I've been boarding for past 15+ years. I was back this week and found the place hasn't changed. It's still has the old charm and ski etiquette I've come accustomed to. I hope this never changes. The Eagle's lyrics said " If you call something Paradise kiss it goodbye". I look forward to many more years on the mountain. Thomas... More

I am a retired physician who has skied Elk for over 30 years in between trips out west and Canada. It's a throwback from the late 60's so don't expect anything fancy. What you will find is great people, above average food and excellent conditions for intermediates. I have 32 days so far this year band plan more!

great people, great skiing but the ski resort is a bit behind the times. Lodge not comfortable and crowded. Staff very nice.

It's close to home for us, so we love it! The more snow the better. But be careful on the roads--we see fender benders up here all the time b/c on this side of the mountain we get a LOT more snow than even 10 miles down the road. Elk is small, but well groomed and we love the trails.... More

My girlfriend and I arrived at Elk on the coldest day in years. We were warned by the staff when we arrived that the mountain top was -30 wind chill ! The staff were great, the trails are nice but the lifts are the old slow lifts. But the resort was not crowed and the lines were quick!

A group of couples went out to Elk for Valentine's Day weekend and it was so much fun! The snow was great, which they can't really control, but the lodge was nice. The beer is reasonably priced for ski lodge too. We rented outside of elk so can't say anything for that but the runs are great. Tons of options... More

Me and my family love elk Mountain. The trails are great and have a great variety from beginner to expert. Ski School is enjoyable(as the youngest one says) and the snow is always in good conditions. It is a great place to go with family and friends, and the lifts are not rusty or breaking down much.

Good hill for beginner to advanced skier, though it is more tailored to the advanced skier. The day we went conditions were great with 6 inches of fresh powder, the whole hill was open. Lots of bumps, interesting trails, no lines. Bob in guest services was particularly helpful.

Elk Mountain presents enough challenges for the intermediate skier and is fun enough for an expert skier traveling with novices. The food leaves a lot to be desired though so I would suggest bringing your own.

Skied there 2 days last week. Very picturesque with all the pine trees lining the trails. Not a large place, or very high (1000') but the trails are very nice. Nice lodge & bar area. It was bitter cold and the lifts are sloooow. That's the only drawback. Hope to visit again.
