Overview
More
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.

Breathtaking, amazing and once in a lifetime. Don't miss visiting this spot. There are many ways to see this mountain. My favorite was taking the Veteran's highway to the top. Stop along the way and enjoy the breathtaking view.

The trip up the veteran's memorial highway was really cool and we made it part way up the trail to the summit (wrong shoes and the elevator is still out of service for the season). Overall, we had a good time, marveled at the snow...More

Amazing view every step of the way up. Best picture to take is at the bottom so you might want to take a photo before you go up and your hair gets all wind blown.

Elevator was not in service so we tried the hike up to the summit but a fear of heights prevented me from making it all the way to the top. It was beautiful though.

Once you park your car, the walk can be challenging for some to the summit, however there was a lot of kids on the route. Once at the top, the view is worth it. Just past the edge, there are some isolated spots to take...More

We like spring skiing but it can get fairly messy at whiteface. Busy on the weekends like all other mountains, but the lines were reasonable. Lots of space to sit if you aren’t skiing and you can pay to go up the gondola for a...More

they have beautiful views, highly recommended. we took a gondola ride, kinda scary but lots of fun. they had a lot of skiers so i’m assuming it’s popular, not to pricey to ride the gondola but to ski i guess it’s a little pricey

A lady was (very annoyingly) talking to her work on her cell the whole time we were at the top. So I assume it was good.
