Gregg’s Knob

North of Terra Alta, West Virginia

DCSki reader Matthew Kavlick writes:

The November 3, 1955 issue of the Charles Daily Mail included a United Press story detailing the opening of the ski slope:

On March 8, 1958, the Morgantown Post included a story referencing skiing at Gregg’s Knob:

By 1961, hard times were beginning to fall on West Virginia’s ski areas. The October 5, 1961 issue of the Morgantown Post documented a lack of skiers, which were threatening the existence of ski areas. The newspaper reported that the Weiss Knob and Bald Knob ski areas would be open for the 1961-1962 winter season, but not Gregg’s Knob.

The name of the newspaper cited is the Charleston Daily Mail, not Charles.

We live in a resort community (with another lost ski slope) very near Gregg's Knob and I did not know there was a ski slope there. I will research this locally and pass on any additional information I find.
