Whiteface Mountain Gondola "Cloudsplitter" Rides

It's like a bird's eye view—in flight. The eight-person Cloudsplitter Gondola carries you and your family from the Main Base Lodge to the top of Little Whiteface. You'll see Lake Placid and its namesake village. To the east lies Lake Champlain. To the south stand the tallest peaks in New York State. You'll spot the ski jumps and the Ausable River. At the top, an observation deck and picnic area await you. These are some of the country's best views, and this is the best way to see them.

Ausable Chasm

Step back in time as you walk nature trails in the midst of a primeval Adirondack Forest. Stroll past Rainbow Falls, Elephant's Head, Column Rock, Hyde's Cave and the eerie quiet of Mystic Gorge. Descend hundreds of feet to walk on natural stone walkways and gaze upon eons of geologic history etched in stone. Add a scenic raft ride and float the legendary waters of the Ausable River through a maze of breathtaking rock formations sculpted over thousands of years by the river's currents. Open since 1870, this is one of America's oldest attractions.
