It's a Why Not Wednesday, so be sure to bring an unopened Coca-Cola product to exchange for a $48 lift ticket!  The forecast calls for you starting your day on a nice helping of new natural snow, and groomers are quickly turning last weekend's challenging weather into beautiful fresh corduroy!  Snowmakers are busiest on Foxlair, Fairview (opening soon!), Sunway, and 3b.  Saturday starts our favorite family promotion- Take Your Kids to Gore Week, where children 19 and under ski or ride free with a full-paying parent!

9 New Surprises at Gore Mountain!

Spoiler Alert: Gore has new lodges, improved glades, solar power, better snowmaking, and fresh freestyle features!

Elevate your expectations this winter, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Surprise number 1: The Saddle Lodge.
There is a brand-new mid-mountain experience at the Saddle Lodge. The size of the space has more than doubled, and skiers are so excited about this fully renovated space!  Between runs, treat yourself to a hearty meal- you can dine in front of a spectacular showcase of the Adirondack High Peaks. Updates to the Saddle Lodge include an attractively styled vernacular, Adirondack-style furnishings, an expanded and updated kitchen to serve a larger, more creative menu, new bathrooms, and an approachable façade and lobby area upon entry.

Surprise number 2: Glade Cleanup
Over the summer and fall, Gore saw its largest glade cleanup ever- our crew spent hours in the woods clearing out all 28 glades.   With a little help from Mother Nature when you're visiting, you'll be spending mos tof your day in Gore's endless trees- now with smoother surfaces and wider lines.

Surprise Number 3: New Freestyle Terrain Park, the Trench
Veer into the woods off Upper Sleighride and you'll find yourself embarked on a winding, rolling, friendly freestyle tour packed with natural features. Log and ground formed banked turns, a tree tunnel, rock drops, and dipping ground terrain make up this furiously fun tour- keep it moving! 

Surprise number 4: The Straight Brook Lodge
Up at 3,600 feet the stagnant 1967 gondola unloading station is breathing life again. No longer is the building waiting to relive the glory days, but now is a the best new hangout while you're out having an epic snow day.. The Straight Brook Lodge is a friendly place to warm up and offers restrooms, vending machines, and warm drink dispensers. Soak up the sun on the new deck located directly under the historic gondola lift; the machinery is intertwined within the structure. The designers did this in homage to history – many of you no doubt cherish memories of riding the gondola in your youth. The Straight Brook Lodge has much of the original structure intact, and the ceiling and floor have been restored. 

Surprise number 5: More Snowmaking Efficiencies
Gore has been steadily modernizing its snowmaking infrastructure over the last several years, and this year136 new guns equipped with the latest energy-saving technology are hard at work. More guns, improved efficiency of the pump house, and updated snow distribution methods all contribute to snow being made more quickly this winter.

Surprise number 6: Nordic Trail Improvements
Our upper wooded trails D and E (check out the map!) have been widened to facilitate even better grooming. The expert C trail has been rerouted through the woods to create a better flow within our trail system, and terrain improvements have also made for an even nicer beginner experience.  Looking to learn nordic?  Check out our beginner cross-country ski package

Surprise number 7: Solar Energy
Gore Mountain has the largest solar array dedicated to a ski area in the United States.  Its massive 5.325 MW system is poised to be offset 85% of Gore's energy needs.  Gore Mountain is efficiently harvesting sunlight, utilizing 14,589 ground-mounted solar panels across 20 acres of otherwise fallow farmland. The electricity generated credits Gore's meter at a rate higher than power that is traditionally produced, while providing a cleaner, more sustainable source of energy to its electric distribution zone. The agreement is projected to save Gore Mountain approximately $10 million over the life of the contract, while offsetting 113,919 tons of carbon dioxide, 71,634 pounds of nitrogen oxide emissions, and 131,835 pounds of sulfur. Gore's purchase agreement received support from Governor Cuomo's NY-Sun incentive through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

Surprise number 8: The Northwoods Lodge
An ample addition to the Northwoods Lodge now means extra space for the rental and repair shop, better bathrooms, more room for the popular children's Mountain Adventure programs, and a better arrival and registration process. Gore has also upgraded its rental and demo equipment fleets. 

Surprise number 9: New Parking Lot G
Arrival just got easier with the completion of new 190-car "G" parking lot.  Located at the top of the access road, this extra parking will help Gore's shuttles get you to and from the Base Area faster (while saving fuel), so you can experience all of Gore's fantastic new amenities!
