Whiteface Mountain is the fifth-highest mountain in the U.S. state of New York, and one of the High Peaks of the Adirondack Mountains. Set apart from most of the other High Peaks, the summit offers a 360-degree view of the Adirondacks and clear-day glimpses of Vermont and even Canada, where the skyscrapers of Montreal, away, can be seen on a very clear day. A great skiing destination, the Whiteface Mountain, home to 1980 Winter Olympic Games, is often called the Ice Face, because of icy conditions that occur along with extreme temperatures.  On a coldest day of my stay, December 27 of 2017, the temperatures at the summit dropped to -30C, some of those photos were taken that day.
