Smaller and fewer runs, but far less line-ups. Great for families. Even though Private, newcomers felt welcome. Food offerings were excellent. Get there early to find a good place to store your stuff while skiing.

Skiied here several times over the past winter. Although the eastern winter of 2015-16 was weak to say the least, this place really came through. Expected a lot of ice, but the grooming was superb and the staff was great! Private on weekends and holidays; but during the week, you will feel as though holimont exists solely for you! NO... More

North face slopes hold the snow, great fall line skiing and riding. Slopes seem to progress from easy to headrest as you go from skiers left to right. Great food in lodge, nice friendly staff. Your will be impressed.

Private ski area but open to the public area M - F. No lift lines, great skiing and suburb grooming. No night skiing because it doesn't have lights but won't stop your fun.

My new favorite ski destination. Rented a place slopeside and loved it. For a weekend, this place was not crowded at all. Great mix of skiing and terrain for all skill levels.

About an hour drive south of Buffalo New York, among many farms and forested hills, a small town lies in a valley of the Appellation Mountains. Although this small town of Ellicottville is nearly vacant during the summer months, it booms with life during the winter. Every weekend people from as far as Toronto and Cleveland speed down the NY... More

There was so much snow and it had gotten very clumpy. After one run we were not given a refund. A gift certificate was given that I passed on to a friend as I will not be skiing again this year.

Open to the public on weekdays. Hills are well groomed, good selection of runs. Staff are very friendly. Fun to see everyone in the main lodge with their tablecloths, crockpots and wine for lunch. You would not try that in a public lodge! Place has grown huge since I used to ski here as a kid. Always enjoyed coming up... More

Avid skier of 35 years - I had heard of this place but though it was strictly private. I have come to know that it's open to the public Monday - Fridays. Well here we are late in the season and they are one of the few operating in this region. So I checked it out. My intent was to... More

We usually ski at Holimont when we are in Ellicottville. Great resort, good runs, excellent snow making and grooming. The food in the lodge is excellent and well priced. Our family skied here again this past February long weekend and really loved the atmosphere very family oriented. The staff are great they treat you like family.I would highly recommend Holimont...
