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

Some of the best skiing you will find this side of the Mississippi. First class ski resort, First class lodging, dining, and facilities. You have to Ski it to Believe it.

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!!!
