Pros: Great skiing; magnificent groomed trails, no crowds especially during midweek. This is a skier's mountain.
Cons: Would love to have someone open a spa nearby.

We live nearby and so can ski midweek when there are no crowds. Recently and for us, skiing has been as good as it gets anywhere! That's anywhere! Snow has been great and the trails groomed beyond perfection. Elk is definitely a skier's mountain as long as the skiers don't insist on powder. (I'm a senior, so I don't.) Good -- not death-defying -- trails provide enough excitement and challenge. But to appreciate Elk, you've got to return to grooming, and nobody does it better. I love it. You will, too.
