Description

This is a great intro backcounty tour. Park at the winter closure of the Mt. Whiteface Auto Road, skin up the road to the summit building, optionally hike up to the true summit, turn around and ski back down the way you came up.

Great views up top and no route-finding make this a Daks classic.
