Cloudsplitter Gondola Ride

Cloudsplitter Gondola Ride

It's like a bird's eye view—in flight! Our eight-passenger Cloudsplitter Gondola carries you from the Main Base Lodge to the top of Little Whiteface in fifteen minutes. As you trace the mountain's contours—soaring over streams, ski trails, steep rock faces and thick forests—the beauty of the Adirondacks reveals itself. You'll see Lake Placid and its namesake village. To the east lies Lake Champlain, and to the south stand the tallest peaks in New York State. You'll spot the ski jumps and the Ausable River. At the top, an observation deck and picnic area await you.

These are some of the country's best views, and this is the best way to see them! At the base of Whiteface Mountain, stop in before or after your gondola ride to J.LOHR Café and Wine Bar, featuring fine fare with a focus on local products. The Cloudsplitter Gondola and many other activities is FREE with your Olympic Sites Passport!
