    The view of Holimount from downtown Ellicottville is a good view. The pic is from a gas station and it is not good as it is from thr main street .image

    JimK: Hunter does loom rather steep above the highway, but it's the ugliest ski hill I've ever seen.

    As with your Mt. Bachelor experience, approaching Sugarloaf in the 1970s it was always "Yes!! The gondola's running!" Or not.

    It's a good view of the mountain, but I wouldn't describe Holiday Valley as "awe inspiring". ;)) It's similar to how you can see Arrowhead well from downtown Claremont.

    Surprised nobody has mentioned Whiteface. Coming back on 9N to 86 there are some prominent views of the whole Whiteface range. That is a big mountain and at 800 feet above sea level past Jay, NY Whiteface is over 4k feet of vertical.

    Greer Hill does look good from town. I hiked it a long time ago and appreciated the view from up there over the village. Also find the lights for night skiing to be kind of outworldly coming down 219-- very Close Encounters like when everythings aglow. Awesome in a snowstorm.
