After hearing from many friend and fellow skiers how great Elk is and how it's worth the extra 35 min drive (from Philly area) over the other ski resorts, I had very high expectations for this place. It certainly met my expectations as the crowds were very manageable (especially for a Saturday). The lift lines were ALL less than 5 min for the entire afternoon and evening. The trails were very well maintained and had much longer runs than many other comparable PA resorts. If you are going for the first time, be aware that there is a mini shuttle that takes you from the parking lot to the lodge/ticket booth. Also, be aware that lift tickets for any time slots go on sale a half hour before hand. We tried to buy our 12:30 pm tickets, but had to wait 20 min for them to go on sale since we arrived too early. If possible, I would highly recommend bringing your belongings in a backpack because there is a slope that can drop you off right in the parking lot for an easy out. Elk is a great place, and I would easily rate it as the best overall PA 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.

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!
