feb25-29 we got so lucky coming here. we decided to brave taking a 4 and half our drive with our one year old son. this was the first time we took him on any vacation. whiteface got 12 inches of new snow over night. we had amazing conditions. we checked into the whiteface lodge a 4 star spa monday afternoon. snowboarded the next three days dropping him off at whiteface's kid's campus a lincoln logs building. the first day was gloomy but powder. second day was brilliant and gorgeously sunny and powder. thursday was extremely cold and the morning was packed powder/icy until noon then it loosened up and got brilliant sunny and powder but we were so uncomfortably frozen we quit.we ate at charlie's for breakfast. I had pan seared trout and scrambled egg whites. my boyfriend had french toast. we ate lunch at the cottage owned by mirror lake inn. i had a portabello sandwich-their food is amazing and service is friendly with a view of the beautiful frozen lake placid. friday morning we had breakfast at the View and it was amazing too. they made omelettes to order they had fresh muffins including gingerbread, they had corned beef hash freshest squeeze oj and many fireplaces. we never made it to the zig zag pub for live music but i heard it's busy.the quad that takes you to the highest summit we never did because the last day it was too cold so we stayed on the gondolas summit. everyone we met was truly friendly. the mountain is state owned like gore and many others the base lodge lacks in food and visual stimulation but we had luck with timing for the snowstorm. i'd go back to the whiteface lodge. we neevr used the spa just the hot tub. they have an outdoor iceskating rink that was busy until 9pm with twenty people also a bonfire pit with smores. a gorgeous timeshare resort.i didn't want to leave
