On December 24, HoliMont officially opened for the season. While it’s been a rough start to winter here in Ellicottville, slowly but surely more and more members made their way to the chalet and took their first turns of the season on the slopes of HoliMont.
As the Christmas week progressed, chalet activity became more active and Mother Nature started treating us to some colder temperatures and even a little bit of natural snow, all of which was a welcome sight to everyone at HoliMont.
As of this writing, we are making snow throughout much of the area and should have solid snowmaking opportunities through the beginning of the New Year.
We would like to thank all of you who patiently waited for HoliMont to be able to make snow and get the area open. While we never want the season to start off slow, we are confidently hopeful that Mother Nature will make up the difference for us and treat us to some fantastic snowmaking weather and an abundance of immaculate fresh snow.
Finally, we’d also like to thank everyone who came out for opening day. It’s been great seeing people back in the chalet and out on the slopes and we’re looking forward to spending the ski season with you.
