We were in town and decided to stop in to check out the mountain roller coaster. While we were waiting to buy tickets, we heard several groups complaining about not having an appointment and not realizing they needed one for the zip lining. tip: make sure you call ahead if you're planning on zip lining or have a large group....

Hadn't been here in yrs and found ourselves taking a one day jaunt. We usually ski Bristol for its size and challenge. The hills here aren't going to scare you or challenge you too much but there is a variety of them that is welcome. Really enjoyed it. And that surprised me. One thing HV has over Bristol is the...

We love Holiday Valley...the trails are great for skiers of all levels, It is an excellent family destination...My only complaint is that my favorite hill, Fiddlers Elbow has now been converted to a terrain park..we "cruisers" sure miss it..

Holiday Valley Ski Resort is the best in the East. It ranks 5th in service in SKI magazine and lives up to it daily. The skiing is always great because of the expansive snow making capabilities. There are 58 trails and 14 lifts and 4 high speed quads that make for no lines and lots of space to ski. The... More

Not a tall ski place but high enough to yield lots of runs at various skill levels. It is spread out enough that you are not on top of other skiers even on a busy Saturday. We happen to have great snow conditions for skiing so that was a plus.

Perfect ski hill for intermediate skiers. Our son is learning to ski and this hill had the perfect runs for him. There were even some more challenging black hills he conquered. We will definitely be back when the entire hill is open. We skied in April and it was a little icy, but still pretty fun.

We visited in February this year and we had a great time. Last year we came in March and it was too warm to ski, the snow was melting and the skiing was not as good. The resort however is one of the best we've been at. We visited mid week and the slopes were virtually empty, no wait for... More
