Ski and golf in the same location this weekend

ELLICOTTVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) – Holiday Valley in Ellicottville will be open this weekend, April 12 and 13, with one lift operating. The Yodeler lift will be in operation from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday with up to 11 slopes available.

The weather will play an important role in determining whether the resort also opens the front nine of the Double Black Diamond Golf Course on Saturday. If so, visitors will have the unusual opportunity to ski the slopes in the morning and golf the course in the afternoon.

It has happened before, but it is considered a rare occurrence in western New York. Local ski resorts have enjoyed a particularly long season for skiing and snowboarding this year with an early start and an extended period of colder than normal weather.

If skiing and golfing aren’t enough, the resort is hosting a bluegrass and roots music festival Friday through Sunday.
