I skied there on the 14th, the man-made was in great shape which I'm sure got hammered yesterday with the driving rain. Tomorrow is demo day there, still debating on whether to go or not with some friends who are dying to get out. This weather could not be worse.
Holiday Valley Will Open One Week Early
2014-15 Season to Begin Friday, November 21, 2014
(November 18, 2014, Ellicottville, NY…) Holiday Valley’s President and General Manager, Dennis Eshbaugh announced today that the resort will open at 9AM on Friday, November 21. According to Eshbaugh, “We’ve received over 20 inches of snow since last Friday and we were able to fire up the snowguns Monday evening. With round the clock snowmaking, we’ll be able to open a week earlier than planned. What a great way to start the season!”
The resort plans a “Preview Weekend” with 2 lifts running from 9AM to 10PM on Friday and 8:30AM to 10PM on Saturday and Sunday, serving 4 slopes or more, depending on the natural snowfall and snowmaking progress. There will be terrain available for advanced beginners through advanced skiers and snowboarders. The slopes will then be closed from Monday, November 24 through Thursday, and will reopen for the season on Friday, November 28.

Saw those tracks under the chair in in the trees all morning.
Missed opening on Friday, but today's conditions were great! The 7 inches they got Thursday and Friday helped make for a great surface. Giant whales of snow everywhere look like they will be able to battle the rain coming through. Hopefully they will screw up the forecast again on the side of snow.
Good job getting the mountain open!
