Review of Whiteface Mountain

Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

This attraction is 15 minutes long. You ride in an enclosed monorail car up the mountain. You can get out and look, then get back on to go back down the hill. The cost? You pay $20.00 per person. Really? A little too expensive for my family of three.

We took a gondola ride for the view. The staff were very friendly which was a great start to a wonderful time. The scenic view was great for photo opportunities,there was a lot of snow in April. We would like to take another ride in the summer.

Though it can be a little icy and crowded at times it's still a great mountain to ride on. It has slopes for all levels and it has plenty of space for riders. Plus, the view from the top and from the lifts is amazing! I loved it!

The facilities at Whiteface are more than adequate, but not over the top like some of the Vermont resorts. This mountain is about the skiing which I appreciated. Best place I've skied in the East and one of my favorites anywhere and I've been on several trips out west. It's an olympic Mountain for a reason.

Even though morning started out at 33 below zero, it was a clear, sunny beautiful blue sky day that amazingly warmed up to about 20 something degrees. No lines...incredible views ..good skiing...friendly staff. I have always wanted to ski here. I have been going to Lake Placid since I was a child and could not have asked for a better Whiteface experience
