Gore Mountain is the largest ski center in the Lake George Area! For over 8 decades, generations of skiing enthusiasts have returned each season and become like family.
Gore is a family-friendly mountain located in the heart of the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. There's a ton of terrain to ski at Gore, offering over 2500' vertical feet, 119 trails scattered over four different peaks. Gore Mountain has the 6th greatest vertical drop in the east, boasting the most ski-able terrain in New York State - 439 acres. 14 lifts, an eight-passenger Northwoods Gondola and two high-speed quads, 2 Quads, 3 Triples, 2 Doubles and 4 Surface. There is 97% snowmaking which means each run - each turn and each day is great with 110 Alpine Trails, 28 Glades, 9 Freestyle areas and 11 Cross-Country/Snowshoe loops.
Hit up the Burnt Ridge section of the mountain or the Top Ridge Triple Chair to ski or ride gliding cruisers. Take the Straight Brook Quad to the top of Gore for a full medley of gnarly steeps and peaceful glade runs. Be brave and send it on our seven different freestyle areas. Remember to start small, wear a helmet, and always check your landings before liftoff! Our Trail Map has been redesigned which highlights the varied and multi-mountain Gore experience.
Six on-mountain dining options keep you fueled during a busy day on the hill. Grab breakfast or lunch at the Base Lodge Food Court or choose something from the Open Pit Grille and sit on the picnic tables outside. Corduroy Cafe starts your day serving specialty coffee drinks and morning treats then you can finish your day with a·près-ski foods and libations. For a full lunch and a soda or beer head to the Tannery Pub & Restaurant. For a mid-mountain snack, stop at the Saddle Lodge at the top of the Adirondack Express quad. At The Summit skiers and riders can pop into the old Gondola loading station to warm up, use the restroom, or just hang out.
For even more winter fun, head to the North Creek Ski Bowl. Snowbirds can explore the Nordic network - Nordic and snowshoe trails - only two of the eleven trails require natural snow. The network feature easier trails - A; H; J and K. The more difficult trails are - B; C; D; E; F; G and I. At the Ski Bowl you can watch professional events, grab some air in the halfpipe, and more!
