Ski Area Opens Ahead Of Schedule

WILMINGTON, N.Y. (November 19, 2012)--The state-owned Whiteface Mountain ski center near Lake Placid, N. Y., has opened for the season, six days ahead of schedule.

Hundreds of skiers hit the slopes over the weekend under a sunny sky with mild temperatures.

Officials said recent weather has been ideal for snowmaking, allowing the mountain to open early.

It was the earliest opening for Whiteface since 2003.

The ski center will be closed today through Thursday, but reopens on Friday for the holiday weekend.
