Pebble Creek Ski Resort Elevation

Pebble Creek Ski Resort has a summit elevation of 8,560 feet, or 2,609 meters. However, not all of that elevation is able to be skied. The base of the ski slope sits at 6,300 feet above sea level, creating a ski hill that is 2,260 feet (689 meters) high. This is referred to as the slope's vertical drop - or a measure of how high the skiable hill is.

The summit of 8,560 feet makes this ski resort one of the highest in the country. The average ski slope summit is around 4,000 feet, so this is extremely high compared to its peers.

Pebble Creek Ski Resort Difficulty Level

Difficulty Score
66.3out of 100
←  EasyHard  →
Pebble Creek's difficulty level of 66.3 is above average. 88% of its trails rated as either intermediate or expert-level, which doesn't leave much for the beginners.


At Parks & Trips, we've created a proprietary Difficulty Score that attempts to show how difficult a particular ski slope is. We get to this number by combining a number of metrics for each resort and comparing them to its peers. Most of the score is based off the amount of easy-intermediate-expert slopes by acreage and the maximum vertical drop of the overall resort, but also includes a few lesser-used metrics as well.

Our algorithm compares each resort’s metrics with all others in North America, then assigns each a Difficulty Score, which we use to rank them accordingly. Resorts with a lower score are easier to ski than those with a higher one. However, a high score does not mean that the resort does not have any easy slopes, or vice versa. This is just an overall score given to the resort based on all its metrics grouped together.
