SnoBowl Ski & Bike Park is a non-profit community ski hill operated by volunteers on land owned by Elko County. It is located 15 minutes out of Elko on N. 5th Street. The facilities were purchased and installed largely through donations by Elko businesses and residents. It first began operations in 1992, and is one of the most enjoyable winter recreation options that Elko has to offer.
Beginning in 2012, SnoBowl began to offer a summer program with lift-served mountain bike terrain for area riders. This service includes three different trail runs with one trail for all experience levels and two trails for advanced trail riders.
SnoBowl features a 99-chair, 700 vertical foot double chair lift, with a peak elevation of 7,000 feet above sea level. It also has a rope tow for beginning skiers and a multitude of other outdoor options for people who are more inclined to hiking, sledding or snow-shoeing.
The area is managed and run by many people, but the main contributor is mountain manager Roche (Rocky) Bush. It is patrolled by SnoBowl Ski Patrol, a chapter of the National Ski Patrol, and concessions are served at Skip's Snack Shack. Rental equipment and ski/snowboard tune-ups are available at the base area.
