THE WHITEFACE REGION AND YOU!
Spring in the mountains
Skiers and snowboarders are making their last turns on Whiteface, and now there's a new sense of excitement in the mountain air. As the snow melts it fuels our waterfalls, making spring the best time to get out and see them. Take a tour of High Falls Gorge and see what we mean, or make the short hike to Copperas Pond and enjoy the emergence of wildlfowers and leaves.
Spring is also a great time to start planning a summer vacation to the Whiteface Region. It's no secret that we're a destination for adventure-seeking mountain bikers, and as soon the woods are dry people will be out riding our extensive, ever-expanding network of trails.
The towns of Wilmington and Jay, located in the heart of the Adirondacks, are home to Whiteface Mountain, a year-round attraction for adventurers and sightseers alike. After a day exploring the Adirondacks, relax at one of the region's lounges and recount the day's activities.
