Whiteface has the greatest vertical east of the Rockies. More vertical equals longer runs, less time on lifts, no crowds, and endless fun. Whiteface is big, with a diversity of terrain for every level, offering a significant degree of steeps, with access to the slides off the Summit Quad. Wide groomers abound on our 22 miles of trails and Powder stashes in our 53 acres of glades. Our dedicated Bear Dean Learning Center, located just off the beaten path, creates a comfortable environment for your first time on the slopes. At Whiteface, there is always more to explore on our 91 trails, which means a safer, more solitary mountain experience for you.
