Frequent Skier cards are available for reduced lift ticket rates for skiing & riding. These cards are available through December 15th, or while supplies last. This coming Sunday is Santa Sunday at Whiteface. Dust off your finest Mr. or Mrs. Claus suit and get a FREE lift ticket for the day! Participate in a group photo and a lap down excelsior at the top of Little Whiteface at 11:00 am. Know Before You Go: Buying tickets online in advance is still required. You will be unable to purchase in-person tickets, so plan accordingly. Skiers Responsibility Code states: Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others. Sun Safety: Exposure to UV rays increases by up to 5% for every 1,000 feet above sea level. Snow also presents further risk as it can reflect UV rays, sometimes up to 80%! This means that when spending time outdoors in the snow, you need to protect your skin! Before you head to the mountain make sure to pack sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to maximize your fun in the sun. Know the Zone: Every skier/rider gets 15 feet of space. While on the hill avoid collisions by giving others 15 feet of space on all sides. If kids are present, go slower & give them even more room. Know that skiers/riders can turn suddenly, so stay in control to obey the 15-foot zone. Thank you for listening, and we’ll see you on the slopes.
