WILMINGTON - It's an island madness celebration during Sunday's, Jan.2, Super Sunday at Whiteface Mountain, in Wilmington. This is the second of five Super Sundays scheduled for the Olympic mountain during the 2010-11 skiing and riding season.
While at Whiteface, skiers and riders can log on to Whiteface's Facebook and Twitter pages as clues are revealed throughout the day for the on mountain scavenger hunt and win gear from local ski shops including Cunningham's Ski Barn, Maui North and Viking Ski Shop. At the end of day, the party moves to the Cloudspin Lounge for Bud Light specials, prizes, and DJ.
Whiteface boasts the greatest vertical east of the Rockies, 283 skiable acres and 86 trails and was recently named the number-one ski resort in the eastern United States by readers of SKI Magazine. The mountain also received high marks for its Apres-Ski (#2), Dining (#2), Family Programs (#2), Scenery (#2), Terrain/Challenge (#2), Lodging (#4) and Overall Satisfaction (#5). And for the 18th consecutive year, Whiteface/Lake Placid was chosen number-one for its Off-Hill Activities, thanks to its array of Olympic-style sports including bobsledding, ice skating, cross country skiing, ski jumping, as well as events such as World Cup racing, shows and concerts.
Whiteface was also chosen by SnowEast Magazine readers as the East's favorite resort. Whiteface topped such resorts as Sugarloaf and Sunday River, both in Maine, and even Killington in Vermont. More than 3,500 readers took part in the poll and they also tabbed Whiteface as the most scenic resort and their favorite destination village.
