Ski & Ride
Welcome to New York's favorite resort for skiing and snowboarding, named 5th in the East in 2013 and 2014 by readers of SKI Magazine.
We're gearing up for the 2014-15 winter season with over $3.7 million in projects! Since the winter of 2011-12 we learned just how effective automated snowmaking is for making great snow during short windows of opportunity. In addition to our wall to wall traditional snowmaking system, we've installed automated snowmaking on Mardi Gras, Morning Star, Yodeler, the Candy Cane Loop, Cindy's, Foxfire, Edelweiss and Sunrise and now for winter 2014-15 we'll add 54 automated snowguns on Snowledge, The Wall, Morning Star and Crystal. New snowmaking pipelines were installed on Reindeer, Woodpecker, Firecracker, Cindy's and Champagne. Slopework includes widening and snowmaking on Eagle. To make it easier to get around the resort we've added a new trail from the top of Morning Star to Crystal, a second from the top of Sunrise to Bearcub and a third from the top of Sunrise to School Haus. Renovation continues in the guest rooms and lobby area at the Inn. Another improvement that is near and dear to the hearts of many Holiday Valley fans is the rebuilding of the Clocktower at the base area. Meet 'cha at the Clocktower!
Our 58 slopes and 13 lifts, our powerhouse snowmaking and grooming system, our three beautiful base lodges and guest rooms, as well as the fun-loving Village of Ellicottville make Holiday Valley simply the best in the region! Download the 2013-14 Winter Brochure.
Find out about our midweek packages at the beautiful Inn at Holiday Valley, the new Tamarack Club or a cozy condo on or near the slopes. Stay with us midweek and up to 2 children can ski and stay FREE!
