We hope you are staying safe and healthy, and we can't wait to welcome you back soon.  Although Gore is presently closed to the public, we look forward to posting information about our schedule and activities as it becomes available.  2020-2021 season passes are on sale- there are no price increases over last year, plus our free financing plan is available when you purchase on or before August 12.  If you are renewing your pass, use our online "WTP Reloads" feature to conveniently retain your same SKI3 Card.

Special Notes

In the interest of everyone's health, we are asking for no visitors to the mountain at this time.  We understand that some of you have personal equipment stored in rental lockers, and we’re working on a procedure that will allow you to safely collect your belongings.  This procedure and other updates will be posted here as they become available.  We appreciate everyone's help and cooperation in being part of the solution during these trying times, and we look forward to getting back to the activities we all love soon.
