  • Been skiing here for almost 50 years.....Never had a bad day!! If you want challenge its got it. The staff is always courteous and helpful. It is also a great place to learn to ski and board.  more »

  • Holiday Valley was a very nice getaway. My daughter and went to ride the Sky Mountain Coaster and had a riot doing it. Lots of fun, not a long wait to ride it any of the times we did it. Good location...  more »

  • A great place to all year long. Ellicottville is one of my favorite places to go to get away from the city. The ride down on 219 is gorgeous and its many turns rival even the Dragon for a cool motorcycle ride. The people there have this laidback feeling much like Vail, CO but less pretentious (sorry CO peeps but....). They remodeled the parking lots and made them more paved and user friendly. Don't forget to stop be the Brewery for an amazing meal.
  • It's a great place to go skiing whether you're a local or somebody from out of town like myself (from NE Ohio). The runs their are a nice mix of beginner and upper mid tier terrain. Crowds can get a bit out of hand on the holidays like new years, but for the most part you will get up and down the mountain in little time. Really the only issue I have with Holiday Valley is the price of lift tickets, which run for $75 for a full day. All things considered though it's a great family friendly resort which offers some of the best skiing around at a somewhat reasonable price.
  • Nice place to go snowboarding and drink/eat after. Had burgers which looked as it was sitting out for a while but it tasted really good. wasn't sure if I was super hungry but felt that meat was decent. The burger and fries were 10 dollars and and with drink that will cost you total of 5. Not super overpriced considering it is ski lodge.
  • Nice variety of hills and offerings for all skill levels. Most lifts are fast and quads. The busiest lifts usually have an employee to direct traffic - helpful to speed up the process. Can get busy, but most people are able to spread and find a quiet place somewhere in the hills. Worth the travel from Cleveland for a day or weekend trip.
  • Great place to go snowboarding or skiing. Absolutely beautiful. A good mix of slopes. Well maintained.
