Activities

Voted #1 for Off-Hill Activities...

...27 years in a row! No other Eastern ski resort offers the range of off-mountain activities and amenities as Whiteface and teh surrounding communities of Lake Placid and Wilmington. Topping the list of must-do activities is the Lake Placid Bobsled Experience—a thrill of a liftime you'll be itching to re-do as soon as you catch your breath. For a more leisurely tour through the natural environment, visit our cross country ski center in winter, and drink in the beauty of the Adirondacks on our 50 km of Nordic trails. In the summer, take a drive up the Veterans Memorial Highway to the summit of Whiteface Mountain—New York's fifth highest peak—and enjoy 360-degree panoramic views reaching as far as Vermont and Canada.

Our Olympic sites are always buzzing with activity! Explore all of our offerings below and be sure to check out our Activity Calendar to find out what's happening this week.
