Lake Placid, New York (PressExposure) February 07, 2011 -- About.com recently included Whiteface in its list of the top family ski destinations. One of only three eastern resorts to make the list, Whiteface was touted as "an ideal venue for a family ski vacation."
"This is another tremendous recognition not only for the mountain, but also for the two communities and the entire region," noted New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) president/CEO Ted Blazer. "Our vertical drop is an important message, but it's also equally important that the mountain and the region be recognized as a great family destination. This, combined with being ranked the number-one ski resort in the eastern United States by both SKI Magazine and SnowEast Magazine, continues to show that we,re a destination for everyone."
Whiteface's Kids Kampus boasts close parking, one stop shopping for lift tickets, lessons and rentals, and a safe and fun environment for young skiers. The Bunny Hutch chair lift connects Kids Kampus to the main resort and a shuttle service runs to and from the newly constructed, state-of-the-art Kids Kampus Lodge all day.
And you don't have to shuttle the whole family from airports hours away. Adirondack Flying Service offers private air charter flights into Lake Placid airport on your schedule. Charter planes can easily handle the additional "cargo" of skis and boots while the whole family can travels together.
Just minutes away from Whiteface, Lake Placid offers a wealth of "off mountain" activities, including scenic flights, ice-skating and tours of Olympic venues. And you can enjoy hours more fun by avoiding long lines at big commercial airports and hours of driving on mountain roads.
