We will be open tomorrow and Sunday for a fun-in-the-sun weekend of spring skiing!  Tickets are just $29 for ages 13+ and $15 for ages 7-12- and frequent skier card discounts apply to those reduced rates!  We'll be enjoying rockin' tunes from the Willie Playmore Band on Saturday from 1-4pm, and our Pond Skimming Contest is Sunday at 11am.  It has been an active week of weather and Mother Nature is keeping a very wintery grip on our summit.  So we'll start with the Northwoods Gondola and Topridge Triple for Saturday morning, and add the Straight Brook Quad to the mix if and as weather allows later in the day or Sunday.  We have been grooming the summit terrain extensively throughout the week and just need a few extra degrees in the air to get the lift on the move- we are working on it! 

Special Notes

Pick up and use your 18/19 season pass this weekend- our new free and convenient financing plan breaks your purchase into four easy payments.  Stop by the Food Court, Saddle Lodge, or Open Pit Grille for some hearty keep-you-skiing fare- $9 sundeck lunch specials include a chicken teriyaki sandwich, or a trio of grilled beef & veggie kabobs.  Be sure to head to the Tannery (or the sundeck!) for apres-ski fun!  Quick Reminder: Spring conditions can mean some areas of thin cover and bare spots; as always have fun while skiing with care.  Thank you, readers of Adirondack Life, for voting us Best Ski Area!  Also a special shout-out to our dining partners Cafe Sarah & barVino for their accolades.

Cross-Country Skiing - Gore Mountain

Trail A

This gently rolling terrain allows for a variety of nordic skiing techniques. The trail begins as a low gradient climb through woodlands and then transitions to a low gradient descent with a nice banked turn to the open stadium area. The trail continues after the stadium to gain a ridge via a medium gradient climb and then transitions to a medium gradient descent back into the stadium.  (1.06K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail B

A significant climb will challenge the skier, but soon reward as well with two beautifully sculpted banked turns. Carrying speed from the bottom turn will allow a sublime transition back to Trail A's medium gradient climb.  (.45K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail C

This trail begins with the steepest climb of the trail system. This high gradient hill is short, steep, and sweet, and will definitely raise the heart rate. After the climb, the trail mellows out to a wide open flat stretch followed by a medium gradient climb to reach the highest elevation of the trail system. The wide turn and medium gradient descent allows the skier recovery time before dropping into the sculpted banked turns of Trail B.  (.56K, Snowmaking, Grooming , Lights)

Trail D

Meandering through soft and hardwoods with gently rolling terrain and a 'Norwegian sweet spot' climb of 8-9% grade, this trail has a wonderful flow.  Trail D will be opened with natural snow and during daytime operations.  (.59K, Grooming)

Trail E

This trail presents a variety of climbing and descent gradients, and a spectacular vista to view the Moxham Mountain & Valley and the High Peaks.  Trail E will be opened with natural snow and during daytime operations.  (.46K, Grooming)

Trail F

A fun and challenging terrain park-like trail with roller coaster dips, a gap jump, bicycle dips, a table top jump, and slalom turns.  This trail offers nordic skiers opportunity to work and develop balance, speed, and agility.  (.09K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

The test loop and bottom of Trail F allows skiers to dial in wax and check ski speed, as well as a choice to have some fun on nordic terrain park features.  (.23K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)
