2021 has been an unprecedented year for a number of reasons. We had a great ski and snowboard season last winter; despite the pandemic and not being able to have our friends from Canada visit us. This summer, our amazing Mountain Operations team tore down the old Yodeler lift and installed a brand new High Speed Quad that we will unveil this winter. And recently, Holiday Valley was ranked #2 in the annual SKI Magazine Reader Poll for East Coast Resorts.

This is the highest Holiday Valley has ever been ranked and we couldn’t be more honored because at the end of the day, this is a poll that is based on the opinions of you, our dedicated guests. SKI readers, just like you, made their voices heard and voted for their favorite resorts. When it was all said and done, Holiday Valley came out ahead of all the other resorts, save one, on the East Coast.

“It's quite an accomplishment,” stated Dennis Eshbaugh, Holiday Valley President. “Our founders would be very proud of what they started. Our entire staff is to be commended, and this #2 ranking would not be possible without the addition of Ellicottville’s great dining, shopping and nightlife.”

SKI Magazine online will be announcing the top 10 in the various categories in which the ski areas were ranked over the next several weeks. Holiday Valley was rated especially high in lifts and dining.
