It’s that time of year in Ellicottville when the weather has started to shift towards warmer longer days yet you can still find quite cool nights and even the odd patch of snow still remaining on the hills. It’s seems like everyone has spring cleaning and gardening on the mind and while those things need to be done, SnowPine Village is still a great place to getaway to for some outdoor adventures!
First of all, believe it or not…the Double Black Diamond golf course at Holiday Valley is open and it’s a wonderful time of year to get out there and work on your swing. In case you haven’t had the opportunity to play a round at Holiday Valley’s, this is one course you don’t want to miss. The Double Black Diamond course was nominated by Golf Magazine '09 as one of the best redesigns in the country. Gather a group of guys or girls for a golf getaway weekend now while the weather offers the perfect temperature (not too hot, not too cold) to really enjoy the course!

The Sky High Adventure Park will be officially opening for weekend adventures on May 5th and open daily starting June 16th and ADVENTURE it truly is! Located near the Tannenbaum Lodge at the western end of Holiday Valley, Sky High offers an Aerial Park, a Climbing Forest and a Mountain Coaster. With 13 courses with varying levels of difficulty Holiday Valley’s Sky High Adventure park is the largest in New York State and 3rd largest adventure park in the US and it’s so much fun as well as quite the challenge.
Spring in Ellicottville just wouldn’t be Spring without a fun running event to get everyone moving. On May 13th Holiday Valley will be hosting the Happy Half and Beer Mile runs. You can also run a 5k if that distance appeals to you more. There will be custom designed medals as well as men’s and women’s specific shirts for both 1/2 Marathon and 5k finishers as well as an after party sponsored by Southern Tier Brewery. This event will be so much fun for participants and spectators alike so starting planning now to get booked into a SnowPine Village condo for some Springtime Mud Season fun!
