Despite all the good things about Holiday Valley, management is just not paying attention to trail grooming and dangerous trail conditions. 1. Arrive early am and you will find no trail grooming on Morningstar, Chute, Champagne, Yodeler, etc. Groomers either sleeping on over-night shift, OR, there simply are no groomers operational after hours. Shame on you! Go to Bristol Mtn.... More

We had an absolute ball. My first time and it was great. My only issue were the long lines and wait time to go back up the hill. It was well worth it. Can't wait to go back.

Spent 2 days skiing and snowboarding (our teenager) here in January. The lessons were well done. It was a little crowded while lessons were going on but first thing in the morning or later in the afternoon were better. Night skiing was good.

Been here in the winter and summer and have always had a blast. Very reasonable prices for the value you get from the resort. Never a long line up to get up the chairlift and lots of accommodations and restaurants close by. We stayed at the tamarack club. Worth the drive from Canada!

We love that this is small family-oriented resort that is easy to get around, and fun for all ages, and also has several lodges. You will never park too far from the lifts. But, it is also a very good size mountain, with 58 trails of all kinds. It really is the best of both worlds. We stayed at the... More

The skiing at Holiday Valley is as good as anything we've experienced in this region. Obviously the hills aren't comparable to the rockies but the groomed runs usually have good coverage and the glades are a lot of fun

We spent three days skiing here. Despite a few weather glitches, we had a great time. The staff at Creekside was great. My teenagers took lessons from Bert and Bob, who were both fantastic! Great value for a family of 4!

We just recently went skiing at this resort and all of us were pretty happy. I just had two complaints. Pros: very pretty settings and nice lodges. All the lodges are very nicely done and look on the newer side. It is a pleasure to sit inside and eat lunch. The trails have something to offer for all kinds of... More
