Welcome to Whiteface, the Olympic Mountain. We have the greatest vertical drop east of the Rockies and trails for everyone in your family. This is where the world's best come to train and compete and where kids come to learn and have fun. At the top of Whiteface, spare a moment to take in the views of the surrounding Adirondack peaks of New York. Spot Lake Champlain and Vermont to the east. Breathe
deep. Point your skis downhill. Let them go. This is the face of eastern skiing.
