Favorite small mountain? - Page 4

post #91 of 94

Moonlight Basin is half the size of its next-door neighbor with half the skier traffic - does that qualify as small?

 

Seriously, my choice would be Elk Mtn in northeastern PA. Some of the best snowmaking and grooming in the East. It's somewhat remote location keeps the Pocono-bound crowds away and the place is virtually empty on weekdays.

You can say "the place is virtually empty on weekdays" about every Eastern ski area.

skiresort.info is an excellent resource for basic stats about ski areas, location on a Google map, and usually a trail map.  I used it for the more obscure locations in creating my Worldwide Ski Map kml file on Google Earth for 1,900 ski areas around the world.  I did not use it for North America because the "first draft" was an existing 700+ ski area kml file for North America.   Given the depth of skiresort.info for out-of-the-way places, I suspect that it covers the small places in North America very well.
