Happy kids skiing.

Winter 2020/21 Update

Due to current health concerns, we will no longer be offering any group lessons for the 2020/21 season. We currently offer private lessons for all ages and skill levels.  We are monitoring the situation and will update you with decisions regarding lessons as the season progresses. Whiteface knows the past months have been long and uncertain, we understand you have been waiting to get outside and enjoy all winter at Whiteface has to offer. Thank you for continuing to follow the guidelines and protocols being put forth by our public officials. Whiteface and all our Olympic Venues look forward to seeing you soon!
