many runs from the summit, good grooming, 10 black diamonds when they are open
slow lifts, expensive for seniors, this winter four black diamonds are still closed

Full review

I have reviewed Elk before, praising its excellent terrain, good grooming, challenging black diamond trails etc. I am writing now to express my great disappointment that on 1/16/18, despite ideal snow making weather for weeks, Elk has not made snow on four of its most popular and interesting black diamond trails and they are closed. The explanation I received was that the resort was "conserving water," but since then there has been more snow-making on other trails. It is the black diamond trails that make Elk interesting and attracts skiers like me despite its relative isolation and costliness for seniors. I and my friends will not ski again at Elk until these favorite black diamond trails are open.

Elk Mountain Ski Resort - It gets 5 stars because this is about as good as it gets in PA!  all the new snow bonded beautifully to the base so it's soft, consistent snow from edge to edge.  They've also left a number of trails ungroomed so there are a lot   - © james
