What if you discovered a ski resort with the greatest vertical of any lift-serviced mountain in the Northeast, with mile after mile of impeccably groomed cruising trails, 98% snowmaking coverage, a 5-star ski and snowboard school and diverse, amenity-rich ski towns surrounding it?
SCWDC will be visiting Whiteface Mountain again this year, staying nearby in the Olympic town of Lake Placid NY. We’re flying into Burlington Vermont, then will take a picturesque two hour bus ride thru Vermont and upstate New York.
Whiteface offers more of everything: 3,430 feet of vertical, greatest in the East and more than most Western ski resorts! Whiteface has more inspiring expert terrain, longer, rolling groomers, including the longest single intermediate run in the Northeast, the 2.1-mile long Wilmington Trail. Whiteface offers 87 trails on 22 miles of skiing or riding. The trails are 20% beginner, 42% intermediate, and 38% expert. Mountain details are here. Whiteface offers more learning, more adventure, more fun, more off-mountain attractions you can't find anywhere else, such as bobsledding down an Olympic track or groomed Nordic skiing or strolling through the lakeside Olympic village.
Overlooking Mirror Lake in Lake Placid, and at the very heart of the shopping, dining, and entertainment district on Main Street, SCWDC will be staying at the High Peaks Resort. All rooms have a private balcony or patio with lake or mountain views. There are two indoor pools, two whirlpools, exercise room, nightly happy hour, and live entertainment in the Dancing Bear Lounge. Your lodging also includes daily breakfast and transportation to Whiteface Mountain.
