Happy news coming out of the great ski town of Ellicottville, New York today: The city’s local ski resort, Holiday Valley, will be opening this Thursday.  Three quad chairlifts and ten slopes will be open, as guests can enjoy skiing and boarding from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.  Lift tickets will start at $47 for adults and $37 for juniors.  As long as the weather stays cold, snowmaking on the mountain will continue and the goal is to have all 56 slopes and 13 lifts open by Christmas or before.   The photo to the left is of snowmaking on School Haus Beginners Area.
