Whiteface is home to the very best ski experiences the East has to offer!
Wilmington, NY

Overview

We are all drawn here for different reasons; the vertical, powder, groomers, the slides, your desire to learn something new, outdoor adventure, a passion for challenge, our quintessential mountain towns, that view, they all pivot around one thing… Whiteface. Now that you’re here, make Whiteface Mountain your playground.

You know what we’re talking about! The greatest vertical of any lift-serviced mountain in the Northeast, mile after mile of groomed cruisers, 98% snowmaking coverage, renowned side country, and host of the 1980 Olympic Winter Games, all surrounded by some of the best mountain towns in the east. See you soon.

Whiteface is home to the very best ski experiences the East has to offer. Simply put, Whiteface offers more of everything: more snowmaking, more inspiring expert terrain, more long rolling groomers, including the longest single intermediate run in the Northeast, the 2.1-mile long Wilmington Trail; more learning, more adventure, more fun, more off-mountain attractions you can’t find anywhere else, such as bobsledding down an Olympic track or groomed Nordic skiing or strolling through the lakeside Olympic village. And, more hotel and dining options than you’ll find in any hamlet in southern Vermont.

In the summertime, you’ll find great activities and adventures for the whole family at Whiteface, from the Adventure Zone and Guided Hikes to scenic Cloudsplitter Gondola Rides. In the fall, take a drive up the Veterans’ Memorial Highway to the summit of Whiteface for breathtaking views of Adirondack fall foliage!
