Winter Gondola Rides

It's like a bird's eye view—in flight. Our eight-person Cloudsplitter Gondola carries you from the Main Base Lodge to the top of Little Whiteface in 15 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. 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.  This activity and many others are FREE with your Olympic Sites Passport!
