Blue Knob is opening Dec. 21. They were supposed to open Dec 14 but they didn’t because the conditions weren’t good and the weather wasn’t cold enough to make snow. As of right now there is zero inches of snow and no trails are open.

I usually don’t go snowboarding until the the beginning of January or the beginning of March. The best conditions for snowboarding are in late January. I especially like to ride in the morning because the snow is un-touched and it is not as crowded as in the afternoon.  From what I hear from my friends and other snowboarders, Seven Springs is also a great ski restaurant. Seven Springs has just added a terrain park, and it is for anyone from someone who is just starting to ride park to those who are experts.
