Labour Day Fun and Relaxation at Holiday Valley

August 21, 2017

Labour Day Weekend is fast approaching and soon enough the air will begin to cool and the leaves will start to turn.  Fortunately enough, summer activity remains in full swing at Holiday Valley Resort in Ellicottville, NY.  The Spruce Lake chairlift is now spinning on weekends through October 15th, 11a.m. to 5 p.m. for $7 per rider.  Guests may enjoy a slow, scenic ride up to Spruce Lake where they may choose to either walk the ski trails or ride the lift back down to the base.
Located at the base of Spruce Lake and adjacent to the Tannenbaum Lodge is Sky High Adventure Park which will remain open daily through Labor Day and on weekends through October 29th.  The largest of its kind in New York State, the Sky High Aerial Park features 13 courses outfitted with ropes, bridges, raised platforms and zip lines of varying difficulty.  Reservations for the Aerial Adventure Park are required on weekends and suggested on weekdays.  The Climbing Forest is a 3-D version of a climbing wall featuring 10 trees outfitted with climbing holds of varying difficulty, ranging from very easy to very challenging.  The Sky Flyer Mountain Coaster is a roller coaster that swirls and zig zags down the mountain.  The coaster seats one to two riders per car and the entire ride extends 4,805ft in length.  To view age, height and weight requirements and restrictions for participation in Sky High, visit 
The Double Black Diamond golf course is an exceptional, scenic blend of mountain and flat terrain. The18-hole course can prove to be quite challenging, extending 6,500 yards with par at 70.  The entire course is maintained daily and open for play 7 days a week to both lodging guests and the public. The daily rate for 18 holes with a cart on weekdays is $54 (Monday through Thursday) and the weekend rate is $66 (Friday through Sunday). Holiday Valley offers a 20% exchange rate for Canadian visitors, when paid in cash or cheque.
Holiday Valley’s 3-pool complex featuring multi-tiered sun decks, diving board and waterslide is open daily through Labour Day, the perfect place to soak up some sun and unwind with family and friends on this long weekend.  The complex caters to the entire family with a toddler pool, lap pool, activity pool and deck games including ping pong, corn hole and giant Jenga.  While there, visitors can enjoy a cold beverage at the outdoor Cabana bar located adjacent to the pools and open until 8:00p.m.
Visitors can venture over to John Harvard’s Brew House for lunch or dinner, open daily and located inside the Tamarack Club, just a short walk from the pool complex.  The bar features 24 beers on tap, including John Harvard’s own award-winning microbrews as well as local favorites from Ellicottville Brewing Company and Southern Tier Brewery.  They may delight in honest eats and cuisine with a view on the summertime outdoor patio overlooking the Double Black Diamond golf course.  Complimentary poolside service is also available for guests.
The Ellicottville Oasis full-service spa is also located inside the Tamarack Club. The spa is locally owned and offers treatments including massage therapy, body treatments, esthetic treatments, make-up, manicure and pedicure treatments in a free spirited, relaxing environment.
