Depends what time of the year you are there. Spring is the best. The cloud spin lodge is great for a beer or two as well. Slides are the best if you can get there when they are open.

Love this resort!!! Went every powder day last year and can’t get enough of it. Probably driving up there today to see the snowfall as they get the mountain ready for the 17/18 ski season.

Whiteface is a great mountain to develope your skills at. The conditions are usually great and there is a wide variety of terrain to choose from. The staff is professional and the scenery is the best New York has to offer.

I love Lake Placid, and nearby Whiteface Mountain. Lake Placid has put many years of effort into making itself a beautiful and desirable destination. And while you will still find the tacky t-shirt shop, they have a lot more

I love it. No lift lines, great vert. a bit icy at times but well worth the drive.

My experience at Whiteface has always been a fantastic one. I have always enjoyed my time on the mountain except sometimes it can get quite icy. But I’ve been going there for years now and will continue to go for years to come!

Skiing at Whiteface is a quintessential Eastern US experience. You have The Slides, icy conditions, terrain parks for those who want - not me and some great cruisers. Be careful on cold windy days!

Only two hours from the house and they have the best kids learning area that I have ever seen and I have been to more than my fair share of ski resorts.

Simply put, the best challenging terrain on the east. Can drive from NY. The nostolgic olympic village has great food, cheap lodging, good nightlife, and plenty of activities off the mountain. Perfect in winter or summer. Village is always filled with nice people Local & tourist)ready to spark up a conversation.
