Added to this years festival is the 50-Days to Whitefaces Opening. This party will take place at Lisa Gs, located at 6125 Sentinel Road, on Saturday, October 6. The party starts at 6 pm with a command performance by Todd Wolfe. At 8 pm is Meathead Films New York premiere of Wanderland. Meathead athletes are a breed apart. Able to perform at the highest level both on the mountain and ruling apr賠ski, these carefully selected individuals are the best of the best. Shredding every aspect of the sport, the Meatheads epitomize what every Easter skier should be: skilled, fearless, and just plain sexy, according to meatheadfilms.com. The movie will be shown outside weather permitting. There will also be lots of prizes, an air band competition, giveaways, and more. Whiteface is celebrating its 50th winter season this year.
