Whiteface...a great mountain in the EAST....you have to be lucky a bit to arrive when there is some fresh snow on the slopes here though....
we did ski in the conditions here when there was more ice on the runs than snow !!!! your body won't like that and the p-tex base will be ready for a serious tune up !!!! BUT the next day we got 10-12" of fresh snow... much more fun... even though you ski in soft bumbs from top to bottom after just a few hours.... as the grooming here is not what you might be used to from other places...I did not see a snow cat in action here at all !! not a beginner's mountain .. that's for sure...if there is snow... go here and have fun

P.S> nice gondola ride and great views from the top... but do not expect Rocky Mountains, Banff

also the tickets are like $64 adult and be ready to pay $50 + for your kids too!!!!!!!!!THEY DO NOT HAVE A HALF DAY TICKET!!!!!the best deal is like $9 LESS, yes, only $9 less , if you decide to ski in the afternoon only ???!!! NOT A VERY GOOD DEAL !!!!!!
