Whiteface mountain is the perfect place for family and couples. Since its run by the state of NY you cant stay on the mountain. But they had the olympics in 1980 so you have all the olympic venues like the bobsled the ice skating rinks toboganing cross country skiing. Also it is the perfect place to go in the summer with hiking swimming shopping boating. I love it there and the skiing is so awsome. They have the best condition in NY and the longest verticle drop in the NE. The terrain park is awsome because they have the Snow boarding world cup there each year plus many other olympic venus.
