Winter Outdoor Activities at SnowPine (When Mother Nature Cooperates) January 18, 2017
While most of you are aware that skiing and snowboarding are SnowPine Village’s main draw with it’s truly ski in, ski out location but did also know that there are several other Winter activities that a stay at SnowPine Village can offer for you to experience.
Just a few miles away at Allegany State Park there are a plethora of opportunities to enjoy many outdoor activities like snowshoeing , cross country skiing and snowmobiling. Allegany State Park offers over 35 miles of well-marked cross country and snow shoeing trails through gorgeous wooded areas that break out into some of the most stunning views in region. If you are a snowmobiling fan you can spend a whole day cruising their groomed trails. Cross country ski and snowshoe rentals are available at their shop conveniently located by the trails.
If snowmobiling is really what gets you excited about winter than staying at SnowPine Village while you experience all that Cattaraugus County itself has to offer in terms of snowmobile trails, will certainly not disappoint. There are over 350 miles of trails that you can ride throughout the county and you can pick up these trails basically right across from SnowPine Village. Don’t forget we have many different options available that can accommodate event the largest of groups. While Mother Nature seems to have taken a little break from dumping snow on us and the trails are currently closed, you can bet that she will be back at it again and the trails will all be open before you know it. You can get all of the latest trail conditions, maps, licensing requirements and any other information that you may need regarding snowmobiling in the area right here: http://enchantedmountains.com/activity/snowmobiling
There are also snowshoeing and cross country skiing options available to you literally right out your door when you are staying at a SnowPine condo. You can snowshoe right up the side of the slopes to connect to the groomed cross country trails at the top of the hill. If you just prefer to cross country ski, you can purchase a cross country ticket for a nominal fee of $12 per day at Holiday Valley which allows you to ride the life up so you can enjoy all of the invigorating and scenic trails at the top of the hill. Holiday Valley also has a very nice loop of trail on the front nine of the golf course, which you can access from the Inn or right at the entrance to SnowPine Village. Rentals are also available at Holiday Valley for just $18 per day. See all of Holiday Valley’s information right here: http://www.holidayvalley.com/winter/cross-country-skiing/
For all of the SnowPine visitors who would like to try some “less strenuous” outdoor activities this winter there are also some fun options for you to experience. Holiday Valley Tubing Park should definitely be a priority on your list. The Tubing Park at Holiday Valley is the 5th largest tubing park in the US and is located on the corner of Rt. 242 and Bryant Hill Road, just 4 miles from Holiday Valley and a FREE shuttle runs every two hours that they are open. (inquire at Holiday Valley) The park is usually open Thursday thru Sunday with additional hours during holiday weekends. (again as long as Mother Nature is cooperating) Please check the website here for hours and rates: http://www.holidayvalley.com/winter/tubing/
Last but not least, for some exhilarating winter fun is Holiday Valley’s Mountain coaster! This Mountain Coaster is a type of roller coaster that is low to the ground and follows the contours of the natural terrain, zig zagging and spiraling down the the side of the mountain. You may ride alone or with a friend in a small“car” attached to rails that pulls you up the hill, then your off and following the track back down. You can control your speed with levers on the sides of the car so even the faintest of heart will enjoy this outdoor adventure. The coaster runs 11am- 6pm Friday through Sunday and although somewhat weather dependant it relies a lot less on Mother Nature than the rest of the winter outdoor activities. Please call Holiday Valley for rates. (716)699-2345.
