We are expecting the snow and mixed precipitation to stay with us throughout Thursday as more winter-like makes a welcome return- look for conditions tightening throughout the day as the temperatures drop and the winds pick up.  The snow coverage is excellent and groomers have laid out the goods on miles of terrain from summit to Saddle to Village Slopes!   You can keep your turns going right through 8pm under the lights at the North Creek Ski Bowl.  On Saturday, plan on joining us for our Leap Day Scavenger Hunt- you can earn stickers throughout the mountain and get your card validated for a chance to win a new pair of skis!  Check our e-ticket deals online to reload your SKI3 Card online in advance for direct-to-lift access, or plan to get your SKI3 Card at the mountain if you're joining us for the first time this season.

Mountain Improvements

The Gore Mountain experience just keeps getting better!

Recent & Upcoming Improvements

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

We are excited about new gates at the lifts! 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.

COMPLETE: New Competition-Level Freestyle Course for Winter 19/20

The Pot Luck and Wild Air trails are joining 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 is thrilled to be hosting the 2020 Hole Shot NorAm Snowboard/Skicross, Monday-Friday, February 3-7 on this new course!

COMPLETE: Burnt Ridge Mountain Warming Cabin for Winter 19/20

Spend more time on Burnt Ridge Mountain this season, because now there's a little cabin for warming up between laps! This new improvement has been completed in partnership with our friends at NYSEF & The Town of Johnsburg, we look forward to it making the Burnt Ridge Mountain experience even better this winter.

COMPLETE: 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, particularly during the last twelve months. 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.

COMPLETE: New Family-Friendly Zipline Ride for Summer/Fall 2019!

A new family-friendly zipline ride has added to our warm-weather fun! Two lines allow for two people to go at the same time on a short but exhilarating ride. More information coming soon.

COMPLETE: 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! There’s a new bike trail too- check out Sidetracked, and the Sidewinder trail has been reshaped as well for an even better ride!

COMPLETE: 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!

COMPLETE: 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!

COMPLETE: A Freshly Paved Base Area!

Much of the upper lot has been repaved during Summer 2019. Last summer the resort entrance and walkways were dressed up with a fresh coat of blacktop as well.

COMPLETE: 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.

COMPLETE: 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.

COMPLETE: Northwoods Lodge Addition!

A 17-18 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!


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 independently offering their own 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 full-service and food court style dining; and 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

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.
