I was under the impression that Whiteface Lodge was named after and had close ties with the Whiteface Ski Resort. That is not true. It is located at the opposite, almost outskirts of Lake Placid from the ski resort. There is no direct shuttle connection to Whiteface Ski Resort. The hotel DOES offer a shuttle to get into town, but not to the ski hill. Once in town, you have to take the municipal bus from ANOTHER hotel to get to the ski hill. Like many skiing families, not all of the members of the family like to ski at the same times for the same periods of time. At the end of the ski day, my son and I took the municipal bus, a 35 minute milk run, through e many hotels in town, only to be dropped off at another hotel, from which I phoned my wife to come and pick us up. I would expect a high end hotel, to either organize the municipal bus to come to the lodge or offer a shuttle, even a small van, that could bring you to and from the hill. For someone to come from the hotel (lodge) to the ski hill and back would take more than an hour of their time.
