Condé Nast Traveler rates Whiteface 4th on Continent!!

The appeal of spending a winter getaway in the High Peaks / Whiteface region of the Adirondacks is becoming an even more open secret...

From ORDA: Only Whistler in Canada, Aspen in Colorado and Deer Valley in Utah ranked ahead of Whiteface among the best places to ski and stay on the continent.

A Who’s Who of ski resorts was listed behind the Adirondack winter icon, including Park City, Stowe, Vail, Telluride, Jackson Hole, Sun Valley, Mont Tremblant, Beaver Creek, Snowmass, Steamboat and Lake Louise.

“This news may be the most humbling praise we could ever receive,” said Ted Blazer, President and CEO of ORDA. “To be near the top of that list, in the same breath as some of the greatest resorts in the world, will keep us motivated to enhance our varied winter experiences even further. I couldn’t be prouder of our staff that makes this accolade possible, and hats off to the surrounding hotels, motels, shops, restaurants and attractions that really round out our remarkable resort.”

“It is wonderful that our region is being recognized for the very things which we all live here for – the Adirondacks –our destination amenities –our Olympic venues and our quality of life,” said James McKenna, President of the Lake Placid / Essex County Visitors Bureau. “This combination of attributes clearly sets us apart from other resort areas for visitors and residents alike.”
