Also, Holiday Valley Mountain Resort has announced that it will be extending its 2020-21 Early Ski Pass Sale until June 15th (www.holidayvalley.com/winter/passes). Now not only can you get the best rates on next season's Classic or Ultimate Pass, you can also take advantage of their fee-free installment plan and make four easy payments throughout the summer. And for further peace of mind, if for any reason you are unable to use your pass for the 2020-21 season, you can defer it to 2021-22 as long as you notify them by November 15, 2020.
In addition, HoliMont has extended the 2020-21 Early Bird Special on its Weekday Experience Ski Pass until May 29 (www.holimont.com/product/weekday-experience-pass). The pass includes 10 weekday lift tickets (excluding December 24 - 31), three group ski or snowboard lessons, pass holder discounts, and a credit of up to three vouchers for unused weekday pass punches for the 2019-20 season.
So, let's take advantage of these great savings and support Ellicottville's local merchants to show how much we appreciate their contribution to the community, whether you're an existing resident or contemplating a future move to the area once things open up again. Their ingenuity and creativity continue to ensure that Ellicottville is a great place to be and by showing them our support we can all do our part to make sure it stays that way!
