We are gearing up for a fantastic snow season, and we can't wait to see you.  We are wrapping up a major makeover to our snowmaking system, which now features a new pump house and pipe to increase our water pumping capacity by 42% (that's 2,000 MORE gallons of water per minute).  We're also welcoming 312 new automated tower guns that can be controlled remotely to help our crews make snow faster, smarter, and more efficiently.  Meanwhile, a two-story addition on the Base Lodge is going to double the size of the Tannery Pub, your favorite apres-ski spot.  The new space also offers more room for lockers and our popular season-long childrens' programs.  

Special Notes

The best prices for 18-19 season passes are available through November 26- our passes include tons of perks both on and off the mountain, including great discounts at other ski areas this winter!  Frequent skier cards and Snow Sampler 4-packs are also on sale- buy yours online today!  Please note that our summer and fall operations are closed, but we hope to see you for our upcoming Job Fairs on October 27 and November 8.  We are hiring in several departments and are also looking for Mountain Host volunteers!

Wax 'n' Wix Candle Making Workshop

Wax 'n' Wix Candle Making Workshop

Wax 'n' Wix is bringing their "Make Your Own" candle shop to the Northwoods Lodge.  Add the spectacular views and comfortable ambiance at Gore Mountain to the interesting and rewarding activity of creating a beautifully handcrafted candle, for a "One of a Kind", memorable Adirondack experience.

Using our safe and fun process, which is suitable for individuals of all ages and skills, choose the shape of your candle, the color of wax, and a unique fragrance. You place the colored wax into prepared candle molds, Wax 'n' Wix chandler adds the hot wax and the scent. In 30 minutes, your beautiful, fragrant, handcrafted candle is ready and you enjoy the satisfying sense of a job well done!

All materials are provided, as well as the friendly and helpful instruction you need to complete this interesting and engaging task. Our "Candle Makers" enjoy the entire process. There are always a lot of laughs around the table as the members sample the various fragrances and plan their colored wax arrangement. The final product is beautiful!

We offer many shapes in two size options.  1lb candle is $10, 1 ¼ lb candle is $14.  Wax 'n' Wix provides everything, including molds, colored wax, a fragrance and detailed candle making instructions.

Walk-ups are welcome throughout the day.  Our workshop is open both days this weekend.  Allow for additional time on the mountain to enjoy a scenic gondola skyride or explore Gore's hiking/biking trail network and adventure activities.  Also look for our workshop during Harvest Fest 2018!
