Cloudsplitter Gondola Rides


It’s like a bird’s eye view - in flight! This is exactly the thought your group is going to have as you sail along the sweet summer sky in this Whiteface Mountain Cloudsplitter Gondola. This 8-person gondola takes you from the main base lodge to the top of Little Whiteface in just 15 minutes, showcasing the beauty of the Adirondacks while getting you where you need to go quickly and efficiently. Trace the mountain contours, soar over streams, see the many exciting ski jumps and trails, steep rock faces, and thick forests as you make your relaxing way up the side of the mountain. On your way you will see Lake Placid and its namesake village, Lake Champlain to the east, and the tallest peaks in the state of New York to the south!

Once at the top, your group will have the opportunity to take advantage of the observation deck and picnic area. There are a few hiking trails that mainly serve as leading points to some of the greatest vantage points and photo opportunities in the entire Adirondacks region. During the summer you can stop at J. Lohr Vineyards and Wine Cafe and Bar, a fine dining experience featuring local and really delicious fare. The Cloudsplitter Gondola is a fun way to climb while taking in the best views of the mountain, a relaxing yet simultaneously breathtaking experience that allows you to immerse yourself into the surrounding nature of chirping birds and hidden wildflowers. Your group definitely isn’t going to regret opting in for this smooth ride in the sky!
