Rain and sleet overnight on Friday will likely fall as snow at higher elevations and snow will continue through the day on Saturday and into the evening. Sunday will be chilly but clear and sunny. If you're itching to slide on snow, the best bet will be Saturday afternoon or early Sunday morning.
This would be a fitting weekend to ski the highway - Sunday is Veterans Day and the road is dedicated to the memory of all American veterans. A little history since we don't have any other skiing to report on this week (excerpted from here):
A road up the mountain was first suggested over 100 years ago by a Lake Placid entrepreneur, but it was not until the 1920s that a highway up Whiteface was promoted with real vigor — after a road was paved up Pike’s Peak in Colorado.
The construction project was dedicated in 1929 by New York Governor Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Six years later, Roosevelt returned as the American president to cut the ribbon opening the highway. It was the suggestion of a wheelchair-bound FDR that led to the blasting of an elevator tunnel to carry visitors from the parking lot to the summit of Whiteface Mountain.
