ALBANY, N.Y. — It may be summer and your thermometer may not be hinting at snow, but it’s never too early to begin thinking about winter or skiing and riding at Whiteface, in Wilmington, N.Y. The Whiteface Lake Placid Road Warriors are back out hitting the pavement and armed with opportunities to ski and ride Whiteface for free this winter along with an incredible chance to win a Whiteface Season Pass and enter your name into the Grand Prize drawing for a Whiteface Lake Placid Ski and Stay Package for two days and two nights for four people- including Olympic Sites Passports so you can enjoy our off-hill activities as well!

All you have to do is show up and impress us by wearing your winter gear – helmet, hats, goggles, skis, ski boots – you name it, and you could earn yourself a free Whiteface lift ticket! Wait. It gets better. Come find us and you will also be able to sign up for the Whiteface Season Pass drawing!

Not only does Whiteface boast the East’s greatest vertical, but in 2010 was SKI Magazine’s #1 Ski Resort in the Eastern United States. Readers also chose Whiteface/Lake Placid for the 18th consecutive year, as number-one in Off-Hill Activities, thanks to its array of Olympic-style sports including bobsledding, ice skating, cross country skiing, ski jumping, as well as, World Cup competitions, shows and concerts.

The Whiteface Lake Placid Road Warriors are planning trips throughout N.Y. and across the boarder into Canada to promote the incredible skiing and riding at Whiteface with opportunities to win and other cool swag, so be sure to keep an eye out for us the remainder of the summer and throughout the fall!
