Whiteface may have made its name in winter, it has the highest vertical drop in the east, after all but it does summer pretty well too. The warmer months make Whiteface a natural setting for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels and ages, whether you're looking for an adrenaline rush or just an afternoon of beautiful views with your family. Take a hike along the Stag Brook Falls trail or Bear Den Mountain, play a round of Disc Golf and check out the area's most exhilarating, challenging Mountain Biking terrain. Or gather the family for an afternoon of taking it all in with a Scenic Cloudsplitter Gondola Ride to the summit of Little Whiteface. Drive the Whiteface Veteran's Memorial Highway to the summit, and lean into the Adirondack breeze as you marvel at the world below you.This well-known mountain offers exciting and scenic runs for skiers of all levels: Beginners do well on Easy Acres, which features its own ski school, novices and intermediates enjoy Little Whiteface, while experts head to the heart-pounding summit.

We are a family of 4. All beginner skiers. We cannot say enough good things about some of the staff here who were very patient and gave us expert advice: Nick by phone--answered all our questions and explained the many ski school/lift/rental options. Mike and Greg in the rental shop were so patient and got us perfectly fitted with boots-skis-poles.... More

Beautiful views and very nice look out. A little pricey to go to the top, but it was a nice road. The elevator to the top is best to take with children. The hike is a challenge.

My wife and I drove to Whiteface to take in the sights. Crossing the bridge over the running water in the middle of Winter was nice on our way to the lounge. Great price on the upper level bar/restaurant. Nice time with nice folks

When I visited, staff was not friendly to begin with. The only staff that was were the 2 guys fitting you for skis the women at the front desk need to find a new job with their face and short answers as we've never been there before. Anyways at the top of the first lift, there were 4 guys in... More

I had an amazing time on the mountain boarding. We were there on a Thursday and Friday, which allowed for us not be bothered by crowds. The mountain was well groomed and marked. It had plenty of terrain for all ability levels. The mountain was nice to give us a discounted ticket due to us working at another resort. I... More

THE LOCALS ARE ALL PROFESSIONALS. My self being an intermediate-advanced took it nice and slow. Crazy verticals nice glades by the end of... More

Whiteface Mountain has an abundance of snow and trails. You can ski from top to bottom over the longest vertical drop in the East. There are speedy gondola and quad chairlifts. The variety of terrain encompasses steep slopes, moguls, and cruisers. The parking shuttle is nice but I found it to not run as efficiently as at Gore.

Drove from NJ to lake George and we were here for couple of hours next day. The ride was very scenic,wheelchair accessible which is one of the main reason being its being renamed as whiteface veteran highway.

The service was good, the tickets were pretty cheap, and the mountain and runs were great. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 were the conditions. I got one slushy day, and one hard-packed day, so it wasn't bad, but there was also a lot of fog. They did a very good job grooming and the steeps were... More
