Blue Knob is a mid-sized ski area in the ridges around Altoona in southern Pennsylvania. It's sized makes it large by Pennsylvania standards. It offers a number of glades and advanced terrain features to set it apart.
Start of the Snow Drop beginner's area. When ready for a full run, Mambo Alley is the only beginner route down.
There are several intermediate trails at the top, but all converge on the triple. Alternatively take Run Out to the double chairs.
Jack Rabbit and Expressway are good cruisers.
Extrovert is left to bump up. For a narrow run with some steep drops, East-Wall Traverse will lead to Stembogan trail. Both of the double lift lines also offer some narrower trails.
- Tree Skiing / Glades
There are low-angle intermediate level glades on either side of the triple chair. The Forever Glades are the largest and widest spaced of these. The Ditch and East Wall glades are fairly open but steeper.
