Holiday Valley has been ranked the 6th best ski resort in the Eastern U.S. in the annual Ski Magazine survey. It's an amazing recognition considering the quality of eastern skiing, like the front-four at Stowe the expanse of Killington Mountain and the steep of Jay Peak.
But a successful ski resort has to be much more than just 'steep and deep.' Holiday Valley’s rankings in the survey include 1st in the East for lifts and 1st for service, 3rd for lodging, 5th for access and après ski, 7th for family programs, 8th for dining and off hill activities, 10th for weather, 11th for grooming and digital presence, 12th for terrain parks, on-mountain food and character, 13th for overall satisfaction and 14th for snow.
And it's only 45 minutes from Buffalo. Oooo yeah.
