Eat. Sleep. Explore. Repeat.
Winter in the Whiteface Region is unlike no other. And it's all right outside your door, in the midst of some of New York's wildest lands! From the quiet, serene woods of wilderness areas to towering peaks covered in acres of snow, the bright landscape beckons outdoor adventurers. There is no shortage of fun things to do outside, and the shops and restaurants with gifts and food to keep you fueled are the icing on the cake (and on the skating rink!). Did we mention the Whiteface Region is home to Santa Claus, hot eats to warm the soul, fat tire biking, and so much more? Whether you're making an outdoor "to do" list or getting a jump start on shopping for that special someone on your nice list, you'll find something here that will make you grin from ear to ear.
If you want to get close to nature and enjoy amazing winter scenery, you won't want to miss a visit to the Whiteface Region! You'll probably want to spend a few days exploring, which won't be a problem because there are lots of places to stay and relax. Play all day and indulge in awesome flavors at our wonderful restaurants. Don't worry, there are a lot of adventures throughout the region, from cross-country skiing and snowshoeing to skating and birding! The opportunities are endless!
You've probably heard of Whiteface Mountain. This amazing peak has the biggest vertical drop of any ski center in the East and features terrain that will make you say wow! But that's not the only gold-medal attraction here. Explore the rich natural history of the Ausable River at High Falls Gorge — extra pretty surrounded by snow and ice — or visit local art studios in pastoral small communities. Until Christmas, Santa Claus would love to welcome you to the North Pole, so don't forget to be nice instead of naughty!
