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.
