Few places on earth can claim to be THIS CLOSE to this much. World class fly fishing waters, breathtaking mountain trails, Santa’s reindeer, Whiteface Mountain ski and bike runs, and shopping in an artists’ community. The Towns of Wilmington and Jay are easily accessible, convenient and surprisingly affordable to visitors.
WhitefaceRegion.com is the promotional url that we use to attract visitors. ROOST staff, with the assistance of the Whiteface Mountain Tourism and Business Center staff and Wilmington Recreational Committee continue to update content on the site to attract visitors to the region.
Communications maintains social media channels for the region (Google+, Youtube, and Pinterest board) to spread our social reach. Additionally, the communications team hosts travel writers in the area to increase awareness of all that the Whiteface Region has to offer.
This represents a 38.88% increase over 2012 site traffic. This trend continues with pageviews: 2013 numbers 37.28% higher than 2013 at 154,545.
Continuous content development helps generate this growth.
Wilmington was included in the first round of DMP project processes that began in 2007.
Wilmington’s Master Plan seeks to bolster the tourism economy by achieving several goals such as building cooperative partnerships, and keeping their strong position in fly fishing, outdoor recreation and bicycling markets while maintaining the small town character of the destination.
