About Our Patrol
Holiday Valley Resort in Ellicottville, NY has a highly experienced patrol, with members averaging 18 years of ski patrol service. The skill level of Holiday Valley patrollers is so high that 35 of 113 members hold National Ski Patrol instructor certification qualifying them to train and evaluate patrollers. Every year, Holiday Valley hosts first aid, skiing & snowboarding, and toboggan-handling training events for patrollers from other resorts.  
All Holiday Valley ski patrollers have completed a thorough, demanding training program. We further refine our skills annually through ongoing training in skiing or snowboarding, toboggan handling, first aid, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automatic external defibrillation (AED), lift evacuation, and snowmobile operations.
