    Gwen notes the 1941 amendment to the Constitution authorizing Whiteface Mtn ski area. A 1987 amendment also passed the voters authorizing up to 25 miles of ski trail, and increasing their width, up to 200 feet in width, so long as there are no more than 5 miles of trail of 125 ft. or wider. ORDA is saying that the latest proposals are staying within those limits.

    With these MTB trails, does this include Lift Access to them? Effectively bringing back Down Hill Mountain Biking to the Whiteface region?

  3. Kyle Blemicco says

    It would be great to have real Down Hill Mountain Biking competitions at Whiteface. We lost the Snowboarding World Cup, why not get a UCI event and put Whiteface on the map for DH MTB?
