About the Ski Resort

Holiday Valley Resort is home to great skiing, great times and great friends.

Skiers will discover 52 slopes spread over five mountain faces and 1,100 acres, 13 efficient lifts and three skier-friendly base lodges.

Snowboarders are welcomed on the entire mountain. There's a half-pipe on Foxfire and 38 trails lit for night skiing.

Beginners will appreciate the gently pitched terrain of the School Haus and scenic Tannenbaum runs. Morning Star, Sunrise and Cindy's Run areas are an intermediate's paradise.

Advanced skiers gravitate toward the mogul runs and steep pitches of the Chute and Eagle areas, as well as The Wall, the steepest slope in western New York State.

Skiers will find great snow everywhere thanks to Holiday Valley's extensive snowmaking system and state of the art grooming.

There's also the charming village of Ellicottville with unique shopping, fine dining and an endless nightlife to help make you feel you found your ski home.

To get to Holiday Valley Resort from the north and northwest, use the New York State Thruway to Exit 55 and take Route 219 south to Ellicottville. From points west and south, take Routes 242 or 219 off Route 86.
