Holiday Valley Mudslide 2012

Video of people of all ages getting muddy, exercise and having fun at the 1st Annual Holiday Valley Mudslide!

The first annual Holiday Valley Mudslide is a mudrun that's FUN. Yes, you'll get muddy, yes there is running, yes there are 8 obstacles but NO fire, NO barbed wire and NO electric shocks! The 3.5 mile course starts at the top of the mountain at Spruce Lake (we'll even give you a ride up on a chairlift) and runs along the ridgeline then down the hill. The 5.4 mile course adds a bit of uphill running, just in case you're feeling especially tough.

Thanks to all who participated! Can't wait for next year!

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams.

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
