Visitor Reviews of Whiteface Mountain (Lake Placid)

William from United Kingdom writes:

Whiteface is home to the greatest vertical drop east of the Rockies so undoubtley is one of the best if not the best ski resort in the Appalacians. When I went there last year there was plenty of snow (didn't stop snowing for 3 days!) and cold weather. The skiing mountain itself doesn't have any accommodation at the bottom (correct me if I'm wrong) but the nearby Olympic host Lake Placid town is a perfect base. The skiing is VERY good for the eastern seaboard as there is a massive variety and very good count of pistes for such an unknown resort. My favorite of which is the new Wilmington trail down the east of the mountain which is the newest trail coming up as it was only put up with a fast quad serving it and along with new trails such as 'look out below' (even for an experienced skiier was almost impossible with moguls the size of houses).

Alll in all, Whiteface cannot be overlooked as a brilliant resort!
