Best in PA! they make a LOT OF SNOW. almost every trail has snow making equipment. and its groomed each night. Its a Hero Skiing, only a few trails have moguls, so even the black diamond runs are easy when groomed. Also has 2 parks for boarders. rails, small jumps. but I'm not a snow boarder. Also have nicer restaurant (with full bar), + cheaper cafeteria and separate 'picnic house' on the mtn, for people to bring their own food (and liquor). it has a fireplace pit you could cook on. also a kids area inside. Basically its an upscale family skiing resort.

Skiing wise the mountain is great! Really long trails, well groomed, and amazing scenery. The terrain park is a bit small but the tow rope means you can get endless runs in pretty quickly. The features are well made but the jumps are small in order to fit them into the small park. Great place for a weekend trip. However the staff is on and off with being friendly and the lifts seems a bit old and slow. The lodge is about pretty standard for a ski resort, not that big, not great food, and hard tiled floors and hard plastic seats.

The pluses are that the slopes are not crowded and there're no out of control borders. But there are many things that need improvement: lifts not only are excruciatingly slow, but they break and the double that's next to the quad has the worst take off I've ever seen. A typical run is 20 min waiting on lift for a couple of min of going down the hill. Cafeteria has very uncomfortable chairs. It's ok for a very quick bite, but if you are done skiing and you have to wait for the rest of your group, this us the worst. The food is bad. The fries are edible, but the salad was old iceberg lettuce and the burger was probably the worst I've had. There's no cell phone coverage and no wifi, so if you get separated from your group is very difficult to find each other. The parking is far and they have a truck that drives people back and forth. They don't allow you to drop off.

The trails are all pretty short and there aren't as many as Killington or Okemo. It's definitely cheaper though with shorter lines.

As a lifelong skier and snowboarder who grew up in Pennsylvania, Elk has become like a second home to me. Truly in a league of its own when compared to other PA mountains, Elk is home to the best snowmaking and terrain south of New York. Conditions are typically a notch or two better than anywhere else in PA due in part to the geography, but also to the excellent grooming crew that is always keeping the mountain fresh. The crowds are usually all but non-existent, with only a short wait even on holiday weekends. If you live in the tri-state area and are looking for outstanding terrain and excellent conditions without having to drive 6+ hours to Vermont, then I highly suggest giving Elk a try.

Every time I've ever ridden this mountain, it has been wonderful! 1000 feet of elevation and some connecting, winding trails make for runs well in excess of a mile in length. Large areas at the top of the lifts where people can gather without impeding those exiting the lift. No high-speed lifts can be both a blessing and a curse. The blessing is when your legs are exhausted and they can recover on the ride up, the curse is when it is cold and windy and it takes FOREVER to get to the top! Love it!

Great place that's not the Pocono's. Meaning not overrun with people. Great mountains too.
