Big Updates from Gore Mountain, NY
TWO NEW LIFTS FOR 20/21 ON THE WAY!
The High Peaks Chair is being replaced with a new quad that will deliver skiers to Gore’s true summit, opening up fresh access to all four peaks and the entire Straight Brook Valley. The Sunway Chair is also being upgraded with a new quad, creating an even better experience for everyone. This new lift will feature a modern and comfortable conveyor-style loading area that is ideal for those just getting started and for groups with small children. Look for a better unloading zone a little further up the mountain too.
The Cutoff trail, previously rated as more difficult, is being lengthened and redesigned as an easier-rated trail. It will offer an additional beginner option for family-friendly adventures, and another place in Gore’s improved learning area for novices to practice.
The reservoir for snowmaking is being expanded, resulting in a significant increase of system capacity. Gore can pump more water through its recently modernized snowmaking infrastructure of automated technologies, energy-saving compressors, and high-efficiency guns to provide quality coverage on more trails earlier in the season.
New for Winter 19/20
Gore Mountain installed new direct-to-lift access gates equipped with RFID technology. 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 SKI3 Cards can be renewed online for several years so hang onto yours! The Pot Luck and Wild Air trails have joined forces to deliver a premier competition freestyle 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 was thrilled to host the 2020 NorAm Hole Shot & Revolution Tour and several USASA events on this new course. Spend more time on Burnt Ridge Mountain next season, because now there’s a little cabin for warming up between laps! This recent improvement was completed in partnership with our friends at NYSEF & The Town of Johnsburg.
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.
New Family-Friendly Zipline Ride and Downhill Mountain Bike Trail for Summer/Fall 2019
This attraction allows riders soar across the Base Area down a 300-foot line. Two lines allow for two people to go at the same time on a short but exhilarating ride. There’s a new bike trail too- check out Sidetracked.
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!
A Two-Story Base Lodge Addition & Other Updates
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! Winter 17-18 unveiled a brand-new mid-mountain experience at the Saddle Lodge. The size of the space more than doubled. 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. The adventurous guests of Gore Mountain’s summit have a great 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. An 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.
