Ellicottville is in the Southern Tier and at the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains making it a top destination for skiers.
This year, skiing and festive spirit are joining forces with the first ski tree in Ellicottville.
Crews have been working since seven in the morning on Tuesday.
John Nelson and Tyler burns of Ellicottville Entertainment came up with the idea to bring the ski tree to the ski town after seeing one in Colorado a few years ago.
The ski tree is 31 feet tall and has more than 400 skis on it.
Nelson says people in the community as well as ski shops donated the skis.
The lighting of the tree is expected to take place at 6:30 p.m. on Friday at the 1887 Building lawn in Ellicottville.
