Rediscover One of the Greatest Ski Mountains in the East
Home to one of the best ski experiences the East has to offer. Simply put, Whiteface Mountain offers more of everything: snowmaking, expert terrain, long, rolling groomers, including the longest single intermediate run in the Northeast, the 2.1-mile long Wilmington Trail. With learning opportunities, more adventure, fun, and off-mountain attractions you can’t find anywhere else, like bobsledding down an Olympic track or groomed Nordic skiing or strolling through the lakeside Olympic village. Whiteface also offers more hotel and dining options than you’ll find in any hamlet in southern Vermont.
In the summertime, you’ll find great activities and adventures for the whole family at Whiteface Mountain, from the Adventure Zone and Downhill Mountain Biking to scenic Cloudsplitter Gondola Rides and 4×4 Alpine Expeditions. In the fall, take a drive up the Veterans’ Memorial Highway to the summit of Whiteface for breathtaking views of Adirondack fall foliage!
“Wonderful ski resort, with huge mountain. One can spend 10 minutes going up and 15 going down! Plenty of trails to keep a skier/snowboarder occupied for multiple days! Rental staff are eager to help and process visitors with speed and efficiency.”
