In response to the review about the ice and reckless skiers, first of all, you mention night skiing. Anywhere you go in PA at night is ice. While Blue does get icy faster than other mountains, learn to ski with it. Sharp skis (assuming your not renting because if that's the case forget going on the double blacks) will solve the ice problem. I was there New Years day and like always, the double black were icy but still manageable. And with the reckless skiers comment, unless you are talking about "good" skiers on the "slow" trails, people can ski as fast as they want. While this doesn't mean cutting people off is allowed but I've never seen that problem. The only issue I have is people standing around (especially at the top of Falls, having a nice line coming down challenge and getting to people standing at the top of falls because they cut over from lazy mile not knowing I guess). This mountain is only good on weekdays.
