Skiing and snowboarding are in full swing, and if you haven’t been to Gore Mountain yet this year, you’ll want to make your plans now! New for this snow season are several great changes, including convenient technological improvements and additions that will make your trip to the slopes even more enjoyable. Read on to learn all the details!
Simplify Your Trips to the Slopes with Direct-to-Lift Gates
Thanks to newly-installed RFID technology, there’s no need to take out your pass when going through the gates, which will read the RFID chips built into Gore’s new Ski3 Cards. The automatic process allows you to keep your pass safely tucked away in your pocket and makes your journey to the lifts that much faster and easier. The cards are reloadable online for direct-to-lift access at Gore, Whiteface, and Belleayre. Hold onto your card and plan to use it for several years! This prevents waste and avoids replacement fees.
Catch Some Air on a Competition-Level Freestyle Course
Gore Mountain’s new competition-level course is something you must experience for yourself if you love freestyle. The course uses both the Pot Luck and Wild Air trails and features new earthen features and a prime jump line.
In addition, Gore’s new freestyle course will proudly host the Hole Shot & Rev Tour Cross Events February 3 – 7, 2020 as well as the February 2023 World University Games.
Power Up Your Electric Car at One of Their New Charging Stations
Have an electric car? You’ll now be able to charge it up as you hit the slopes. Six ChargePoint stations have been added to Lot C.
Spot Clever Nods in Their New Logo
The new logo channels a few influences, including a snow cap to pay homage to the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) logo and two main mountains in honor of the previous Gore Mountain logo. The new design features a sideways G with four mountain peaks that signify Gore, Little Gore, Bear, and Burnt Ridge Mountains.
Take A Break at Burnt Ridge Mountain’s New Warming Cabin
A new warming cabin has been built on Burnt Ridge Mountain. The vicinity of the cabin boasts stunning views and is the perfect spot to take a break when on the slopes. NYSEF and the Town of Johnsburg both collaborated with Gore to build the new cabin.
Warm Up in the Larger-Than-Ever Base Lodge
When you’re not skiing or snowboarding down the slopes, you’ll want to checkout the latest improvements to the Base Lodge. The new two-story addition has doubled the size of Tannery Pub & Restaurant, which has been renovated and given a larger kitchen. The restaurant can now seat as many as 435 guests and can host special events and weddings year-round.
Other improvements from the addition include the new headquarters of Season-Long Mountain Adventure Program for Kids, as well as more seasonal lockers.
Experience More Powder Thanks to Improved Snowmaking Technology
Gore has rebuilt their snowmaking system with the newest technologies, new snow guns, and great water pumping capacity. The result is a snowmaking system that’s tailored for Gore’s terrain, speeds up the process, and allows them to control it remotely.
These improvements join Gore Mountain‘s full slate of other exciting amenities and are a great reason to make time for a trip to the slopes.
