Skiing and Snowboarding at Whiteface Mountain

Ski & Snowboard Whiteface Mountain

Whiteface was part of the post-World War II growth in recreational skiing attributed to the efforts of returning veterans of the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division. It is a major ski area, run by the Olympic Regional Development Authority. Known for its big-mountain skiing, Whiteface is consistently ranked as one of the top ski resorts in the Northeast. It was a prime venue of the 1980 Winter Olympics, hosting all six of the alpine ski events.[4] Whiteface regularly hosts major alpine ski events, such as the US Alpine Skiing Championships, most recently in 2010, and is a U.S. Olympic Training Site.

The Slides are considered to be one of the most challenging ski slopes that are marked on a trail map in the Northeast.

In summer, Whiteface Mountain offers gondola rides and mountain biking.
