Elk Ridge Ski Area
Elk Ridge Ski and Outdoor Recreation Area Overview
Elk Ridge Ski and Outdoor Recreation Area is the smallest of Arizona’s 4 ski areas. It is a community oriented area located in Williams, AZ. Elk Ridge caters to skiers, snowboarders and snow tubers. The area, formerly known as Williams Ski Area, was purchased in 2005 by the Fountain Outdoor Recreation Corporation. The town of Williams, AZ is known as the “Gateway to the Grand Canyon” and is a favorite stop for those traveling Route 66. Tourists can enjoy a funky day of family skiing on their way down the Mother Road on their way to one of the Natural Wonders of the World!
According to owner Tammy Fountain, Elk Ridge prides itself on being a family friendly area where you can sit on the deck and watch your kids take a lesson on the bunny hill. At WinterReview we love family and community ski areas and this one is located just 30 minutes west of our hometown of Flagstaff, AZ.
This little ski area has everything for a family day of fun in the snow. Fountain says they keep their lessons small to give personal attention to each beginner skier. They offer ski and snowboard rentals as well. For those non-skiers that prefer to stay a little closer to the ground, the ski area has two 300 ft tubing runs. Your family can enjoy a 3 hour window of snow tubing on equipment provided by Elk Ridge. No personal tubing or sledding equipment is allowed.
The White Stag Café and bar offers warm drinks and food to warm up and re-energize.
This community ski area also supports local special needs camps and other community groups. The small mountain town of Williams, AZ is lucky to have this community gem just 3 miles from downtown!
