While some of the best months of the 2011-2012 ski season are yet to come, it is never too early to start planning for next year. Beginning Monday, March 12th, die hard winter enthusiasts can purchase 2012-2013 season passes for Whiteface Mountain, in Wilmington, N.Y. Early specials include the popular Whiteface Only Non-Holiday pass for only $439 (ages 23-64), $299 for juniors (7-12) and just $30 for skiers or riders six and under.
