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

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!

1st Annual HoliCross Cyclocross Race

Join us for the 1st Annual HoliCross Race

HoliMont is hosting its first Cyclocross event this fall. This is a race you don’t want to miss. A fun and challenging course has been mapped out at the bottom of the Sunset chair lift area. It will keep your ticker pounding with climbing zig-zags, hairpin turns and fast descents. Spectators will be able to see most of the action and the backdrop should be in full Technicolor courtesy the changing leaves. The race also lands right in the middle of Fall Festival Weekend. Like you needed one more excuse to come to EVL that weekend? Grab a place to stay and make a weekend of it. You better act quick cause rooms are a hot commodity. Don’t forget the Fall Fest mountain bike race Sunday at Holiday Valley sponsored byHeartrateup.com.

Registration is available through BikeReg. This event requires a license. One day licenses are available at sign-up or you can buy an annual license from USA Cycling. Stay on top of all the latest info by visiting the event Facebook page.
