Overall

4.5

Biggest vertical drop in the East at over 3,400 ft, Whiteface has good all-around terrain that gets as gnarly as you want with the hike-to Slides area. The upper mountain can suffer from wind exposure at times and lifts are occasionally stuck on wind hold. Seek out the narrower runs which collect and hold snow much better than open faces. Nearby Lake Placid is a great little town with cool Olympic stuff and nightlife.

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.
Superb!

It's a former Olympic mountain with great trails and beautiful scenery. It's also close enough to drive to for the family.
