Holiday Valley to stay open another week


ELLICOTTVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) – The break in the weather so many of us have waited for isn’t enough to shut down skiing at Holiday Valley quite yet.

Holiday Valley’s operators tell us they plan to open up again at least once more, next weekend.  Skiers admit these are different from mid-season conditions but at least they’re still getting to hit the slopes.

“It’s a little slushy here but it’s absolutely beautiful, and it’s just nice to be out in the snow and to think that everything else is green and growing and we can still go skiing and a beautiful day like this,” said Sam Wild of Great Valley.

Another skier who did not give his name told News 4, “I am happy that it extended, but I can’t wait for the golf course to open also.”

A Holiday Valley spokeswoman says one lift and the golf course will be open the weekend of April 12 and 13. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
