As I've stated in numerous previous threads, just because Blue Knob opens up a trail doesn't mean it won't be pretty rocky. I have severe doubts about their current claim of a 45"-60" inch base. No matter what the snowfall amount, the black/double black glades are rock-ski only. I'd stay away from them right now. The blue glades have much better cover and you can normally tell from the top of the glade whether you want to ski it or not.
Lower Shortway, Lower Route 66 and Edgeset may be pretty good right now. They generally don't need too much cover to be skiable.
It was quite cold there though. Stayed between 4 and 10 in the morning and early afternoon with sustained winds of somewhere around 20mph.
I have to agree with those who have talked about the challenge of the mountain. Its definitely unlike anything else I've skied around this area and its nice to have found something with a little challenge to it. My friend called it the Mad River Glen of PA.
