Is winter a season you actually look forward to rather than dread?  Does the prospect of putting snow tires on your vehicle put a big grin on your face?  Is a new set of skis or a snowboard deck your idea of the perfect holiday gift?  Do you daydream about the perfect powder day with no lift lines and no crowds?  If so, then HoliMont Ski Area might just be the place for you. 
Looking for another way to hit the slopes for a good cause? The sixth annual Ski Day For United Way takes place Thursday, March 7 at HoliMont Ski Area in Ellicottville.
Constance Searby questioned it, skeptical of its feasibility, but, within a weekend, she became a believer and an advocate of HoliMont’s Phoenix Adaptive Ski Program.  “My son Wil joined the program after a friend invited us up,” Searby said. “We were skeptical, but thought it would be fun for him to try a new activity. By the end of the weekend he was on tethers, going down the Bunny Hill and Chipmunk. We were sold and signed up the next year.”

Is winter a season you fully look forward to rather than dread?  Does the prospect of putting snow tires on your vehicle put a smile on your face?  Would a new set of skis or a snowboard deck be your idea of the perfect holiday gift?  Do you daydream about the perfect powder day with no lift lines and no crowds?  If so, then HoliMont Ski Area might just be the place for you.  

 

Throw determination, character, a commitment to excellence together with skill, motivation and a heart for the sport, and that's all you need for a team to take FLITE.  The FLITE Team, run by former U.S. Ski Team members Corey and Kelly Hacker, is a group of skiers, ages 8 to 17, dedicated to developing and improving their abilities all while meeting new friends, learning life-long lessons and making memories to last a lifetime. 

 

The art of ski racing runs deep in HoliMont's blood.  What started as a low-key organization back in the 60's has evolved over the years into one of the strongest racing programs in NYS.  The 2012'-13 season promises to be an exciting one for the Racing Program.  Many of the athletes have been participating in rigorous off-season training activities with Coach Travis Widger and are now primed to show off their racing skills.

In 1962 a small group of people embarked on a venture that would eventually change the lives of tens of thousands of people.  These people, all skiing enthusiasts, loved skiing but were growing tired of waiting in line at the increasingly popular nearby ski area.  They began to envision an area that provided a family-friendly atmosphere that was void of the lift lines.  

The sun is still shining brightly and the days are still (relatively) warm, but the snow will be flying before we know it.  No one knows this better than the people involved in the ski industry. Here at HoliMont we are gearing up for an amazing 50th Anniversary season.

Remember last ski season? You’re forgiven if you’ve decided to strike it from your memory due to the less than “winter-like” winter we had here in Western New York. Anyway, no sooner had HoliMont officially shut the lifts down for the season than it began tearing down the Expo lift right outside of the Chalet.

The HoliFare Cookbook continues its efforts in raising money for the adaptive ski program at HoliMont. The cookbook, which is offered for sale in many locations throughout Ellicottville, is comprised of over 175 pages of recipes submitted by HoliMont members and friends.
