Holiday Valley Resort in Ellicottville, New York

Painted in 2006

There’s more to Buffalo, New York than the chicken wings, they’ve also got some pretty excellent skiing just an hour out of town in Ellicottville. Holiday Valley is one of those resorts that feels homey, regardless of where you’re visiting from - everyone feels welcome at Holiday Valley. Even though it has just 750 vertical feet of skiable terrain, Holiday Valley still manages to feel big and interesting thanks to its varied terrain spread over several separate aspects and areas. And 11 chairlifts make it easy to switch things up every lap. But really, the crown jewel of Holiday Valley is its night skiing. 37 of its 58 runs open up for night skiing, so you can take lap after lap under the lights, long after the crowds have gone home.
