It’s been a very odd season to say the least. The temperature has spent more time jumping up and down than the FLITE Team this year but through it all, HoliMont has persevered. In fact, all things considered, this season couldn’t have gone any better. The slopes were in great condition all season long, the Terrain Parks looked better than ever and had some awesome new features to play on, and from a social standpoint the Club never missed a beat. The social season started off with the New Year’s Family Party, followed by The Board of Directors Party, then the Margaritaville Party, Men’s Day, Ladies Day, Winter Break Week, Canadian Spring Break, St. Patrick’s Day Party…and many, many Après Parties and other fantastic Club events in between.
Once again Kid’s Escaping Drugs was here for its annual SkiScape event at the beginning of the year and the United Way took over HoliMont near the end of the season for its annual fundraising event. Both events went off without a hitch and helped bring awareness to some excellent organizations.
The Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce hosted its Chamber Day at HoliMont where Chamber members and their guests were able to come enjoy a day on the slopes and then kick back to the tunes of The Party Squad in the afternoon. Despite some inclement weather, this yearly event was still a blast for everyone involved.
Even with a serious lack of cooperation from Mother Nature the 2011-12 season was still a success. HoliMont Members brought their friends to the Club and introduced them to the HoliMont experience. Weekday Pass Holders were treated to some incredible days of bluebird skiing and riding. The HoliMont Phoenix Adaptive Program continued to break down barriers and prove that snow sports truly are an issue of mind over matter. The FLITE Team coaches helped their athletes reach new heights while the Racing Program coaches experienced all kinds of success with their up-and-coming athletes. As always, the HoliMont Ski School did an amazing job of introducing new people to the snow sports lifestyle while also helping those who already have the skiing/snowboarding bug improve on their skill set.
We would like to thank all of you who came to HoliMont this year. Members, Guests, Weekday Passholders and everyone else who was able to come out and enjoy themselves here on the slopes…we thank you! We hope you had as much fun this season as we did. We’re looking forward to doing it all over again next season…this time with a little more help from Mother Nature. Have an excellent summer everyone.
