Ellicottville is a quaint little town bursting with activity during its popular winter season. While wintertime is this town’s most popular season, it remains uniquely attractive year-round. Holiday Valley and Holimont serve as the area's two major ski and snowboarding resorts. For all-season fun, both resorts offer a variety of summer activities, including mountain biking, chair lift rides, Holiday Valley's mountain coaster, and ropes course. 

If winter sports are not your thing, exploring the picturesque downtown Ellicottville may be more your style. The picturesque downtown is perfect for a stroll, and local shops display an array of boutique and eclectic items. During the summer, the downtown gazebo features many live music events. Open year-round, Watson’s Chocolates is the perfect spot to enjoy a WNY favorite, sponge candy (among a variety of other candies), and serves ice cream during the warmer months! 

You could also tour the town on a horse-drawn carriage or check out live music during one of the many special event weekends during its season. Ellicottville is the perfect winter getaway; however, it is uniquely attractive for each season and remains active even in the off-season. Chalets, condos, townhomes, and private homes offer a variety of accommodations whether you’re looking for a vacation stay or a forever home.
