Scenic Cloudsplitter Gondola Ride

at Whiteface Mountain

Summer Gondola Rides
It's like a bird's eye view—in flight. Our eight-person Cloudsplitter Gondola carries you and your family, or anyone you think might enjoy a picnic lunch among breathtaking views, from the Main Base Lodge to the top of Little Whiteface. As you trace the mountain's contours, soaring over streams, 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. 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. J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines Café and Wine Bar features fine fare, with a focus on local products in a casual setting at the base of Whiteface Mountain. This activity and many others are FREE with your Olympic Sites Passport!
