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

Visited the weekend of March 28-29. The snow was really good for the end of March, and their groomers had it looking its best. A wide variety of slopes and runs for skiers of all skill levels. Up to 3 high speed lifts to get you to the top of the run in a jiffy. Multiple lodges located throughout the... More

Quite possibly one of the most underrated and undervalued ski resorts in the Eastern United States. The best time to come down here is during the week, it does get busy and somewhat crowded on the weekends. Just over 1 hr from the Canadian border and just a few hrs from many places in Western NY & Western PA and... More

We have been to many different ski resorts this past winter... This one was the best, hands down! If you are a skier that enjoys more advanced terrain, then this is the place for you! The conditions and grooming were EXCELLENT for Spring skiing. This resort is well taken care of. We can't wait to go back!!!

Holiday Valley Tubing Company is a tubing park owned and operated by Holiday Valley just four miles north of Ellicottville off Route 242. Tubing is fun for all ages. The park features 22 lanes. Each lane is about 900 feet long. The hill's overall vertical drop is about 100 feet. You can ride solo or link tubes with others for... More

A great small resort, but big in the way they ran the eastern mogul championships, the course was superb and the way they ran the event it was evident that all involved loved what they were doing, just the great accommodations, ski in ski out, the beautiful lodges, the vitality of the employees and volunteers that ran the event ,...

Quick Visit to Holiday Valley! Rain, Sleet and Snow all day but for the last ride of the day the skies cleared and we luckily wound up on the Lucky Golden Chair #50!! Hard chair to get as there is only 1. It brings you good luck and great skiing. Great way to end the day!!
