Snowmakers on Upper Valley.

Snowmaking Has Started!

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.

What's Happening...

The anticipated opening day for skiing and riding is Friday, December 4, 2020, with first chair spinning at 8:30 am.

At this time, Friday- Sunday, December 4-6, 2020 access to the mountain will be for those who have a season pass or are using the first day free of their Frequent Skier Card. Availability of additional tickets including e-tickets and Frequent Skier Card reloads will be determined based upon conditions and availability of terrain next week.

These measures are in place for everyone’s health and safety — thank you for your patience and understanding.
