4x4 Alpine Expedition

4x4 Alpine Expedition

With an abundance of hiking trails, many discover Whiteface Mountain on foot. For those seeking a different avenue of exploration, the 4x4 Alpine Expedition offers a personalized tour that navigates rugged mountain roads and remote forest and accesses a secluded area of the Ausable River—all with incredible views. Knowledgable guides provide information on Whiteface's natural and commercial history, as well as a firsthand view of the ski trails used in the Slalom, Giant Slalom, and Downhill events during the 1980 Olympic Winter Games. Each tour is tailored to create a memorable experience while respecting our guest's comfort level. Save 20% with your Olympic Sites Passport!
