Alpha-Buffalo: E is for Ellicottville
The small village of Ellicottville, New  York, located in nearby Cattaraugus County, had a population of just 376 as of the 2010 census, but hosts many more visitors throughout the year for special events, skiing and more. If you’re looking for a reason to go to Ellicottville, here are a few items of interest on the annual calendar.

There’s plenty of skiing to do, with Holiday Valley located south of the village and HoliMont Ski Club – North America’s largest private ski club – also nearby. These two destinations help make Ellicottville the top tourist destination in Cattaraugus County.

Golfer in the house? In the summer, Holiday Valley is also home to an 18-hole, par 72 golf course, and 10 minutes away is Elkdale Country Club, an 18-hole public course.

Feeling lucky? Check out Seneca Allegany Casino and Hotel, only 15 minutes away.

Throughout the year, there are plenty of weekend festivals in Ellicottville, including Mardi Gras, the Summer Music Festival, Jazz and Blues Weekend, the Taste of Ellicottville, Rock ‘n Roll Weekend,  and the Fall Festival.
