Weather conditions cause Blair County ski resort to delay ski season opening


BLAIR COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ)– Due to the weather being warmer this year, Blue Knob Ski Resort in Claysburg will be opening tentaivley Dec. 22 with limited terrain, according to their website.

“Mother Nature has made it really difficult to make & keep snow on the ground lately. Unfortunately, the next few days are calling for even warmer temperatures and over an inch of rain from Friday into Saturday,” according to a news release.

By pushing back the date, the resort is giving its snow crew a couple of nights to “get the guns going again.” The resort hopes that this will be able to allow them to preserve the snow they have.

“We know everyone is stoked to ski & ride, but we think this will provide a better experience for all,” their website says.

According to a release, their snow tubing park will open on Friday Dec. 24.

With a 960-meter ski slope, Bluer Knob Ski Resort is PA’s tallest skiable mountain.
