Elk Meadows - great skiing experience in Utah !
I couldn't believe that no one put Elk Meadows here on the list of skiing :-).
Luckily, friends took me there, and I had a really wonderful skiing experience !
With an elevation of 10.400 ft, it's even higher in altitude than Utah's famous Park City and Deer Valley !
It has 1400 acres of skiable area, 5 chair lifts, 1 surface lift, more than 30 ascents, half of them rated intermediate.
So, if you want to ski in a less crowded area within Utah - THIS is the place.
Lifts run daily, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
PS: no, I'm not working for Elk Meadows Marketing department :-)
I was just amazed about this skiing area and how much it offers.
Nothing to bring as a tourist who want's to spend some nice days there. I was there just coincidentially, friends took me there at the beginning of a exlpore-Utah's-national-park-vacation, so I didn't have any of my gear with me.
You can rent all gear there, ski, boots, poles, gloves, etc.
Ok, bring some warm clothing and a jacket.
Update - as of November 2007:
I just got an email (thanks Grace :-) telling me that Elk Meadows Ski Resort seems to be closed until further notice.
Elk Meadows closed
Maybe it will change again ?
