The Ultimate Après Eclipse

Whiteface Mountain is excited to host an epic après for the total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8.

$40 Lift Ticket Special

Experience a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event at the mountain with unparalleled views from the Cloudspin Bar & Grill presented by Saratoga Eagle deck at the Main Base Lodge! Join us for $40 lift tickets, live music, and giveaways as the moon gracefully passes between the Earth and the sun. Ski first and eclipse après with a special lift ticket price to ski and snowboard! Tickets should be purchased online in advance and lifts are open for skiing and riding that day from 8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on all lifts, lower mountain lifts will stay open until 3:00 p.m. Skiers and riders will be able to ski/ride down from Legacy Lodge after totality has passed. Afterward, head to the Cloudspin Deck brought to you by Saratoga Eagle for Live Music and food and drink specials. We are stoked to have one of the best jam bands in the northeast, Annie In The Water, as they finish their “Road to Totality Tour” here at Whiteface. Don’t miss their electrifying performance at Cloudspin between 1:30-4:30 p.m.

Legacy Lodge Deck Party

Get your eclipse on at the Legacy Lodge viewing party. The Lodge is free for Season Pass Holders or those with a lift ticket, available for skiers and non-skiers. A $40 lift ticket will be available to take the new Notch lift (non-skiers only) to the Legacy Lodge (catch the lift at the Bear Den). There will be food and drink specials. The Legacy Lodge will be cleared at 4:45 p.m.

Exclusive Cloudsplitter Gondola for Top-of-the Mountain Viewing - SOLD OUT

The most exclusive ticket in town! From 2-4:45 p.m., a limited $50 special viewing ticket for foot passengers only will be available for access to Little Whiteface. The ticket includes a roundtrip Cloudsplitter Gondola Ride, with access to the Little Whiteface Deck. Tickets will be for sale online and limited to 125 people. Please note that this ticket cannot be combined with ANY other discount or offer (is not included in the Olympic Sites Passport, Season Passes, or Season Pass Perks). Update 03/28: These tickets are sold out.

The partial eclipse kicks off at 2:12 p.m., with totality following at 3:24 p.m. and the maximum eclipse occurring at 3:26 p.m. As a safety precaution, all upper mountain lifts will close at 2:00 p.m., including the Cloudsplitter Gondola, for skiers and riders.

Eclipse glasses and safety

Complimentary safety eclipse glasses will be provided as supplies last.

Remember: Looking directly at the eclipse without proper eye protection is never safe. Eclipse glasses are NOT regular sunglasses; no matter how dark, they are not safe for viewing the Sun. Viewing any part of the bright Sun through a camera lens, binoculars, or a telescope without a special-purpose solar filter secured over the front of the optics will instantly cause severe eye injury.

Please note: Use caution walking on walkways and parking lots, especially in buildings. Melting and freezing, as well as water and snow accumulation, can cause surfaces to become slippery at any time of the day or night. Try to clean the snow off the bottom of plastic ski boots to help prevent a slip and fall. Use footwear with good tread and/or use commercially available products made for the bottom of shoes and boots to give better traction.

Please note that the Veterans Memorial Highway will NOT be open at this time.
