Gore Mountain's Commitment to Solar and Sustainability
Gore Mountain is home to a 25-year solar energy project, the largest solar array dedicated to a ski area in the United States. In addition, Gore is actively decreasing energy use and continuing a long-term investment in high-efficiency snowmaking. The solar array saved nearly $124,000 in one year and the new, efficient snow guns saved 860,000 kWh of energy translating to a reduction of 946,000 pounds of carbon dioxide. These projects make Gore an industry model for its reduction of kilowatt hours used and offsets of CO2. The ski area is also expanding recycling, creatively repurposing buildings and materials, offering locally produced foods, and offsetting energy use through strategic trail modifications. More than 250,000 visitors come to Gore Mountain each year.

Electric Car Charging Stations!
Complete: Charge your car as you re-charge on the mountain. For this winter, we're excited to offer six new ChargePoint stations located in Lot C. Thanks to drivers of electric cars for your commitment to renewable energy and environmental sustainability!

Press Release 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 have been 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.  In 2016, Gore's signature venture was the signing of a two-project, 25-year solar energy contract. 14,589 ground-mounted solar panels were constructed on 20 acres; those panels are offsetting approximately 85% of our mountain's energy use annually.

Press Release 5/25/16:  Gore Mountain Wins National Award For Environmental Excellence!

Presented by SKI Magazine, the Golden Eagle is the industry's most prestigious award for sustainability, and Gore's broad range of environmental stewardship across several areas of its operation was integral to its win. At the same time, Gore Mountain successfully demonstrated that a growing resort (its acreage and uphill capacity have increased 131 percent and 142 percent respectively over the last 20 years) can simultaneously be sustainable.

Since 2000, Gore has won three "Silver Eagle" awards, which are competitive environmental excellence awards in regard to a specific discipline. They were:

  • For Excellence in Environmental Group Relations
  • For Excellence in Environmental Education
  • For Excellence in Minimization of Visual Impact

Gore was also a finalist for winning a Silver Eagle for Waste Reduction & Recycling.
