Whiteface Lodge Activities

In warm months, the great outdoors beckons with mountain trails for hiking and biking, golf on five nearby courses, rock climbing, whitewater rafting and fishing. Our Canoe Club is stocked with complimentary kayaks, pedal boats, canoes, and more, ready to launch from Paradox Bay. Guests can also cruise in a classic Hackercraft, pontoon boat, or Ski Nautique for a fee. Back on land, tennis, pickleball and basketball courts invite friendly competition.

Our ice skating rink is now closed for the season.

Lake Placid is a winter wonderland for outdoor enthusiasts. Downhill skiers and snowboarders can tackle the East Coast’s highest vertical drop at Whiteface Mountain. Explore our acres of snow-covered grounds by cross- country ski or snowshoe, or take a spin on our ice-skating rink, complete with complimentary ice skates. Later on, our rustic lean-tos’ offer a cozy spot to gather for a cognac and star-gazing by the warmth of a fire pit.
