Travel Guide

Ellicottville which includes street scenes

Known for its ski slopes but offering so much more, the charming town of Ellicottville has year-round activities and an invigorating alpine atmosphere.

Surrounded by the “Enchanted Mountains” of western New York State, Ellicottville is an ideal base for lovers of the outdoors. Explore the surrounding countryside on foot, horseback or a pair of skis. The scenic area especially comes to life in fall, when the trees burst into color and the town celebrates the season with a big party.

In winter, speed down the slopes at Holiday Valley and HoliMont ski areas. Gentle runs that wind through the trees are suitable for beginners, while expert black runs will keep experienced skiers challenged. Holiday Valley also offers snow tubing and all the twisting, turning fun of the Sky Flyer Mountain Coaster.

Test your courage at Sky High Adventure Park, a high ropes obstacle course with several difficulty levels. Ellicottville also offers less intense sporting activities, such as golf, hiking and horseback riding.

Wander around town admiring the 19th-century buildings. Relax in the tranquil Nannen Arboretum, an attractive conservation area in Ellicottville’s center. Head 8 miles (13 kilometers) north of the city to Griffis Sculpture Park and admire contemporary artwork set amid the rolling, tree-covered hills.

Taste local lager at Ellicottville Brewery, where brewers produce craft beers of multiple flavors. Tours of the brewery take visitors behind the scenes to see how beer and ale are made. The tours run on the weekends and participants are given samples as well as a commemorative glass. Have a gourmet lunch or dinner at the brewery followed by a decadent dessert.

Experience the legendary autumn colors of western New York at Ellicottville's annual Fall Festival. Every October, the streets fill with vendors and local venues ring with the sounds of talented musicians. During the day, the chairlifts run up the mountain, providing views of the resplendent gold, red and brown valley foliage.

If you are reaching the area by plane, you will most likely fly into Buffalo Niagara International Airport, a 1-hour drive north of Ellicottville.

Appreciate Ellicottville as a town for all seasons, with each time of year offering unique reasons to visit this lively mountain destination.
