Has anyone looked out their window lately?? Here in Lake Placid we have been seeing that joyous thing we call snow. The sky is looking beautiful from all the wonderful flakes falling upon the area. Just this morning I heard several small children saying “Look mommy and daddy” SNOW SNOW!!! YAY!!! Such a wonderful feeling to hear those happy cheers of joy. This could not be happening at a better time for the Ski Season at WHITEFACE MOUNTAIN and the great event coming just around the corner. RICH YOUR NEWSCASTER relaxing my weary bones in the Golden Arrow’s great jaccuzzi tub in the indoor pool area after a great day of skiing at the mountain. So, let me give you the skinny on what the conditions are like at the mountain and hit on a few deals that our very own gal of deals would love for me to mention.
Currently at Whiteface Mountain, they have 3 major trails open on the mountain and expecting more to be opened in the next day or so. Snow has been in the past 6 hours falling steadily on the slopes making snow making and fresh powder to hit the slopes. These few trails are defintely worth your time as they are some of the best the mountain has to offer. To enjoy these conditions I would like to hit on our EARLY SEASON MIDWEEK & WEEKEND SKI PACKAGE offered at the Golden Arrow. If you would like to ski Sunday through Thursday, you can partake in the Midweek Early Season package that is available at $79 per person, per night and based on double occupancy. However, if you are planning on visiting the next few weeks over the weekend, then the price for Friday and Saturday is a low price of $109 per person, per night. Both these packages included an evening in a Deluxe Guest room and lift ticket to Whiteface Mountain. This package is available until December 15th, 2011. Perfect time to get on the phone and speak to our wonderful reservations staff who are awaiting your call.
Another event that is around the corner on the weekend of December 9th is the HOLIDAY VILLAGE STROLL!! Time to get into some early Christmas festivities before the “Big Red man” comes down the chimney. (I know parents he gets all the credit..but look at the joy on the childrens faces) This event is a weekend full of fun and activites for all ages. Lake Placid is rolling out the red carpet sponsoring great family events on this particular weekend such as kids crafts, Holiday Movies, a Skating Party, a showing of the Nutcracker & of course amazing holiday shopping at the many boutiques! The pinnacle event will be held on Saturday with the arrival of Santa on Main Street by Firetruck & the Tree Lighting! Oh! I want to mention we still have our Holiday Stroll Package still available for $179 per person and is sure to put a smile on your face.
As I am looking at my fingers, I think it is time to say farewell, as my time in this hottub is up. They are quite wrinkled and my muscles feel very relax. Just remember if you do not have snow in your area, please come to Lake Placid before the holidays as we have some winter fun and festivities to DECK YOUR HALLS!!! Have a great day everyone.
