Whiteface Off to Another Great Start

Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington New York is off to a great start again this year.

The cold weather in November without a warm up has enabled the snow making crews to laid down the white stuff. As of the second week of December over 34 of the 87 trails were open. According to General Manager Aaron Kellett, the near term goal is to have the summit open by Christmas and sustain it. He believes that is possible. The skiers that make their way to Whiteface over the Christmas Holiday are different than the season long clientele and we have to accommodate them according to Kellet.

The snowmaking at Whiteface is headed up by Mike Snow who has been making snow since the 70s. Mike and his crew will use the five pump houses around the mountain to turn the Ausable River into the white stuff. The snowmakers will strategically by making snow in the areas where they anticipate the most traffic. Aided by several new Technoalpin T-40 Snow guns placed around the mountain more and better quality now is available. We’ve made significant investments in new technologies. It is necessary to provide the best customer experience Kellet said.

Whiteface also invested in a third PistonBully winch cat to its grooming fleet this year. Having the highest vertical in the east makes winching a necessity.

The food service experience is a little changed up this year. The traffic at the mid station lodge has been re-routed to make for a smoother flow and easier in and out.

The base lodge continues to offer a number of cafeteria options but for those who are looking for more re-fined dining at the J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines Cafe & Wine Bar in the base lodge. This year the menu includes a number of local offerings from cheese, breads and even coffee that locally roasted and ground.
