    I've been to LP and WF plenty on New Years and I can tell you that the Mountain is usually sketchy at best. Usually not any where near fully open and most very likely very icy. March on the other hand is when WF comes into it's own, usually. LP is a fun place to be on New Year's however.

    I agree with majority. March.

    Christmas is probably more fun in Lake Placid, but odds of good skiing seem much higher in March.

    Two of my favorite chairs, Plattekill double, Gore High Peaks Chair.

    Madonna rocks of course.

    That's the Whiteface ski report for approximately 2/3 of the season.

    Two great mountains that most east coast skiers have never skied at.

    I skied Gore for the first time last year and the High Peaks liftline and surrounding trees were super fun, and the Straight Brook side wasn't half bad either. That's a great mountain on a good spring day.

    Those are two that I do have checked off my list (and love both)...yet I'm missing some other major more popular ones.

    Yep. Count me as one. The only hill in NY that I've managed to ski is Whiteface. I've had free vouchers many times, but still didn't make it to Gore or Platty. Coming from NH they don't make much sense, but I'm determined to hit at least one this season. We shall see if it happens.

    From NH I can understand that at least. For me Platty is a day trip destination (~2.5 hours). It is my #1 choice for a day trip on a holiday weekend like President's where I stay away from VT.

    Gore is a terrific mountain with excellent terrain, but the town around it is pretty lacking (or at least was several years ago when I was last there).

    Lake George is a better option to stay when at Gore, only 30-35mins away. Like staying in North Conway when skiing Wildcat.
