There’s no place more magical and inviting in wintertime than Ellicottville, N.Y.

Welcome … we’re so happy you’re here!

Step one foot into this charming village and its magical atmosphere will captivate you for all seasons to come. Snow-covered sidewalks, old-fashioned streetlamps, twinkling lights on the village Christmas tree and gazebo, festively decorated shop windows, lively music and delicious smells drifting from the many establishments and restaurants, and plenty of places to tuck yourself in for the night make Ellicottville a year round destination for singles, couples and families who come here year after year.

Holiday Valley and HoliMont — two premier ski resorts that call Ellicottville home — offer an adventure-packed menu of things to do. Enjoy the slopes on alpine or cross-country skis, snowshoe around the Experience Ellicottville’s Four Seasons of Fun and Adventure golf course, take a Mountain Coaster Ride or catch a shuttle to the Ellicottville Tubing Company just a few miles out of town for tubing and ice skating. There’s fun for the whole family.

And remember — all ability levels can enjoy the slopes. The highly trained professionals at Holiday Valley’s Lounsbury Adaptive Program and HoliMont’s Phoenix Adaptive Program teach mentally

and physically challenged persons to ski and board. Give them a call to see what it’s all about.

Whether you’re an adventurous alpine or cross-country skier, ice skater, snowshoe enthusiast, discriminating shopper, history buff, fine art appreciator, snocross racer, alpaca lover, avid bowler, rabid geocacher, expert wine and beer taster — or maybe you just want to enjoy it all from under a warm blanket while you tour the area nestled in a horse-drawn sleigh — this and more are all here for you to enjoy this winter. Make Ellicottville your family’s four-season destination!
