Whiteface is the east coast equivalent of a perfectly cooked Wagyu steak, don't come here if you cannot appreciate the juicy steeps and tender snow. Of course it gets icy on Paron's run/Riva ridge, what can one expect from the only blue groomer in the summit area. Upper skyward is a TRIP when it's got a good groom on it. Glades are challenging and BUTTERY. The tallest lift-served mtn in the east, coupled with its latitude means on the right day you can catch some serious BLOWER pow. You can do 3200 vert in like 7 minutes (if you're into that) it's really that steep. Parks are second only to Killington and Carinthia, they still have those old school this-feature-could-kill-you vibes that an ex-Mountain Creek park rat like myself really appreciates (especially during vail's family-friendly terrain park genocide). Amenities are decent. If you need heated toilet seats and a gondola butler go to Stratton, Tremblant, or Killington. If you want to visit the absolutely gorgeous Lake Placid area and want a more family-friendly alternative, check out TITUS MOUNTAIN!!!! It's completely uncrowded, the snow is just as good, and it is completely free of the corporate greed currently plaguing our sport (plus it's got night skiing!). Whiteface is the crown jewel of the east. A sliver of state-sanctioned hope that one day, we won't all be eating $25 cheeseburgers in a packed, tastelessly swanky lodge that still manages to smell like skier feet.
