A great way to tell when the snow melts in Ellicottville is to look at HV's Webcam shot of the moutnain coaster. There is no snow making there, you are only looking at the natural snow conditions

The rain last week has left the snow with a breakable crust making backcountry skiing all but impossible. Dirt forest roads from the end of Rain Trial to HV out to Little Rock City are packed down by snowmobiles and make for great skiing or fat bike riding.

Skiing is fantastic on snowmobile trails behind Holiday Valley. Good skating all the way to Little Rock City.

I am so glad this was the year my office moved to a new building with showers. Got over a hundred miles in this week already doing the commute (on an old steel rigid MTB with panniers).

The trails are so sloppy I've been riding my MTB on the road more than on dirt.

The 1970's: No knee pads, helmets, brakes, or over cautious soccer mom's. It's just how we rolled...

I was in E-ville Friday night. Rained really really hard. Saturday had showers, too. Was back in EA on Sunday, but it seemed like it was raining everywhere on Sunday, too. What a crappy summer.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
