SKI RESORT INFORMATION
Wilmington, New York 12997
Whiteface is one of the 46 peaks in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State with a summit above 4,000 feet. It has glade skiing, a wonderful beginner’s area known as Kids Campus, and in 1997 opened up what was previously out of bound skiing in The Slides. The Slides offer over 1,000 vertical feet of treeless skiing and when open boosts Whiteface’s vertical to 3,430 feet. With four to choose from, ‘The Slides’ is a true backcountry experience for expert skiers only. They are open only when conditions permit. Encountering frozen waterfalls, cliffs, and other obstacles is to be expected.<br /><br />Overall, Whiteface is a racing/cruising mountain. The Ski School offers ‘Parallel from the Start’ training aided by the use of blades and shaped skis. The program guarantees skiing from the summit of Whiteface Mountain in five days. Whiteface has a Half Pipe and Terrain Park and it’s a ball to watch those who dare to go there. The mountain and the beautiful village of Lake Placid have much to offer and it is possible for skiers at all levels to have a wonderful time at this Eastern Olympic mountain.
