Cross Country Skiing

Season: Winter
Location: On Site

The trails on top are open until 3:00 PM and we recommend intermediate skills. You can buy a 2-ride cross country ticket for Mardi Gras, Cindy's, Tannenbaum or Yodeler lifts for $18. You can either ride Mardi Gras, Tannenbaum or Yodeler chairs back down, or ski down one of the easier trails (Tannenbaum or Explorer/Day's End recommended). The easier trails along the golf course at the base of the mountain are open during daylight hours but be sure to stay away from the ponds that are used for snowmaking. (they're marked with a rope) Cross country rental skis, boots and poles are $20 per day.

Adventurous and experienced cross country skiers can make use of the miles and miles of mountain bike trails located in the state forest bordering Holiday Valley. These trails are not patrolled or maintained, so take all precautions of a responsible back country skier.

The Art Roscoe trails in nearby Allegany State Park provide 20+ miles of pristine double tracked classical trails through the forest. Use of the trails is free and the trails are maintained by Allegany Nordic.
