You may think by the title of my blog post that it is written about HBO's Game of Thrones (which I am a huge fan); however, I literally mean in this case - winter is coming.  As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, I love to ski!  It is one of the only things I enjoy about the winter.

 

My favourite place to ski that is a reasonable drive (under 3 hours) is Holiday Valley in Ellicottville, New York.  I have been skiing there for over 30 years.

 

Here are some stats about Holiday Valley:

  • Yearly Average Snowfall - 180 inches
  • Snow making Coverage - 95%
  • Vertical Rise - 750 feet
  • Base Elevation - 1500 feet
  • Top Elevation - 2250 feet
  • Total Acreage - 1400 acres
  • Ski-able Acreage - 290 acres
  • Number of Day Trails - 58
  • Number of Night Trails - 37
  • Total Uphill Skier Capacity - 23,850 people per hour
  • Number of Lifts - 13
  • High Speed Quad Chairs -3
  • Fixed Grip Quad Chairs- 8
  • Surface Lifts - 2

Holiday Valley is great for families.  The get a lot of snow and make a lot of snow.  It has a lot of great night skiing as well.  

 

They also have numerous places you can stay.  We like to stay at the Tamarack Club which has a great indoor/outdoor pool and 2 hot tubs to enjoy after a long day of skiing.  

 

If you are looking to try a new place to ski, I would highly recommend giving Holiday Valley a try.
