We had booked a condo owned by Kim and David O'Kane at Blue Knob Resort through VRBO for week in August. Unfortunately, a death in the family forced us to cancel our reservation. Without ANY hassle whatsoever the O'Kanes immediately refunded our deposit. I want...More

Blue Knob, while small in comparison to the surrounding mega ski resorts delivers some of the best terrain south of New York. The highest skiable terrain in PA. It has the longest beginner slope south of New England. 2 miles long with ample opportunity to...More

We enjoy visiting Blue Knob. Has a nice long run and a fair amount of trails for a Pennsylvania resort. Wish they'd be a little more ambitious with their park though and get better jumps etc..

I find it very hard to rate to place. On the one hand the snow was just bad - temperatures had been too high for too long, which means that ski conditions just got worse and worse during our stay. While we had full day...More

I'm going to start with the Skiing because it was better than our stay in the Lodge. The slopes were fun and there was new snow, until the warm weather moved in. It wasn't crowded and that was nice. However, the lifts were terrible. They...More

While Blue Knob may not be best for first timers, but it is still okay for those who aren't experts. It receives less people than Seven Springs or Hidden Valley, so the hills, while icy, aren't dangerously slick. There is a mix of trails: wide...More
