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..

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

The slopes here present a good variety for the various classes of skiers. And, it's not all that far from the major metropolitan centers. PA? Who knew?

Well, I think I have a lot to say, good and bad. Obviously, when I give a bad review it's because it's valid, but this review isn't all bad anyway. I'll start off with the good parts to Blue Knob and I'll conclude with the...More

Not sure where on I-40 you intend to start. From Washington, PA to Pavia (the little town at the base of the park), the travel time is 2 hours, 18 mins and the distance is about 130 miles. The suggested route is the PA... More

No they don't. I would not recommend this slope for kids. They do not mark closed slopes well. The ski bindings are too tight and do not come off when you fall. My daughter was injured while exiting a ski lift with her... More
