More Gore: Lots of Terrain

With 94 alpine trails including 19 glades, Gore Mountain is home to 2,537 vertical feet and the most skiable acreage in New York State.

Adding Acreage and Equipment

The recent expansion to Little Gore Mountain at the historic North Creek Ski Bowl, the development of Burnt Ridge Mountain, and five different terrain park areas offer diverse winter recreation for all levels. A snowmaking system powered by the Hudson River delivers a long winter season, with the mountain typically open from November through April.

Fourteen lifts deliver winter sports enthusiasts to nine sides of Gore’s four unique peaks (Gore, Bear, Burnt Ridge, & Little Gore Mountains).

Gore continues to modernize and improve its facilities each year, adding snowmaking equipment, lift capacity, new trails, base lodge facilities, and customer service and education programs to support four-season recreation.

Year-Round Recreation in Northern Warren County

While many think of Gore Mountain primarily as a winter destination, the mountain area and the surrounding region, including the village of North Creek and the Towns of Johnsburg and Chester offer plenty of recreational opportunities in the three warmer seasons.

  • Spring. The Hudson River, running high from winter snowmelt, offers rafting adventure and excellent fishing. The Gore Mountain region is home to the historic Whitewater Derby during the first weekend in May.
  • Summer. The area comes alive in the summer with even more Adirondack Region events. Take a scenic ride on the Upper Hudson River Railroad, uncover a new treasure on a tour of the Barton Garnet Mines, rise to new heights on a gondola ride. Golf, shopping, boating, hiking, fishing, and biking await.
  • Fall. The spectacular foliage of the Adirondack Mountains offers a brilliant showcase of color. Crisp, comfortable weather complements many outdoor pursuits.

Gore Mountain Connected to Olympic Heritage of New York State

Gore Mountain is operated by the New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA). Originally created by the State of New York to manage the facilities used during the 1980 Olympic Winter Games at Lake Placid, ORDA currently operates venues in North Creek (Warren County), and further to the north in Lake Placid and Highmount, NY.

ORDA’s three ski resorts with year-round activities include:
