Elk Ridge Ski Area, formerly known as Williams Ski Area before being purchased in 2005 by Fountain Outdoor Recreation Corporation. Although the area is the smallest of the four ski areas in Arizona, it has 37 skiable acres for skiing, snowboarding for those of differing abilities. Elk Ridge considers itself a family mountain both with its employees and with their customers. In addition, the varied terrain of this resort offers year round tubing. The resort is located 30 miles west of Flagstaff, Arizona, in the town of Williams, Arizona, the "Gateway to the Grand Canyon."

Lodge facilities include equipment rentals, both skiing and snowboarding lessons. There is a snack bar service. The lodge is also home to First Aid services by National Ski Patrol.
