Whiteface Mountain offers some of the very best ski experiences Upstate New York (and the Northeast) has to offer. It is home to the greatest vertical of any lift-serviced mountain in the Northeast, miles and miles of magnificently groomed trails, a 5-star ski and snowboard school and more. And with diverse, amenity-rich ski towns surrounding it, Whiteface Mountain has activities and adventure for the whole family year-round.


In the winter, take on the longest single intermediate run in the Northeast, the 2.1-mile long Wilmington Trail. Enjoy exciting off-mountain attractions like bobsledding down an Olympic track, Nordic skiing or strolling through the lakeside Olympic village.

In the summertime, the adventurous can enjoy Whiteface Mountain’s Adventure Zone, 4x4 Alpine Expeditions and downhill mountain biking. For a more relaxing experience, step into the Cloudsplitter Gondola Rides to take in the panoramic mountain beauty or in the fall, take the scenic drive up the Veterans' Memorial Highway for breathtaking views of Adirondack fall foliage.

And delicious dining options are available at various Whiteface Mountain restaurants throughout the year!
