Thank goodness it's Friday- Mother Nature is predicted to sprinkle us with flurries all day, helping us get into the holiday and skiing spirit!  Our midweek skiers have been loving the soft snow and fantastic coverage.  Lower Sleighride has a few berms and rollers now, check out a little more freestyle action added to the mix.  Groomers are laying down the goods on 100% of open terrain, and snowmakers have lit up Showcase, 2B, Uncas, and Tannery while finishing Lower Sunway as well.   All of this terrain is planned to open throughout the weekend, so stay tuned.  You can now check out a longer stretch of Sunway, open to the 3B trail.  Please note the Northwoods Gondola is open for intermediates and experts only today- beginners should find their turns on Bear Cub Run. 

Special Notes

Friday's lift ticket prices are discounted to $69 for adults, $59 for teens and seniors, and just $39 for juniors- save an additional $10pp when you donate a non-perishable food item at the window!  Enjoy lunch at the Food Court- Fridays's special is a Fish Fry- hand-breaded haddock with french fries and your choice of tartar or cocktail sauce for $12.  RFID Tip: Keep your new SKI3 Card in a pocket all by itself when passing through the gates.  Our Nordic Center at the Ski Bowl is open noon-6pm today!  Safety reminder: Riding the lift with small children?  Load so the smallest one is located between you and the lift attendant.

Scenic Skyrides

Enjoy a relaxing ride and scenic views- we are open Saturday & Sunday through October 13!

Try our scenic skyrides for an unforgettable adventure!

A great way to spend a half-hour at Gore or the entire day.  Enjoy stunning views of the High Peaks and Southern Adirondacks, and take the opportunity to hike and picnic, or bring your mountain bike and helmet along and try our challenging downhill trails. The last round-trip skyride is at 4:15pm.

Gondola and Chairlift are both open* for Harvest Fest 2019 (Oct 12-13)

On our Adirondack Express 4-person chairlift, enjoy the sounds of nature as the ride whisks you through lush greenery to the unloading platform at our mid-mountain Saddle area.  Take the short walk to our recently renovated Saddle Lodge, relax and enjoy scenic views spanning as far north as the High Peaks.  After soaking up these stunning mountain vistas, take the Sidewinder hike/bike trail to Bear Mountain, the Cloud trail to Gore's true summit, or the Twister Cliffs trail to scenic outlooks on Burnt Ridge Mountain!  Note that all chairlift passengers must exit the chair onto our unloading platform at the top of the lift, and passengers are reloaded on every fourth chair of the downhill side for the skyride descent.  Watch a video of a Scenic Skyride aboard the open-air chairlift.

Aboard the Northwoods Gondola, guests are fully enclosed in an 8-passenger cabin. Our gondola cabins can easily fit mountain bikes, strollers, wheelchairs, and walkers- these cabins are also ideal for small children or for those timid of heights. The gondola will deliver guests to the summit of the Bear Mountain, where the Fairview observation deck and mountaintop labyrinth are a short stroll away.  Traverse the Alpine Sky Loop (a 15-20 minute interpretive hike), and access the hiking and biking trail networks.

*All activities are open weather permitting, and the lift schedule is subject to substitution without notice.
