Welcome to HoliMont

For over 50 years, families and snowsports enthusiasts from miles around have converged on HoliMont – North America’s largest private ski resort devoted to family skiing adventures.

Generations of members have been drawn in by the amazing skiing, only to fall in love with the warm, community atmosphere that makes HoliMont the kind of place you never want to leave.

After witnessing the Winter Olympics at Lake Placid in 1932, William Merk, founder of HoliMont, was inspired to pursue his passion for skiing in the Ellicottville area. After skiing for years with the Ellicottville Ski Club on Fish Hill and throughout the Greer and Holiday Valley areas, he decided to start a private ski club. Read more about the Ski Club’s beginnings

There’s no reason why adventures need to be saved for the weekend. Every day is a day to be remembered at HoliMont.  And since HoliMont is open to Non-Members every Monday – Friday (except for the week between Christmas and New Years) you now have the opportunity of experiencing HoliMont numerous times throughout the season.

Our Weekday Experience Pass is the ideal way for you to get 10 weekdays of skiing and/or riding, as well as 5 group clinics at a minimal cost.

Run after run, HoliMont will make your day. No long lines. No crowds. Just you and the excitement of the slopes. Plus More!
