We anticipate posting more short video clips from the DVD for your viewing in the near future. Obviously to get the whole history you will need to order the DVD.

Just some of the items on the DVD:

  • Interviews with some of the founders and early skiers at Holiday Valley including Edna and John Northrop and Dutch and Rita Wolf.
  • Interviews with Olympian Jill Vogtli and President Dennis Eshbaugh.
  • Interviews with Shad and Trey talking about the evolution and future of free ride and boarding.
  • Video from the "early days". Some really natty equipment and garb to match! It looks like the early folks partied as much as the current gang!
  • Narrated videos and still photos from every decade of the resort.
  • And much, much, more...
