There's a bunch of places in WNY. You can check out the WNY/CNY meets thread for more info. I have a pass to Kissing Bridge in Colden, it's a smaller resort but still very good imo. Kissing Bridge - Western New York Snowboard & Ski Slopes. Also there is Holiday Valley in Ellicotville, Holiday Valley | Home. They are probly the main Buffalo area resorts. Towards Rochester there is Bristol Mntn, the largest vert in WNY 1500'. And Swain, um no quick plug for these guys I've never been there nor done much research on them. Lemme know if you're planning on hitting up one of these places as I go out about twice a week lately.
cool thanks so much for the info. i already knew about swain and bristol and my mum had said something about kissing bridge yesterday but she wasn't sure if it was still open or not. my boyfriend is coming up in jan. so I wanna be able to go some where decent with him cause he is used to the hills of NH and MA.
