Elk-Mountain is a premiere ski resort located in the Endless Mountains approximately 30 miles from Scranton, Pennsylvania. Elk Mountain has 100 percent snowmaking coverage, which offers great skiing and snowboarding, all throughout the season. Elk Mountain has been listed in Ski Magazine as one of the "Six Unsung Heroes," which is a list of hidden gems for skiing. Elk Mountain has a 1000-foot vertical drop, 140 acres, 27 trails (6 greens, 10 blues and 11 diamonds) and a terrain park. Five doubles and a fixed-grip quad chair lift provide access to the top, four of which, including the quad, run from the base to the summit. Also located on the mountain is a complex that features a day lodge, complete guest services, a ski school center, restaurants, rentals and a ski and snowboard shop. Elk Mountain dates to 1959, when it first opened with a small base lodge, a 2,200 foot T-bar, several slopes and a small warming hut. It greatly expanded in the 1980s, including the expansion of snowmaking capabilities. Between 1990 and 1996, seven new trails were added and two others were lengthened. Today, Elk Mountain boasts 27 slopes and trails with a lot of variety and one of the most challenging terrains for skiing in all of Pennsylvania.
