The biggest winter biker party is back for the second year in a row. Holiday Valley and Gowanda Harley-Davidson are teaming up to bring back Harley-Day Valley on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., featuring a variety of all things Harley!

“This is just a fun day at Holiday Valley that has out-of-the-ordinary activities like the Jumpstart, lots of motorcycles on display, people dressed in Harley clothing and a fun band!” said Jane Eshbaugh, marketing director at Holiday Valley.

Last year, hundreds of Harley lovers came out to take part in this fun-filled day, with activities centered on the second floor of the Holiday Valley Lodge.

Visitors will be able to test the Jumpstart motorcycle simulator on the deck of the lodge by going through the gears and making a lot of noise. It’s a great opportunity to sit on a real bike that’s running, but stationery, and learn how to shift through the gears.

Bikes will be on display throughout the resort, including all-new 2014 Harleys. Guests can also purchase Harley-Day Valley merchandise, and enjoy food and drink specials, and the Motorcycle Safety School will be on hand from noon to2 p.m.

In addition, the Harley-Day Valley party runs from 3–7 p.m., also in the Holiday Valley Lodge, featuring live music by The Strangers, and loads of prizes and giveaways.

“This is the biggest cabin fever party in the area, and there’s no better place than Holiday Valley and the partnership with the biggest brand in the world, Harley-Davidson,” said Tim McKeever, marketing manager at Gowanda Harley-Davidson. “Over 800-plus people came out last year, and we can’t wait for another great event!

While at Holiday Valley, visitors can also take advantage of the Learn to Ski or Ride packages at the Creekside Lodge, and save 20 percent off the regular rate during National Learn a Snowsport Month.

Special lodging packages for this action-packed weekend are available by calling (716) 699-2345.
