Holiday Valley A Great Summer Getaway
Ellicottville, New York, July 10, 2013 . . . Summer is in full swing at Holiday Valley in Ellicottville. Holiday Valley’s three-pool swim complex has something for everyone . . . a lap pool, a toddler pool and an activity pool as well as poolside service from the Cabana Bar and John Harvard’s, and fun games to play on the deck. The pools are open daily through September 2nd.
Sky High Adventure Park at Holiday Valley is a great destination for active outdoor families. The Aerial Park is a playground in the trees featuring a series of platforms and bridges that require strategy and balance, and a bit of courage. Two new courses have been added this year for a total of 12 courses that range from the low level “yellows” to the very challenging and high “double black”. The Sky High Mountain Coaster is a thrilling ride that twists, turns and spirals down the mountain through the woods where the rider controls the speed of the car. The Climbing Forest is the newest feature at Sky High where guests can scramble up to 45 feet in 10 different trees that are fitted with climbing holds and safety harnesses. At the top of each tree the climber can ring a bell, then rappel down using an auto belay device attached to their harness. Climbers can choose their level of challenge from the easier yellows through the toughest blacks.
The resort’s Double Black Diamond 6500 yard, par 70 golf course is open and in peak condition. The Double Black Diamond Golf Course provides challenging golf in a beautiful setting of trees, rolling hills and ponds. The relatively level front nine plays long and is built around a series of ponds and bunkers. The back nine winds its way through the base of the mountain providing spectacular views and a very stern test of golf. Holiday Valley has the best bent grass greens in Western New York. The greens are carefully manicured to provide a fast and true putting surface with a Stimpmeter reading of 10.
Holiday Valley is also the gateway to over 35 miles of mountain biking singletrack located in the McCarty Hill State Forest. These narrow, twisting and tricky trails challenge veteran bikers and have been rated by the International Mountain Biking Association as “Epic”.
