Ski PA's Highest Skiable Mountain

Blue Knob All Seasons Resort is the place for a winter enthusiast looking for an outdoor adventure! With the highest skiable mountain in Pennsylvania it’s one of the most challenging ski resorts in the state. The resort offers 100 skiable acres, 34 trails with a vertical drop of 1,072 served by five lifts and it has extensive snow making, so those who love winter can enjoy winter days and nights on the mountain.

The mountain is Blue Knob’s main asset. Here skiers will find an alpine skiing experience. The scenery, wilderness and numerous pines around the slopes offer a different experience than the average ski resort. Experts will find numerous challenges at Blue Knob, from steep, narrow chutes to advanced glade and bowl trails. Fans of these slopes say they enjoy the different terrain and consider it to be the best vertical in the Mid-Atlantic area. While the majority of Blue Knob’s terrain is for advanced intermediates and advanced skiers, there are easier trails for beginners at the top of the mountain.

New ownership continues to invest in upgrades at the resort. There is now a first-time and beginner snow sports area and “magic carpet” conveyor which is located just outside the Summit Lodge for easy access. There is also a new snow tubing park that is within walking distance of the Summit Lodge, with eight tubing lanes and a handle row. Returning visitors will notice new seasonal equipment lockers, as well as new snowboard boots and helmets for rentals. An exciting change has been made to the snowmaking system, including the addition of a new 300-horsepower, five-stage vertical pump with an amazing 1,000-gallon-per-minute capacity.

Indoor Recreation

Just a short distance off the mountain in Altoona, visitors with young families can enjoy numerous indoor recreational activities as well. The famous toy Slinky is manufactured in the area, and an indoor recreation center, Slinky Action Zone, is geared towards young people with indoor laser tag, ski ball, bumper cars, arcade games and more. Another indoor recreation center, Tilt Studio is located inside the Logan Valley Mall on the upper level. Here you will find mini bowling, mini golf, and over 100 arcade games. Or challenge you and your family to a physical adventure game at Altoona's newest Escape Room Co. located along 12 Street in Altoona.
