The "bowl" is about 3 turns that drop you into the "field" which runs you in to the only interesting part of the run, the trail. Blue Knob is a unique mtn. and their best runs go straight down the fall line under lifts (Route 66, High Hopes), tight and steep for PA. Again, however, they never have open what they claim, and do yourself a favor, and don't bother ignoring the closed ropes on any of the glades they show on the map unless you want to buy new skis. Fallen logs and rocks everywhere, and they are NOT covered well enough. If you go, make sure they just got 12 inches of natural snow, bc their snowmaking is weak. Like Peyton Manning in the playoffs type weak
Now, please hurry up March 3rd, it's almost Summit County time and I'm drooling over the pics i'm finding online of A-Basin! (the others are nice too lol)
