Ski snobs looking at statistics for "vertical" won't be impressed, but there is some great skiing to be had at Holiday Valley. There are wide groomers, smaller tree-lined trails, and even some glades to entertain beginning and intermediate skiers. Expert skiers may not find the "steeps" they can find in Vermont or Mont Tremblant, but otherwise this is a great skiing representative of the east coast. Trails go in a variety of directions from the tops of the lifts giving the impression of a bigger resort with the ability to get away from the lodge. The lodges are spacious and clean, but feel a little too resort-ish for my taste - my group didn't find any place fun to sit and enjoy a cocktail so we headed into town for the apres ski.
