Ellicottville, N.Y. (WBEN) - It's almost GO time at Holiday Valley.

"We just decided today to open for a preview weekend this Saturday and Sunday," said spokeswoman Jane Eshbaugh. That's a week earlier than their initial plans. 

The resort will close briefly after this weekend and re-open for the regular season on Black Friday, November 29th. 

"The last couple of weeks have been really cold. We were able to make a lot of snow," said Eshbaugh.  300 acre-feet of snow.  That's like 300 acres covered by a foot of snow. "We're grooming it and spreading it over six slopes," she said.  

Beginner terrain, Mardi Gras, Yodeler, Candy Cane, Crystal and Sugar Plum will be open with three lifts.  

Holiday Valley will be open this Saturday from 8:30am to 10pm and Sunday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. 

It's the resort's 62nd season.
