We are open Saturday-Sunday for pre-winter fun including scenic gondola rides, downhill mountain biking, adventure activities, workshops, and events!  Buy an e-ticket for our activities in advance for terrific savings.  Keep in mind your 17/18 season pass includes unlimited gondola access and hiking every weekend.  Carl Heilman joins us this Saturday for his annual on-mountain photography workshop- reserve your spot today!

Join us Saturday, September 30 for the Leaf Cruncher 5K trail walk/run.  Registration includes a scenic gondola skyride amid colorful foliage and entry for outstanding raffle prizes including outdoor gear, fall-themed items, lift tickets, and locally handmade treats from Barkeater Chocolates!

We are excited for extensive renovations to three of our lodges!  The size of the Saddle Lodge is doubling, the original 1967 gondola unloading station at Gore's summit is being transformed into the new Straight Brook Lodge, and we're expanding the rental shop, children's program center, and bathrooms of the Northwoods Lodge.  Be sure to stay in touch to keep up with all of our projects and improvements as they progress!

During the warmer months, we happily host weddings, reunions, corporate parties, and other types of gatherings which can feature mountaintop happenings and our year-round catering services.

Bear Cub Den Daycare

Sleeping Bear Cub

UPDATED FOR WINTER 17/18

Children enjoy a long tradition of fun and friendship.  We offer a safe, playful environment for your little ones (ages 6 months to 6 years) while you enjoy the mountain.  Pick up your child and take them to lunch, or bring a lunch and we'll feed them while in our care (we do not provide lunch).  Bear Cub Den is open daily, 8:15am-4:15pm.

Play 'n Snow

We love to take the kids outside to play in the snow!  Children are supervised for 30+ minutes as they walk, slide, make snow angels, and more.  We'll take them on a short sleigh ride from the the daycare to other kid-friendly locations in the base area for their play time, and then another fun sleigh ride back.  Children enjoy this time playing in the snow while becoming acclimated to the outdoor environment.  

Offered on weekends and during holiday periods, Play 'n Snow is an option for each child and is included in the daycare price.  Please be sure to bring your child's outdoor boots, jacket, snow pants, hat, and mittens if they are participating in this program.  Gore Mountain reserves the right to suspend the outside program on days when the weather is inclement, or for other safety reasons.

1 hour: $25
2 hours: $45
4 hours: $75
Full-Day: $99
Book of Four Days of 8-Hour Care: $350 (passholder discount not available)
2017-2018 Season Pass: $775*

Season passholders save 10% off hourly & full-day services, or 17/18 daycare season pass as a part of your Passholder Extras!

Reservations are recommended, please call (518) 251-2411, x1018.  A parent or guardian must remain on the mountain while your child is in our care.  All daycare services are non-transferable, intended for one child only.  View our reservation policy.

*Season pass is valid daily during peak season.  Daycare may not be available during the early/late season so please check ahead for our schedule.
