Ski Whiteface Mountain
East Coast skiing and riding
With more than 283 skiable acres, 86 trails, 11 lifts, and a 3,430-foot vertical drop — the largest east of the Rockies — Whiteface Mountain is big on a lot of things, including variety. Beginners of all ages will love having an entire area, Bear Den Mountain, dedicated to them. Learn to ski or ride, then head higher up the mountain and try one of our longer beginner trails, where better views of the Adirondacks await. Experienced skiers and boarders will also find plenty to love at Whiteface. Take a steep plunge, negotitate an expert-level glade, or head over to the slides for a true backcountry experience.
Whiteface is known for its beautiful panoramic mountain scenery, technical terrain, and award-winning family resort amenities, and it also boasts a complete terrain park with jumps, rails, jibs, and a U.S. Air Bag for tricks with a soft landing.
