Family Vacations at Holiday Valley Resort
in Ellicottville, New York

Ellicottville, NY, June 4, 2014 . . . Holiday Valley in Ellicottville, New York, well known for winter family fun, can now add summer to that list.  The snowy slopes give way to a lush 18-hole golf course, refreshing outdoor swimming pools, miles of mountain biking trails and Sky High Adventure Park.  Along with the unique shopping and dining in Ellicottville and lodging at the resort, there’s plenty of fun for everyone in the family.

Holiday Valley offers very reasonably priced family packages with accommodations at the course-side Inn at Holiday Valley, the new Tamarack Club or one of the many condominiums or townhouses in the Ellicottville area.  The award-winning Inn at Holiday Valley is a comfortably elegant experience and features an indoor / outdoor heated pool, an outdoor hot tub, a cedar sauna, an exercise room and a daily continental breakfast.  The Tamarack Club, completed in December 2009 is Holiday Valley’s most luxurious lodging property featuring one, two and three bedroom condominiums and deluxe hotel rooms.  The Tamarack Club is located at Holiday Valley’s base area and overlooks the number nine green.  Falling Waters Spa at the Tamarack Club will help ease tired muscles after a day on the links.  Resort Condominium International (RCI) allows RCI Members to exchange their designated week at Holiday Valley’s Tamarack Club.  There are plenty of places to refuel and hydrate, including the poolside Cabana Bar, the lively John Harvard’s Brew House and McCarty Café at Holiday Valley as well as several dining establishments in Ellicottville.

The recently redesigned “Double Black Diamond” 18-hole par 70 golf course has well-placed unique hazards, immaculate greens and bent grass fairways as well as a friendly and casual atmosphere.  The resort offers golf packages that include golf, power cart, accommodations, arrival gift, club cleaning and storage with add-ons like spa treatments, additional golf or meals.  Week-long stays at the nearby condominiums are attractively priced. 

Families especially enjoy Sky High Adventure Park that features an Aerial Park, a Climbing Forest and a Mountain Coaster. The Aerial Park is a treetop adventure where climbers can challenge themselves on thirteen courses by crossing bridges, climbing ladders and soaring on zip lines. The Climbing Forest is 3-D climbing where handholds are strapped to tree trunks and climbers can ascend as high as 40 feet. The Mountain Coaster is a ride for one or two people that zigs, zags and spirals down the mountain through the trees. Mountain biking in the area is a thrilling experience with more than 35 miles of single track and open trails through the woods and mountains.  The three pool complex is fully equipped with a lap pool, toddler pool and activities pool with a diving board and water slide.  Children and their parents can truly relax in the country setting.  A fully licensed Day Care Center operates Monday through Friday.  A junior Golf Camp for ages 8 to18 is held in early July.
