We get the Sunday afternoon pass which allows us to hit the slopes at 2:30. The resort is always clean and the staff very friendly. Great groomed slopes. The last 2 years have been tough snow wise but we still get our butts out there.

This was our first time traveling to Buffalo NY, and we're looking for fun thing to do within driving distance. We were advised by the locals about this place, and it was absolutely amazing. Holiday Valley is a ski town filled with snow activities and fun. If you are in the area, this is a must...family friendly 100%.

I have gone numerous times this winter and always had a great experience. Once a week I bring a high school ski club down to ski in the evening... More

Once you travel into northern Vermont or anywhere out mountain west, pacific west you realize how poor the skiing/boarding is in the mid atlantic states :( But Holiday Valley offers a brief respite especially when they get a good storm off of Lake Erie.

The Inn was great, the staff was welcoming & helpful, and walking out our patio door to jump on the lift was fantastic! Even though the weather didn't cooperate (rain) we had a lot of fun skiing. We can't wait to come back and stay at the Inn again!
