Thank you for visiting our website, and we are thinking of you and your family- we miss our skiers.  We have suspended operations, along with the other New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority managed ski areas and venues.   During this time, Gore is closed to the public and is not accessible for any recreational activities, or for retrieving belongings from your locker.  We understand that some of you have personal equipment stored in rental lockers, and we want you to know that our facilities are secured.  We will update you about picking up these items when an approved procedure is in place, and will post other updates here as new information becomes available.  This is a difficult time and we appreciate everyone's help and cooperation in being part of the solution.  Thank you and from our family to yours, stay safe and healthy.

Special Notes

We have extended our timelines on season passes for 20/21, and there are no pass price increases over last year when you purchase on or before August 12.  More information about passes can be found here.  Be sure to check out our list of season-long perks and keep in mind our free payment plan is also available for pass purchases through August 12.  If you are renewing your pass, use our online "WTP Reloads" feature to conveniently retain your same SKI3 Card.

Mountain Improvements

Recent Improvements

New Direct-To-Lift Gates for Winter 19/20

Gore Mountain recently installed new lift access gates equipped with RFID technology.  All lift access (tickets, season passes, frequent skier cards) is now applied to new SKI3 Cards, which you keep tucked away securely in your jacket.  No more worrying about losing your ticket or pass on the mountain or having to present it to the attendants before your rides.  Our new SKI3 Cards can be renewed online for several years so hang onto yours! It will always allow you to renew your passes and tickets online, therefore allowing you to go directly from your car to the slopes.

New Competition-Level Freestyle Course for Winter 19/20

The Pot Luck and Wild Air trails have joined forces to deliver a premier competition course.  Look for a prime jump line and new earthen features that mean serious action on event days, and all-around extra fun and big air the other days.  Gore Mountain was thrilled to host the 2020 NorAm Hole Shot & Revolution Tour and several USASA events on this new course.

New Burnt Ridge Mountain Warming Cabin for Winter 19/20

Spend more time on Burnt Ridge Mountain next season, because now there's a little cabin for warming up between laps!  This recent improvement was completed in partnership with our friends at NYSEF & The Town of Johnsburg.

New Gore Mountain Logo

Check out our new logo!  It has some fun "hidden" features- it's in the shape of a sideways "G" with four peaks depicted, along with a nod at the ORDA logo and a reminder of the historic mark.

More Gore Means More Snow

You're here to enjoy the snow.  Making more of it- faster- is and will continue to be our priority.  We essentially rebuilt our snowmaking system and Gore's newly increased snowmaking capabilities are now better matched to its immense expanse of varied Adirondack terrain.  We have integrated the most updated snowmaking technologies, we have introduced hundreds more of the latest guns, and we have developed an all-new infrastructure for increasing and improving water pumping capacity and distribution.  We make more snow in less time, which is better for both the environment and your skiing experience.  Our crews now work smarter, faster, and more efficiently, with new abilities to control key snowmaking areas remotely.

Family-Friendly Zipline Ride for Summer/Fall 2019

This new attraction allows riders soar across the Base Area down a 300-foot line.  Two lines allow for two people to go at the same time on a short but exhilarating ride.

New Downhill Mountain Bike Trail for Summer/Fall 2019

We've cleaned up trails, crafted banked turns, and added fun features for our extreme downhill mountain bikers.  The Sidewinder trail has been reshaped for an even better ride.  There’s a new bike trail too- check out Sidetracked.

New Electric Car Charging Stations

Charge your car as you re-charge on the mountain.  We're offering six new ChargePoint stations in Lot C.  Thanks to drivers of electric cars for your commitment to renewable energy and environmental sustainability!

A Two-Story Base Lodge Addition

We've built a large two-level addition to the Base Lodge that has doubled the size of the Tannery Pub & Restaurant, which also received a complete renovation and expanded kitchen.  With this newly added space, the Tannery seats up to 435 people and offers year-round facilities for special events including banquets, weddings, and conferences.  The lower level addition now houses the brand-new headquarters for the popular Season-Long Mountain Adventure programs for kids, and more seasonal lockers!

A Freshly Paved Base Area

Much of the upper lot was repaved during Summer 2019.  During the previous summer, the resort entrance and walkways were dressed up with a fresh coat of blacktop as well.

Beautiful Saddle Lodge

Winter 17-18 unveiled a brand-new mid-mountain experience at the Saddle Lodge.  The size of the space more than doubled, and occupancy increased from 100 people to 238.  Between runs, treat yourself to a food court style meal, and dine in front of a spectacular showcase of the Adirondack High Peaks.  Updates to the Saddle Lodge included an attractively styled vernacular, an expanded and updated kitchen to serve a more creative menu, new bathrooms, and an approachable façade and lobby area upon entry.

New Straight Brook Lodge

The adventurous guests of Gore Mountain's summit have a new place to warm up and chill out at the Straight Brook Lodge.  A complete renovation of the original 1967 gondola unloading station kept the original structure and most of the lift machinery intact while facilitating the basics of shelter, restrooms, and a place for socializing and camaraderie between skiers.  Inside there is a warming room with tables and benches, vending machines, and eco-friendly composting toilets.

Northwoods Lodge Addition

A 2017-18 addition to the Northwoods Lodge offers a larger rental and repair shop!  There is also more space for the children's Mountain Adventure programs, and improved arrival and registration processes.  Larger restrooms on the lower level include a "family restroom" to better accommodate parents with young children.

Other Updates

Gore was recently presented with the esteemed Golden Eagle Award for Overall Environmental Excellence.  These awards are overseen by a partnership between SKI Magazine and National Ski Areas Association and are the industry's most prestigious honor for recognizing resort environmental programs and projects.  Gore's award-winning sustainability efforts are led by 25-year solar energy power purchasing agreements.  We've constructed 14,589 ground-mounted solar panels on 20 acres; those panels started producing energy in 2016 and offset most of Gore's energy needs.  Gore also continued its long-term investment in high-efficiency snowmaking by converting some of our snowmaking pumps to operate on variable rather than fixed drives.  Several other environmental initiatives contributing to Gore's achievement include increased service of locally produced foods, strategic trail modifications that conserve energy, and redevelopment of the historic North Creek Ski Bowl with "recycled" trails and earthen freestyle features, among other environmentally-friendly enhancements that guests can see, enjoy, and learn about each day!

NINE SIDES OF FOUR MOUNTAINS

Gore offers the most terrain in New York State and 2537' vertical.  We are committed to improvements that always make our 42 miles and 439 acres of fun a better experience.  Here's a small sample of what you'll find at Gore:

  • An 8-passenger high-speed gondola, servicing every level of terrain, including the easier-rated "Ruby Run" Trail
  • Seven individual mountain areas, each offering its own distinctive mountain adventure
  • Four lodges with recently renovated space- Base Lodge offers ticketing, seating & lockers, and four dining options; Northwoods Lodge conveniently centralizes rentals, ticketing, children's programs, Guest Services, and group sales; the mid-mountain Saddle Lodge features food court style dining; Straight Brook Lodge at Gore's summit offers the most adventurous guests a brand-new place to warm up and socialize!
  • A snowmaking system linked to the endless water supply of the Hudson River
  • Eight freestyle areas, offering unique experiences for the beginner, intermediate, and expert freestyler
  • 28 different glades providing extensive backcountry excitement
  • "The Rumor," arguably the steepest trail in the East
Construction

Gore is always making your next day better. We work all year to improve amenities, enhance services, and add to your experience both on and off the snow. Here's how it's done.
