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.
