eastern Pa skiingA summary of 25 years research: Elk is by far the best in eastern PA, better than Greek Peak in Binghampton, NY. If the drive to 7S and Elk is about the same, do Elk. Blue is the clear leader of the rest, much more worth the trip than Camelback, which, as noted, has a short headwall and a long, flat, runout with lots of crossing trails. BB and JF hardly worth the trip. A note on Blue season pass: I bought a weekday season pass last year, about $350, I think. From Philly, Blue is just a more practical day trip than Elk. Used it opening day, Dec. 9, and then tore my ACL at the ETU at Stowe three days later (successful surgery in Feb., three months of PT three days a week, and I will be at the 04 ETU). A few weeks later I went back to Blue with my MRI report and they told me not to worry, they'll let me use the pass this season instead, no questions asked.
