Whiteface FB page has pic of tower guns blasting under a chairlift from this morning, 11/14. Can't quite tell which lift.
The overnight temps I'm seeing for LP this week make me think that there will be snowmaking on the mountain all week. Doesn't really make that much difference to me. I'm driving up to LP to spend Thanksgiving with my daughter and other friends and family any way. Getting in a day of skiing is a bonus.
"Excelsior, Summit express, Upper valley, Lower valley, Fox. No real set early opening plans. The weather looks pretty warm this week but we will make snow when we can. I hope it stays cold in the higher elevations!"

WILMINGTON, N.Y. --- The snowguns have been turned on and snowmaking is underway on Whiteface Mountain, in Wilmington, N.Y. Crews began making snow, last Saturday, Nov. 13, top to bottom, on Little Whiteface, covering the Excelsior, Summit Express, Upper and Lower Valley and the Lower Fox trails.
Snowmaking will continue tonight, into Tuesday morning and Tuesday evening, in anticipation of opening day, Friday, November 27, 2015.
Took the long way home from Potsdam and noticed many of the High Peaks had less snow then when we drove up on Saturday and Whiteface had an apron of white and figured that snow making was going on! Won't be long now!
Hey, First time post but this blog always gets me so stoked. So keep it up everyone!. I went up whiteface last night and unfortunately not as much snow as I was hoping. Still patchy, thin and bumpy. I think whiteface will not be open this weekend, BUT I sure hope it does. cheers
I'm probably going on Saturday 12/5 after a visit to Clarkson University the day before. My entire family will be there including Snomom. Snodad and I are forcing her to come so she is warmed up for Steamboat come 12/26.
What could we expect to be open? Would they be running the LWF chair by then or just the gondola and facelift? I know the Summit won't be ready, but hopefully there are some decent options off Little Whiteface.
