In recent years, I've had pretty bad luck at Whiteface and Little Whiteface Mountains.
About five years ago, I almost got stranded on the top of (big) Whiteface
while hiking in the summer. We would have been stuck if there wasn't a highway going down the mountain - the fifth largest in the state.
And about four years ago, I almost got stranded on top of Little Whiteface
, which is the mountain used for skiing, aso known in the ski community, apparently, as Iceface. But that ended up being a lot of fun since I got a free Snowcat ride
down the nearly 4,000 foot mountain.
Well, it's been a while since I went to Whiteface
so maybe my luck will change.
And this sounds fun...Shamrock Super Sunday is being offered this Sunday (March 16) with ski/ride all day for just $40. That is about half price
the normal ticket.
