Short lines, family friendly, nice lodge
Limited terrain, private resort
I've been skiing at HoliMont since I was a little kid. It's where I learned to ski and I try to go back at least once a year. The atmosphere is wonderful and the lines are never very long. This is largely due to the fact that it's a private resort. They're open to the public on weekdays but you need to know a member to go on a weekend. Being a private club, it can be a little snooty, but that's a minor complaint. The terrain is nice and very well kept, but it is fairly limited in variety. The lodge is spacious and very nice and Ellicottville is a great little town with awesome nightlife.
