WILMINGTON, N.Y. — Grab your skis, grab your boards and get on out to Whiteface Mountain, in Wilmington, N.Y., for another great day of skiing and riding on the Olympic mountain. The calendar may read spring, but Mother Nature still says its winter and she’s expected to deliver another winter blow in the form of a late season Nor’easter.
Whiteface has already received 232 inches of natural snowfall this winter and this storm, which is expected to arrive on Friday, could dump an additional 14 more inches on the 72 open trails.
Don’t forget this Sunday it’s a Retro Super Sunday, presented by Bud Light, at Whiteface. Break out the neon one piece or go back further and break out the goose down or wool and stirrup pants and ski and ride all day for just $35 for adults, $30 for teens and $25 for juniors.
While you’re there, log on to Whiteface’s Facebook and Twitter pages as clues are revealed throughout the day for the on mountain scavenger hunt and win gear from local ski shops including Cunningham’s Ski Barn, Maui North and Viking Ski Shop.
So that everyone can enjoy the skiing and riding this weekend, Sunday’s pond skimming contest has been postponed until Saturday, April 9.
