My boyfriend and I did the Cloudspitter Gondola ride and it was amazing. It was $48 total for a round trip for 2, but worth it! It takes about 15 minutes up and back down, but they let you out at the top to walk around and enjoy the scenery. At the top on a clear day I swear you can see forever! It’s a beautiful way to see the mountains and enjoy the fall foliage.

I've been here a couple of times before, but never in the Fall. The ride up the mountain was gorgeous with all of the trees in their full fall wardrobe! We were disappointed that we couldn't go to the summit because of the pandemic, but we did enjoy the ride up to the castle.

Whiteface Mountain has beautiful views of Lake Placid and the surrounding area. We rode the Cloudspitter Gondola up one fall day which was a very pleasant ride (your party is alone in the gondola so it feels COVID-safe), and at the top you have expansive views. You can also hike around at your leisure, and ride back down when you're ready. Later in the weekend we did the drive up Veterans Memorial Drive. It was a lovely drive, but the views are the same as the gondola, and for the cost it didn't seem worth it. Currently the summit and castle are closed so there wasn't a huge pay off at the top. It was also cold/lots of cars/lots of steep drop offs, so if you have little kids, there isn't really a place to walk around like there was after the gondola.

My family has been enjoying the auto road up White Face for more than sixty years... This time we got to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage. To bad the walk to the top is closed, damn COVID 19 anyway. Still well worth the time
