Holiday Valley is a great place... but don't just take our word for it! Here's what our guests have to say...

"We drove 5.5 hours from Michigan to see what the other side of Lake Erie is like for skiing and all hoped and expectations were exceeded. 1. The staff we encountered were all very friendly and helpful. 2. The terrain is varied, well-maintained, and expansive. 3. Lake effect snow. 4. Lodging is basic, clean, and has everything you need. 5. Plenty of ski/board shops around town. In summary, the Petoskey area resorts are a 4 hour drive for us but we find it more than worth the extra hour and a half to get the elevation of Holiday Valley."

"Very family friendly resort, variety of terrain for all experience levels. Minimal line ups, maximum efficiency! Remains an absolute winter holiday fave!"

"WOW.....if you could bottle yesterday and keep it forever what a memory! Jan and I watched winter leave and spring arrive going up the Yodeler chair and I have to say I have never seen such a day."

"Great skiing resort and they're very friendly with Canadians which is nice. Tannenbaum/Happy Glades is my favourite!"

"Great ski resort whether you are bringing the family or not. Several high speed lifts make sure you don't spend half your day in a line up. Varied trails, big jumps, moguls, freestyle runs - you name it they got it! Good food in the cafeteria, friendly staff throughout and most importantly... slopeside waffles! You'll come back again and again."

"We have been coming for a number of years and it only gets better.....the snow and grooming we had during our visit surpassed anything we have experienced. The Thursday morning first runs down "Morning Star" to the "Eagle" chair were out of this world. Once again our family kept our "streak" going by never waiting in any kind of line to get on a chair! The helpfulness of the Inn's Front Desk personnel and Housekeeping is the best of any resort I have stayed in. We look forward to skiing HV for many years to come."

"The lift operators were friendly and amazing at slowing the lifts for my young child."

"My kids love HV and we always comeback multiple times every year because service and accommodations are great and the experience is consistently excellent year after year."

"All the amenities are so close together it was great that our kids could ski and swim in an outdoor pool and have dinner all without getting in a car"

"I have heard that HV was very good. Now, I know it first hand. So glad I came."

"We love it here. We felt the rooms were excellent value even for our Canadian dollars. The indoor/outdoor pool and hot tubs are amazing. The room service at Tamarack is the most reasonably priced. The staff are always extremely friendly and helpful, in the hotel and on the chairlifts. The ski valet is great. It is an easy 3 hour drive from Southwestern Ontario (London) & the town of Ellicottville is a quaint uncrowded little gem. It is a great family getaway. We are already planning out next trip back."

"It's a great time. A lot of the runs are big and wide, and there are some cool glades. Varied and fun terrain. Our place at the Tamarack Lodge was nice, clean and moments from a lift. Free ski check was nice. I had a good time, would go back."

"Awesome place to visit with friends and family. With 60 trails to offer and great lodges. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great food and shops offering the true mountain town experience just minutes down the road."
