A woman enjoying the best skiing

Skiing the East should not be overlooked when planning a winter getaway. From the Green Mountains of Vermont to the Adirondacks, there are a lot of great ski resorts in the east coast states for those who love skiing, snowboarding and participating in fun winter adventures. A lot of these ski resorts offer the best skiing in the Northeast!

There is nothing like a fun-filled day on the slopes! One of the best feelings is when you first get on the lift and see everyone below you making their way down the mountain with smiles. Once you’re off the ski lift, the most liberating experience is finally gliding through the fresh snow and enjoying all the beauty around you. There’s a reason why it is said that you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy a lift ticket, which is practically the same!

A woman enjoying the best skiing in the Northeast - Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid

Whiteface Mountain is located near the Olympic ski village of Lake Placid in the Adirondack Mountains. Known for the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games, Lake Placid is the ultimate winter destination where you can ski, snowboard, snowshoe, ice skate and Nordic ski.

During the winter months, Lake Placid is cold! Temperatures range from highs of 31° Fahrenheit to lows of 5° Fahrenheit. On average, it snows around 103” annually in the Whiteface Mountain/Lake Placid area. Always dress warmly when visiting Lake Placid and avoid exposing too much skin to prevent frostbite.

There are two regional airports near the Olympic resort – Lake Placid Airport and Adirondack Regional Airport. The closest international airport is Plattsburgh International Airport, which is around an hour from the heart of the village.

The best place to stay when planning a ski trip to Whiteface Mountain is Mirror Lake Inn. It is situated on the breathtaking Mirror Lake in Lake Placid that faces New York State’s highest mountain peak – Mount Marcy!

The Cottage is a great restaurant to enjoy in the same area, where you can sit in one of the heated ski gondolas and enjoy a mulled wine. This lakeside village also has excellent breweries to enjoy after a fun-filled day experiencing Lake Placid’s winter activities. The breweries to visit are Lake Placid Pub & Brewery and Big Slide Brewery.

As mentioned above, Whiteface Mountain is the main ski resort in Lake Placid. It offers some of the best skiing east of the Rockies, which is why the National Olympic Committee chose to have two winter games.

Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid is recognized for the longest single intermediate run, making it some of the best and most iconic skiing in the Northeast! This epic ski run is 2.1 miles long and it’s called the Wilmington Trail.

The Main Valley Area of Whiteface Mountain boasts a lot of green (easy) and blue (moderate) trails. The Lower Mountain is excellent for beginner skiers and snowboarders. Bear Den Mountain also has great green and blue trails.

Little Whiteface has many blue and black diamond (challenging) trails for advanced skiers. Double black diamonds are also on this mountain for expert skiers looking for a fun thrill!

Whiteface Mountain also has terrain parks and some of the best snow tubing on the east coast!

As Vermont’s highest peak and the fifth-largest ski mountain in New England, there is no question that Stowe is one of the best ski resorts in the Northeast. The resort’s two peaks have a combined 116 trails and 40 miles of skiable terrain. Additionally, there are plenty of other winter activities to enjoy.

Stowe Resort is in Northern Vermont, just 50 miles from the Canadian border. It boasts some of the best skiing in the Northeast within the Green Mountains! If you’re flying in, Burlington International Airport is the closest to the resort and it’s a short drive off exit 10 on I-89.

There are plenty of lodging options to choose from. Please note that those located at the resort can get pricey! Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa is a more affordable option in downtown Stowe. It was rated #2 Best Resort in the East by Condé Nast Traveler in 2022. Plus, you’ll still have easy access to the mountain via the free Mountain Road Shuttle that runs every 20-30 minutes.

For the powder seekers, there’s no shortage of snow in Stowe, Vermont. It gets an average annual snowfall of 314″. Temperatures in January peak at just 17° Fahrenheit, so bring lots of warm clothing!

Beyond skiing, there’s plenty to do at Stowe Resort. Spruce Peak Village has a European ski town vibe, with many cute shops, restaurants and an ice-skating rink. Don’t miss out on visiting WhistlePig Pavillion, a whiskey distillery that’s one of the best après-ski spots on the East Coast!

Outside the resort, you can tour the original Ben & Jerry’s factory, sample ice cream and explore the “graveyard” of retired flavors. If you’re a fan of the Sound of Music, the Trapp Family Lodge is also a must-see! This is where the Von Trapp family settled in the 1940s after fleeing Austria.

Dining options in Stowe range from high-end to quick and easy. Cork is an excellent option for wine lovers. It’s a restaurant/shop specializing in natural wine and small plates. For something more casual, grab an Italian-style pizza from Piecasso.
