity then this is where you need to be. I cannot say enough good about the entire Blue Knob experience from the variety of terrain to the attitude and laid back disposition of the people both operating and visiting. Yes its true the snow conditions are not always good however when they are i will drive right past the Springs and spend 1 more hour in the ski transport every time.
