It’s like a bird’s eye view—in flight! Our eight-passenger Cloudsplitter Gondola carries you from the Main Base Lodge to the top of Little Whiteface in fifteen minutes. As you trace the mountain’s contours—soaring over streams, ski trails, steep rock faces and thick forests—the beauty of the Adirondacks reveals itself. You’ll see Lake Placid and its namesake village. To the east lies Lake Champlain, and to the south stands the tallest peaks in New York State. You’ll spot the ski jumps and the Ausable River. At the top, an observation deck and picnic area await you.

For our Cloudsplitter Gondola ride please plan to purchase your tickets on-site at the Whiteface ticket area.

Open Daily 8:30am – 3:15pm, weather and conditions permitting. Be sure to check our conditions page before arrival for the most up-to-date info on Cloudsplitter Gondola rides please visit our Conditions Page.
