Ski & Ride
Welcome to New York's favorite resort for skiing and snowboarding, named 5th in the East by readers of SKI Magazine.
We're gearing up for the 2013-14 winter season with over $3.1 million in projects! During the winters of 2011-12 and 2012-13 we learned just how effective the automated snowmaking systems installed on Mardi Gras, Morning Star, Yodeler and the Candy Cane Loop were at making great snow during short windows of opportunity, and we're adding automated snowmaking on Cindy's, Foxfire, Edelweiss and Sunrise for winter 2013-14. 70 new HKD SV10 guns were installed, along with 76 automated hydrants. We've purchased a new Pisten Bully 600 Active Boom Winch Cat...that's a long name for a machine that will improve grooming our steepest headwalls. Several of our glades and woodlots have been cleaned up including Devil's Glen, Ego Glades and the woods between Morning Star and Moonshadow. The Outpost area at the base of School Haus East will become a terrain based learning area and Burton has designated this area as a "Riglet Park" for the youngest skiers and riders who want to learn how to ride the park on fun and non-intimidating features. Guest rooms at the Inn have been renovated with new bedding, artwork, lighting and bath fixtures. The Lodge received many finishing touches including the exterior stairways and the removal of the old Day Care building to create a wonderful outdoor space called the Overlook Terrace. Wow! That's a lot of improvements!
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.
