One Pass, Three Resorts: Discover the NY SKI3 Experience
Can you imagine having access to 250+ trails, 882 acres, and a combined 7,300 vertical feet of skiing and riding in New York State? If that’s your idea of a perfect winter, then you need a SKI3 Season Pass from Gore Mountain.
Most of Gore’s season passes are SKI3 Season Passes, which are part of the NY SKI3 Experience. Basically, this type of season pass lets you access and enjoy special perks at three of New York State’s ski resorts – Gore, Whiteface, and Belleayre. It’s an amazing opportunity to test your skills on some of the Northeast’s top trails.
Enjoy Peace of Mind with 100% SKI3 Assurance
Although Gore is looking forward to another fun-filled winter, they are offering 100% SKI3 Assurance so you can buy a season pass with confidence. If any unexpected situations come up from now through December 1, 2020, you can request SKI3 Assurance and the ski resort will transfer the full amount of your pass purchase onto a Snow Guarantee Card valid toward season pass, lift ticket, and/or lesson purchases through Closing Day, Spring 2022.
You may use your Snow Guarantee Card online or in person at Gore, Whiteface, or Belleayre Mountains, and all 2020-21 season passes are eligible for SKI3 Assurance, including single mountain and limited passes. Requests for SKI3 Assurance can be made online starting September 25, 2020, and you’ll receive your purchase credit after the December 1 deadline. If you purchased a season pass with a payment plan, you’ll receive purchase credit after the final payment is successfully made.
The SKI3 Assurance Credit is available for any 2020-21 season pass sold at Gore, Whiteface, or Belleayre (even if the pass is valid at just one of the resorts). You can still get full purchase credit if you use your pass before the deadline.
Learn About Closure Credits and COVID-19
In addition to 100% SKI3 Assurance, Gore Mountain has a plan in place in case they need to close any day between December 1, 2020 and March 15, 2021, due to COVID-19. If the ski resort fully closes due to the pandemic, 2020-21 passholders will receive a proportional purchase credit based on the total number of days that both Gore Mountain was closed and your pass was valid. This purchase credit will be issued to passholders at the end of the season and will be valid through Closing Day, Spring 2022.
Gore Mountain’s Guest Services Office is prepared to accommodate individual circumstances related to injury, medical issues, or official government travel restrictions. These situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Ski, Ride & Explore Gore Mountain This Winter
For many skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, and cross-country skiers, Gore Mountain is their winter home. Located in North Creek, this premier ski resort features four unique peaks, 14 lifts, and over 100 trails that are just waiting to be conquered.
For the 2020-21 winter season, the resort is replacing their High Peaks Chair with a new quad that will take skiers to Gore’s true summit, opening up access to all four peaks and the entire Straight Brook Valley. They are also upgrading the Sunway Chair with a new quad featuring a modern and comfortable conveyor-style loading area that’s perfect for beginners and kids. These new lifts will offer a greater ski experience for all visitors.
A 2020-21 season pass will allow you to visit as often as you’d like this winter and see why people return to Gore year after year. You’ll be able to ski and ride down the alpine trails and explore the groomed cross-country trails at the Nordic Center.
Best of all, your season pass comes with a number of “Mountains Plus” perks, including:
- Built-in bonus lift ticket for another guest (non-holiday)
- Save 50% off the regular price of a lift ticket (non-holiday)
- Discounts on food, drinks, retail products, and services
- Free scenic skyrides during summer/fall 2020
- Access to downhill mountain biking and hiking trails during summer/fall 2020
- And more
The list of passholder perks continues to grow, and you can keep track of them all on Gore’s website.
Plan Your Next Trip to Gore
Gore is currently open for their summer season every week from Thursday – Sunday. Guests can enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities, such as hiking, downhill mountain biking, scenic skyrides, and disc golf.
A 2020-21 winter season pass lets you access most summer activities for free, and passholders receive one free round of disc golf at the mountain. To keep everyone safe, Gore has implemented social distancing regulations, reduced capacity at the restrooms, set up hand sanitizing stations near ticket windows and at the top and bottom of the skyride lifts, and closed the Base Lodge for summer. The Northwoods Lodge and Saddle Lodge are open.
