AS A LOCAL SKIIER FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS HERE IS A HONEST REVIEW. ELK HAS BY FAR THE BEST OVERALL MTN IN PA. THE LIFTS ARE ABSOLUTEY TERRIBBLY SLOW.THEY ARE YEARS BEHIND IN TERRAIN PARKS AND THE NIGHT SKIING STINKS. OTHER MTNS ARE MAKING GREAT PROGRESS IN THIS AREA AND ELK JUST SITS BACK AND DOES LITTLE. I SEE SNO MTN GETTING ALOT OF THERE BUSINESS IN THE COMING YEARS. ALSO THEY SEEM TO BE THE LAST OPENING AND SEEM TO BE AFRAID TO TURN ON THE SNOW GUNS. LAST JAN WE SKIIED SNO, ELK, JACK FROST AND CAMELBACK ALL IN ONE WEEK. WHILE FROST AND CAMELBACK WERE WALL TO WALL SNOW, ELK ONLY HAD 14 OUT OF 27 OPEN. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS EXCEPT FOR SPENDING MONEY.
