Cloudsplitter Gondola Rides
The eight-passenger Cloudsplitter Gondola takes you from the base lodge to the top of Little Whiteface in less than fifteen minutes. This ride takes you over ski trails, wooded areas and scenic overlooks with breathtaking views of the AuSable River, the Adirondack High Peaks and the Olympic Jumping Complex. At the summit of Little Whiteface (3,676 feet), an observation deck and picnic tables await you regardless of the season.

Downhill Mountain Biking
Challenging downhill trails on the lower mountain that wind through the scenic valley and along the river that are suited to fit the needs of riders of every skill level. Advanced trails can be accessed via the Cloudsplitter gondola or a shuttle is made available to those riders looking to get a feel for the mountain first.

Whiteface Veterans Memorial Highway
An eight-mile trip from the crossroads in Wilmington, the Whiteface Veterans Memorial Highway will give you access to the summit of the fifth highest mountain in the Adirondacks. The last five miles are the most spectacular as the road winds upward through a changing forest and an alpine summit environment. At the parking area, take a short hike or ride an underground elevator to the summit for a truly amazing 360-degee view of the surrounding lush wilderness.
