Snow Conditions for Thursday, April 17

Greetings from Gore!
Here's a lineup of information for our final week of this snow season:
Thursday & Friday, April 17-18: Season passholders are invited to bring one friend along FREE.
Sunday, April 20:  In honor of the arrival of the first snow train in 1934, Easter Sunday pricing will be $34 for ages 13 and older and FREE for ages 12 and under. Guests are encouraged to visit the Marketing Office located downstairs in the Base Lodge for a complimentary limited-edition commemorative anniversary poster. 
A memorable way to start the Easter holiday is during Gore Mountain's 7am nondenominational sunrise service atop Bear Mountain. The Northwoods Gondola will begin loading passengers at 6:30am, and guests may either ski to the base area or take the gondola back down following the service. Rev. Wayne Schoonmaker will lead this popular and free community event, which also features mountaintop singers and instrumentalists.
Following the service, a delicious Easter buffet will be offered in the Tannery Pub from 7:30am-12:30pm. Enjoy an array of items including vanilla malt waffles with bananas foster, French toast strata, sausage gravy and biscuits, seasonal fruit display, and much more. Prices are $14.95 for ages 10 and up, and $5.95 for ages 9 and under.

See you on the slopes!

Hiking Excursions


Enjoy self-guided tours with interpretive signage, pick up a summer trail map at the ticket desk.  Longer guided hiking excursions over multiple peaks of the Gore range are available by reservation.


All scenic riders may enjoy self-guided hikes available in both the Base Area and Bear Mountain Summit at the top of the Northwoods Gondola. These "eco-loops" are designed for approximately a 30-min walk, and offer interpretive signage to keep you on track, as well as some education if you're interested!


Ask about our new guided hiking opportunities! Accompany one of our knowledgeable mountain hosts on these longer excursions that will take you over multiple peaks of the Gore Mountain Range. Hikes are 2-3 hours in length. Scenic skyride, bottled water, and trail snack included! Guided hikes are available during scheduled operating hours. Sample excursions are listed below, 48-hour advance reservations are required.  Call (518) 251-2411, X1008 or email

Please meet your host at 11:45am at the mid lodge ticket desk. Hikes will depart at noon from the summit of Bear Mountain (located at the top of the gondola). You must have: good hiking shoes (no sandals or flip-flops!) and plenty of water. Remember your prescriptions or allergy medicines if needed. Sunscreen, insect repellant, and the appropriate layers are also recommended. If you're going on an excursion, you need to be in good physical condition; our guided hikes are moderate to strenuous.

1) Burnt Ridge Tour – Tackle two mountains in one day! Take the gondola to the summit of Bear Mountain, and then traverse over to another peak in the Gore Range, Burnt Ridge! The great cliff top views, glacial erratics, unique geology, and varied forest types in this area make for memorable photos and a true wilderness experience.

2) Bear Mountain Discovery – Explore areas like the historic gondola midstation, a timeline of nature’s reclamation of beaver dams, bear trees, a variety of ecosystems, and the water-view panoramics of the Topridge Area on this sunny southeast hike! Off the beaten path, this walk offers the best opportunity to see wildlife, but unfortunately there are no guarantees!

3) Colvin’s Summit View - Head from the top of Bear Mountain to find the true summit of Gore, something that challenged the Adirondacks’ earliest surveyors and still challenges the USGS. Find Verplanck Colvin’s rare survey rings, still in place from the late 1800’s. This hike is the best, most scenic way to understand the multiple peaks of Gore Mountain’s vast layout. After taking in Gore’s signature view atop the Cloud trail, make your way back to the gondola for a relaxing ride down.

4) Gore’s Northern Frontier – Help us celebrate Gore Mountain’s recent Interconnect with the Historic North Creek Ski Bowl while you explore the North Creek Reservoir, Rabbit Pond, and the pipeline to the base of Little Gore Mountain. Waterfalls, beaver ponds, very interesting geology and plant life, and much more await. Return shuttle service from the Ski Bowl provided.
