Foursquare Tips

  • "Top beat the crowds tip: take lift 7 early before it bottlenecks" - Andrew Weibrecht, Olympic bronze medalist, US Ski Team
  • "The greens at Whiteface are the only trails that ski like blues." - Andrew Weibrecht, Olympic bronze medalist, US Ski Team
  • This mountain is aggressive. Every run is steep. Ski down from the summit for great views and complete vertigo.
  • a great way to see the 5th highest peak without sweating! Yet rough on your car!
  • Took the gandola ride, so scary but so beautiful!!
  • Awesome views
  • After a ski race, wait until they drop the rope and ski Draper's Drop.
  • Have a "make your own burrito" at the burrito bar upstairs in the Lodge. They are sooo yummy!
  • We went in the summer, and drove the memorial highway to the top, which was gorgeous! It's expensive for an entire family as they charge per person rather than per vehicle, but the views are great!
  • Great skiing despite this awful ('15-16) winter we're having. Lots of nice long moderate trails.
  • Ski the Face! The Gondola rocks. I've taught yoga at the top of Little Whiteface (the gondola). My hometown mountain - I spent many MANY quality days, weeks here.
  • Amazing views riding the gondola to the top of the mountain.
  • Everything
  • Very nice mountain for non-serious skiing.
  • Cold and a bit icy
  • Management should be proactive and send out emails to ticket holders when lifts are shut down. Amazing though over all
  • Super friendly staff!
  • Even in the summer, they have amenities for the family. Ride up the mountain was a little scary, but the view is great! Remember to wear bug spray for the biting black flies!!!!
  • Gondola is not worth $20 You can get much nicer views of high peaks from Whiteface or Ski Jumps tower. Although AirBag was a cool experience!
  • Paid parking on holidays and weekends will close by 10:30 so get there early if you want the best parking.
