New Cloudsplitter Gondola on top of Little Whiteface

Monday, October 12, 2020, was the last day for the summer Gondola Rides.

A fifteen-minute ride gliding through the air in the awe-inspiring natural beauty of the Adirondack Mountain range, the Cloudsplitter Gondola Ride transports visitors from the base of Whiteface Mountain to the peak of Little Whiteface. At the peak itself, look around and you’ll find yourself surrounded by Lake Placid and Lake Placid Village, Lake Champlain and some of the most massive peaks in all of New York State. Not a bad way to start your day at Whiteface Mountain!

These are some of the country’s best views, and this is the best way to see them! At the base of Whiteface Mountain, stop in before or after your gondola ride to the J.LOHR Wine Bar & Cafe for some good eats.
