Old timers -

Ok not really old timers, how about pre-webers. I have a question that goes back in the snow phone days of the 1990's.

Who was the voice of Blue Knob in the 90's? As I recall I think his name was "Ed". I think he moved 7 around 2000. I might be off on that.

I recall he gave really good...Phone! Back when we dialed for snow reports instead of surfed....

amazing to think that that was only about 10-12 years ago! I could have swear they also used to give snow reports of the local areas during the weather forecast on the local news too...?

If memory serves me correct....I think you are refering to Ed Miller. He was Technical Director of the Ski School.

You really know how to hurt a guy and fellow slope rider!

The first time I skied Blue Knob was in the early seventies and you got snow reports by drum. The old AF NIKE site barracks were still there, you could stay overnight. Still the coldest place I have ever skied in PA. And the drummers knew what the conditions were day after day: Blue Knob powder...essentially the consistency of the ice in your refrig...er...ice box.

I remember one of Ed's reports after a big dump.... ok probably a few inches of slush. Ed was panting, trying hard to catch his breath after skiing the fresh. He went on about the new snow and great conditions all the while huffing and puffing. Man, that must have been some chair lift ride back to the lodge!!!!
