BLUE KNOB, BEDFORD COUNTY - Some may dread the snow...but for others, this week's two snow storms were a blessing.
Doug Houck, General Manager of Blue Knob All Seasons Resort says their trails have received many awards for their skiing terrain in the Mid Atlantic region because the mountains are steep.
With two major snow storms dumping nearly a foot of snow on our region this, ski resorts around the area are thankful that Mother Nature is cooperating for the start of the season.
"We're really fortunate to have the weather we've had this week. It's kind of our reward for last season" Houck says.
Blue Knob All Season Resort is just one area ski resort that's hoping to rebound after last year's mild winter.
Houck explained, "Last season we only had a total of 30 inches of natural snow. Which we've already had this season."
Although they had a slow season last year, Blue Knob and other resorts worked hard to give their guests a great ski season.
"The bad thing was revenue was down because people didn't see snow in their yards, so they didn't come skiing, but we had a really good season here. We made a lot of snow and people from other ski areas came to blue knob for the first time." Houck says.
With a promising start this year, blue knob resort hopes to show off their award winning slopes to new and old ski lovers.
He says, "We have a lot of glade skiing, which is skiing through the trees, and on occasions like this week, when we get 28 inches of snow in the past week, skiers come out of the woodwork to ski through trees and ski in the glades."
