Holiday Valley would like extend their gratitude to all guests, employees and all of those who helped make 2017 such a fun an exciting year at the resort. Everyone’s invited to join the fun and ring in the New Year with a night full of skiing, friends and festivities.

The celebration kicks off at 9 p.m. on the Holiday Valley Lodge main floor with a family friendly holiday event, with DJ John Barry.

Cindy’s Lift and the slopes it serves are open until 11 p.m. Anyone who’s an intermediate skier or better is invited to participate in the torchlight parade (hint: wear an old jacket and gloves if you have them, and kids please bring a parent). Meet at the bottom of Cindy’s at 11 p.m. Spectators can watch from the deck of the lodge for a great view of Cindy’s Run and the Groomer Parade at 11:15, the torchlight parade at 11:30, with fireworks to follow at 11:45 p.m. Stick around and enjoy the atmosphere as the party continues until 1 a.m.
