Gowanda Recreation Department

Learn to Ski

Learn to Ski:

The first Gowanda Recreation Learn to Ski registration at Holiday Valley will take place in the Village of Gowanda board room at 27 East Main Street on Monday, October 26 from 6 to 7:30 pm.

  • Due to COVID 19 we DO NOT have use of Gowanda Central School busses so parents will have to transport their children to and from Holiday Valley. We are in the process of creating a waiver that parents can sign in order to transport their children and/or relatives or a friend’s child.
  • PARENTS of registered skiers/snowboarders CAN ALSO SIGN UP and receive the same following discounts as their child(ren). This has been approved by Holiday Valley.
  • Gowanda Recreation will give the first FORTY registered skiers/snowboarders (parents/children) a $40 discount off of their Lift Ticket. Everyone that needs to rent equipment will pay the regular amount ($119). However, that amount is unlimited for the entire season on Sunday afternoon and NOT just 8 weeks as was the previous agreement. 
  • Registration- children as early as age 8 through 18.(Grades 3-12)
  • The cost for a lift ticket that is good for EVERY Sunday afternoon with Holiday Valley’s $10 discount if registered BEFORE November 1 and Gowanda Recreation’s $40 discount  brings the total to just $125. How can you beat that price!
  • We understand the hardships that some children may have trying to find transportation to Holiday Valley this year. Hopefully, parents can get together and help find rides for those who may otherwise be left out. Students enrolled in our program are prohibited from driving to and from Holiday Valley. This is strictly for insurance reasons. Those that disobey this rule will be immediately terminated from the program with no refund.
  • Lift ticket badges will be distributed as soon as they are received by me in the village office. No one will have to wait until January to receive their lift badge.
  • Everyone can also come and go as they please (arrive later, leave early or leave later) and not have to worry about bus departures. You may also go to Holiday Valley on just the Sundays that are most convenient for you.

In summary, those that register on October 26 from 6 to 7:30 pm will pay $125 for a lift ticket good for the entire season on Sunday afternoons and $119 for unlimited rental equipment if needed. Helmets can also be rented for $25 (unlimited use).
