Holiday Valley in Ellicottville, NY opens this Friday!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Holiday Valley in Ellicottville, NY is opening this Friday with no less than 5 lifts! One of their better openings in recent years.  I am going with a couple of buds on Saturday for my first turns of the season.  This will be an extra special ski day for me as I will get to ski on my Birthday!!!  Living where I do I don't often get the opportunity to do that and can not remember the last time I did.  Must be at least 20 years ago.  So I am very excited like a little kid on Christmas Eve who can't wait for the morning to open his gifts.

 

As an extra special bonus, I will be skiing on my brand new RTM 81's which were an early birthday gift to myself.

 

Is it Saturday yet?

 

Ski On!

Gee Rick!  You might miss Black Friday shopping fun. :eek

 

Sounds great.  Looks like 7-Springs will also open and we are getting pretty good snow here a the edge of the Laurel Highlands.

 

Happy birthday!

Nice early start for sure at both HV and 7 Springs. Conditions should be very good with a decent amount of terrain being opened.

We dodge the opening day WORD which is a real bonus for sure.

I skied at HV in the late 60's early 70's as a kid living about an hour away in NW Pa. Anyway I can remember there was a year in there when HV got a big snowstorm right after Halloween and opened the next week and stayed open continuously through March.

Maybe a couple of seasons since 1980 skiing at Seven Springs when we got off to a great Thanksgiving start. Guessing maybe 4-5 times.

Hopefully we get a long and good condition sustained season this year here in the"Banana Belt"
