Let’s face it, we know this ski season is looking different. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it! There’s nothing better than getting outside and enjoying something you love right now. However, we want you to be prepared for what you can expect before heading to Gore Mountain this year. So, here’s a list of what you need to know before you go so that you can have the best possible experience.
Advance ticketing & season passes
All lift tickets, lessons, and rentals must be purchased online. If the date you’re looking for is booked, please check back as more availability may be added as it becomes available. Consider mid-week to avoid crowds and enjoy shorter lines and more skiing and riding. And don’t worry if you’re a season passholder: you don’t need to make any reservations.
Indoor space is currently limited so try to get as much of your gear on and ready as possible in your car and try to leave as many of your personal belongings as you can in your car. This will limit any unnecessary time indoors for everyone.
Mask on & keep 6 feet apart
For the safety of yourself and others you must wear a double layer face mask at all times, with the exception of when you are actively skiing or riding, or if you are seated for dining. They’ll help keep your face a little bit warmer if anything!
Ride with your crew
Skiers and riders that arrived together can ride the lifts together. If you are a single skier or rider, you’re welcome to take a lift solo. Don’t forget to keep your face covering on while you wait in lift lines and for the duration of your ride. Gondola windows must remain open during the ride, but that’s okay because you’ll get to enjoy the fresh mountain air.
Limited capacity & takeout food
Indoor space will be limited and tables inside are spaced 6 feet apart and can only be occupied for up to 30 minutes. Try some of Gore Mountain’s new grab and go takeout food options or bring your own food in your own personal pack and enjoy it outside. If you do need to sit down and eat inside, try to avoid the busier lunch hour of approximately noon.
Follow NYS’s travel advisory
With ever changing guidelines, it is important to stay up to date with New York state’s travel advisory. For more information on what is happening in our region, please take a look at our travel updates page. We will keep it updated with what’s open, what restrictions there are, and any other important information we think you might want/need to know.
As always, remember to socially distance when possible, wash your hands, wear your mask, and stay kind. Gore Mountain will continue to update their operational information as necessary and ensure that everyone has a safe experience at the mountain.
