Staying Safe On The Mountain

While visiting Gore, practice social distancing by allowing at least 6 feet between yourself/your party and other guests.  We require face coverings (masks) whenever social distancing cannot be maintained when acquiring tickets, at our sundeck foodservice and retail, inside our lodges, at skyride loading & unloading areas, and throughout the experience aboard the enclosed gondola.  Guests may board the skyride with members of their party or alone.  Review our Operational Updates page for more safety information to best prepare for your visit.  We can't wait to see you on the mountain!
