Strap on your Anon goggles and check out Holiday Valley’s newly rebuilt snowboard terrain park (four-hour weekend lift passes, $53; ski and snowboard equipment rental, $23 to $31). Two new trails bring the total count to over 50, plus there’s a steep new snow-tubing park and high-speed quad chairlifts from the recent $4 million upgrade.
Roll with the Cattaraugus County Federation of Snowmobiles, which maintains 415 miles of groomed trails. Buy an annual membership with one of the nine clubs—the Tri-County Drifthoppers ($30) and the Enchanted Mountains Border Riders Club ($25) to name a few—for access to their fleet of vehicles, trails, and jointly hosted events.
Slush past sculpture by the likes of Dwayne Hatchett and Mehrdad Hadighi at Griffis Sculpture Park ($5 admission), a 425-acre mountainside park filled with contemporary installations. It closes up for most of the winter but offers occasional full-moon snowshoe excursions with live music and piping hot chili ($50; next one on February 7, 5–8 p.m.).
