Whiteface Mountain gets first snow of East

WILMINGTON — A light dusting of snow could be seen Thursday morning on Whiteface Mountain.

Publicists at the Olympic Regional Development Authority were billing it as the first snow of the season in the East and using that as a preview for the season.

If the weather continues to cooperate, ORDA said in a news release, skiing and snowboard riding at Whiteface will begin Friday, Nov. 28.

For 24 consecutive years, readers of SKI Magazine have tabbed Whiteface Lake Placid No. 1 in the East for off-hill activities, ORDA brags. The magazine’s readers also named Whiteface their fourth favorite spot in the East for après ski and nightlife. 

The 2015 survey also tabbed Whiteface as the 10th top ski resort in the eastern United States. It also received kudos for challenge (No. 4), scenery (No. 5), character (No. 6), dining (No. 9) and overall value (No.10). 

This spring, SnowEast Magazine readers chose Whiteface Lake Placid as their Overall Favorite Ski Resort in New York and their Favorite Ski Destination.
