Holiday Valley's Winter Carnival 2019

Is there a better way to start bringing the winter fun to a close in Ellicottville than Winter Carnival Weekend? We can’t think of anything either! Head to their part of the Enchanted Mountains March 8th-10th to be a part of the festivities and fun!

Madigan's, a local hot spot in the Village, will host the Mardi Gras Weekend Kick Off Party on Friday (8th), with music, fun, and the announcement of King and Queen!  Cost is $10 at the door and details can be found on their Facebook

Holiday Valley Ski Resort will host numerous activities throughout Saturday and Sunday (9th-10th).  It's the biggest winter event of the season there with fun activities and events for the whole family. Highlights include the Snowbar at Yodeler with music and fun, the costume parade on Sunday where the winner gets a season pass for next year, and everyone's favorite, the Dummy Downhill!  The Dummy Downhill has a $5 entry fee and starts at 1pm at the base of Yodeler on Sunday.  You bring your hand-constructed dummy (see regulations and application), get him/her inspected, then when the race begins, send down the hill!
