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.

Environment

Learn more about Gore's environmental efforts, and those throughout our industry.

Gore Mountain is a leader of environmental conservation efforts in the ski industry and within our local community.  We are committed to preserving the winter that we love for our future generations and strive to operate harmoniously with the environment. We work closely with the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and other environmental organizations to analyze our operations and seek alternative ways to save resources, reduce waste and educate our customers. 

Breaking News 03/03/2017:  In support of Governor Cuomo's Clean Energy Standard, which requires that 50% of the State’s electricity come from renewable energy sources by 2030, Gore Mountain is proud to become one of the first Eastern-based ski resorts to partner with The Climate Reality Project I AM PRO SNOW 100% Committed campaign.

We're Turning Sunlight Into Snow.  During the last year, Gore's signature project was the signing of a two-project, 25-year solar energy contract. 14,589 ground-mounted solar panels have been constructed on 20 acres; those panels are poised to offset 85% of our mountain's energy use. 

Gore also continued its long-term investment in high-efficiency snowmaking, introduced service of locally produced foods, offset energy use through strategic trail modifications, added "recycled” trails to the map, and made several other environmentally-friendly enhancements that guests can see, enjoy, and learn about each day! 

Breaking News 5/25/16:  Gore Mountain Wins National Award For Environmental Excellence!

Since 2000, Gore has won three "Silver Eagle" awards, which are competitive environmental excellence awards in regard to a specific discipline.  They were presented to Gore Mountain by the National Ski Areas Association:

For Excellence in Environmental Group Relations: Gore Mountain's exciting expansions need to be carefully planned so that the growth is supported with the appropriate research, permits, and funding, and that there has been review from special interest groups.  One example is the Hudson River Pipeline.  Gore Mountain draws water from the Hudson for snowmaking.  By involving environmental groups in the planning of programs like this, concerns are mitigated and we can ensure safety of the Hudson River habitats throughout the year. 

For Excellence in Environmental Education: Gore Mountain's unique Northwoods Knowledge program shares fun information inside each gondola cabin about the history, ecology, and geology of the region.  Gore has hosted environmental field trips for area schools, offers hiking excursions that incorporates environmental education, and hosts educational events. Check out environmental signage throughout the resort. 

For Excellence in Minimization of Visual Impact: Gore won this award in several ways, which included the low-profile design and natural color scheme of the Northwoods Gondola, the intake structure at the Hudson River, the construction of new architecture, and the redevelopment of the historic North Creek Ski Bowl.

Gore was also a finalist for winning a Silver Eagle for Waste Reduction & Recycling, due to its construction efforts of the Northwoods Lodge by Lincoln Logs, which converted the historic gondola loading barn into a one-stop shop for family and snow sports programs, rentals and demos, and group services.
