Special Notes

  • Know Before You Go

How will locker rooms operate?

We are asking guests to limit their time in locker rooms and to wear face coverings (masks) at all times. Avoid crowded areas and allow time for others to exit before entering.

What about when the weather is bad? Can I go indoors?

Our lodges will be open for you to warm up. However, we are asking guests to limit their time indoors. This winter will be more about skiing and riding, and less about socializing inside.

Good Day skiers and riders! This is Erik with your Whiteface Insider Snow Cast for Sunday February 28, 2021. It’s Ski and Ride day 86 of the season! As the weekend and February come to close, why not head to the mountain and give them both a proper send off? Our groomers have smoothed out over 60 trails for your skiing & riding pleasure today. From beginner to expert, we have trails for the whole family and experience level. More trails mean more time outdoors. For your outdoor recreational activities, we anticipate 10 lifts and 83 trails open on packed powder & frozen granular conditions. Today’s weather will be mostly cloudy, with a high near 42. 30 percent chance of showers, mainly after 5pm. You’ve got skiing and riding to do but you’re hungry, well we’ve got options. We offer deliciously made to order, freshly prepared meals for on-mountain carryout. Freshies to Go is an in-app ordering service, with convenient pick-up at the solarium in our Base Camp Market. Face coverings must always properly cover your nose and mouth with two or more layers of protection. Masks that have holes for your mouth or nose or single-layer buffs will not satisfy the mask requirement at Whiteface. Know before you go What about when the weather is bad? Can I go indoors? Our lodges will be open for you to warm up. However, we are asking guests to limit their time indoors. This winter will be more about skiing and riding, and less about socializing inside. While winter may look a little different this year, the same outdoor adventure, scenic vistas, and snowy terrain that we all love awaits! These measures are in place for everyone’s health and safety so we can all continue to enjoy our outdoor recreational activity here at Whiteface. Review our Operational Updates page for more safety information to best prepare for your visit. Thank you for listening, and we’ll see you on the slopes.
