We took a side trip to here while visiting Ellicotville, NY in the summer. This is a very popular ski resort. I came to try the alpine slide - combo luge & roller coaster. Helpful staff and inexpensive. It was a blast.

In the winter you have to stay at the inn. In the summer there is a fee for non-guests to use the pool. It is well worth the fee.
