Attention Snow Bunnies: If you love spending snowy winter days on the slopes, this event is totally for you! On Friday, February 9, head to Holiday Valley for a day full of skiing, snowboarding, drinking, and camaraderie. Mountain Man Day is ALL about embracing the winter weather.

Eat, drink, and hit the slopes! Activities begin at 10 a.m. and continue through 5 p.m. Your admission ticket includes skiing and riding, lessons, rental skis, race lessons, slalom racing, and ski demos from local shops. Plus, a catered lunch at the Holiday Valley Lodge T-Bar. Yum!

What’s the best way to warm up after a morning spent on the slopes? Tastings of course! Try beers, wines, and liquors from the local breweries, distilleries, and wineries we know and love. Southern Tier Brewing and Distillery, Ellicottville Brewing Company, Tommyrotter Distillery, Lockhouse Distillery, and local wineries have already RSVP-ed.

While you’re tasting, you’ll get to enjoy live music from Jelly Jar. Get excited for hand-rolled cigars, free gifts and amazing door prizes, too.
