Chautauqua - Allegheny

Live your loveliest winter dreams!

Horse-drawn sleighrides in a Victorian village, skiing in fresh powder, fireside dining at country inns. Sugar-on-snow parties at a maple farm, holiday shopping in Amish Country, birding in tranquil nature centers, sliding down a 750-foot tubing hill, laughing all the way! All of these activities are hallmarks of winter in Chautaugua-Allegheny.

Tucked into the serene landscape of Western New York, discover friendly villages, unique attractions and scenic Lake Erie Wine Country. A yearly 200 inches of lake-effect snow sets a perfect scene for XC skiing!

Lively festivals include Winter Carnivals at Holiday, Peak'n Peak and Swain Mountain Resort.

With so much to do, you'll want to stay a while!  Choose from slopeside resorts, charming B&Bs, and cozy lakeside cabins.
