Thank you so much for tuning in, this is Cindy with your More Gore podcast for the second half of August. Our Summer FSC sale is underway- Save $15 off all skier cards through August 31! We've got card options for all ges that offer savings on every visit this season. Your first day at Gore is free, then enjoy 25% off weekend and holiday visits, and 50% off your midweek non-holiday tickets. The same card works for ticket discounts at Whiteface and Belleayre Mountains, and every sixth day is free too!

This winter we're introducing new direct-to-lift gates! Keep your pass or ticket tucked away in your jacket when you head up the mountain. No more worrying about losing your pass or having to present it to the attendants before your rides. We're also busy constructing a new competition-level freestyle cross course on Wild Air. Read more about our current projects and recent updates at our Mountain Improvements page.

We're open for scenic skyrides and adventure activities Thursday through Sunday until September 1, followed by weekends this fall.  Thursday and Sunday feature skyrides aboard the enclosed 8-passenger Northwoods Gondola while Friday and Saturday offer an open-air experience on our 4-person chairlift ride. Bring your bike and helmet to ride our challenging downhill trails, explore several peaks on our hiking network, or just sit back and enjoy the amazing Adirondack views. Note that the last round-trip skyride boards at 4:15pm on all operating days and our lift schedule is subject to substitution without notice, visit our online activity report for the very latest news.

Our base area is lined with fun attractions like our new family-friendly 300' zipline ride.  There's a bungee trampoline, two climbing structures, and an obstacle inflatable too!  Join us for lunch at the Open Pit Grille on the sundeck, or pick up one of our new themed picnic baskets to take with you on the mountain!

We are partnering with the American Red Cross for a blood drive on Saturday, August 31st. Your donation could make a huge difference in someone else's life. Appointments are available from 9am to 2pm, and the entire process takes just one-hour of your day. Plan to spend the rest of it enjoying our fun activities and refreshing mountain air. Schedule your appointment online in advance- there's a link from our events page.

Keep in mind that all activities are open weather permitting, and refer to our Summer Activity Report online for the most current information.

Thank so much again for tuning in and make it a great day out there!
