Eight miles north of Terra Alta, West Virginia was Gregg’s Knob ski area. Gregg’s Knob was located on Gregg’s Knob Mountain which is one of the highest peaks in Preston County.



The northeastern face of the mountain offered a quarter mile slope serviced by two rope tows. You could enjoy a day or afternoon of skiing at 3,300 feet for only $1.50.



Three Morganton men, John Garlow, Wayne W. Bowen, and Roy Williamson, were in charge of the project. The Mountaineer Winter Sports Club was responsible in-part to getting information out about Gregg’s Knob ski area.
