whiteface-logo.jpgWilmington, N.Y. - More than 190-inches of natural snowfall has fallen on Whiteface this winter and you know what that means.  More great skiing and riding for the entire family well into March at the Olympic mountain, not to mention the longer days, more sunshine and warmer weather. Celebration activities have been planned to welcome spring; kicking off with Mardi Gras this weekend, March 5-6.  Ski, ride, collect beads and get upstairs to the Cloudspin Lounge for food and drink specials and live music from the funk, R &B and soul group Jocamo.   There's plenty of fun for the kids too.  They'll have the chance to play in the snow with Curious George, Friday-Sunday.  The PBS character can be found at Kids Kampus each day and parents who enroll their children in a full day kids Kampus program with Curious George will receive a $20 discount off a one day lift ticket.  For more information about Curious George and the Whiteface Kids Kampus, long on to http://www.whiteface.com/events/george.php.
