Western New York has long been known as the snow capital of the state. As the home of Fairway Suites, Chautauqua County, and Clymer, NY specifically, there's an average of 156 inches of snow per year and with all of this snow brings amazing opportunities for the entire family! From skiing and snowboarding to snowmobiling and tubing, the activities are endless and Fairway Suites sits squarely in the middle of it all. While the nationally-acclaimed Chautauqua County Snowmobile Trail intersects our grounds and the ski slopes and trails are less than 400 yards away, relaxing in front of our King Suite fireplaces is a natural fit for rest and relaxation between activities.
With the winter ski season expected to open on December 7th, management at Peek N' Peak Resort has released a statement on Facebook that reads:
“Peek’n Peak Resort is thrilled to announce a projected opening date for the 2018/19 Winter Season of Friday, December 7! We are forecasting that at least 8 trails and 3 lifts will be available on Opening Day for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy. Peek’n Peak is also predicting that the 7-Lane Snow Tubing Arena will open on the seventh as well. Additional slopes, lifts and terrain will be opened soon after. Snowmaking operations have already begun at the resort, which cover the slopes with artificial snow produced by more than 320 snow guns. The expert snowmaking team at Peek’n Peak is preparing to battle temperatures approaching 50 degrees and rainy forecasts through a variety of techniques to reduce snow loss."
With that in mind, it’s time to prep for the winter fun ahead. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, the beautiful landscape comes alive with the enhancement of clean, fresh snow, creating a picturesque setting unique to Chautauqua County and Western NY. You don't have to be an outdoor enthusiast to enjoy a winter getaway here! Enjoying the serene landscape while visiting with friends and family is fun in and of itself! Spend time each other’s company amidst the snow flurries, during the holidays, or at any time throughout the season. Christmas time presents an especially beautiful opportunity to get the full effect of “the snowiest part of Chautauqua County”.
Many travelers set out for a place to stay for Christmas time, and end up making their initial stay into a weeklong getaway to enjoy the best of what both Christmas and New Year’s have to provide. New Year’s Eve is accompanied by all kinds of festivities in the area, culminating with the firework show to kick the year off right! For adults, the local restaurants and bars have an array of food and drink specials that can’t be ignored. For the family, holiday shows including the Tran-Siberian Orchestra, Disney on Ice, and The Nutcracker are all great activities for a night out, and all within a 25 or 30-minute drive. The National Comedy Center’s array of acts, and the Presque Isle Casino are also guest favorites. Plus, the tri-state area's extensive, top-rated shopping centers, combined with the unique locally owned stores and antique marts, not to mention the lower tax rates of our neighbors in Northwest Pennsylvania, make this entire area a shopper's haven that attracts bargain hunters young and old from neighboring states as well as Southern Ontario and Canada.
