Gore Mountain is open Thursday-Sunday for summer fun, and has two new activities for guests to enjoy. A new zipline ride offers up to two people at a time an opportunity to soar for about 300′ over the Base Area.
Also, open-air chairlift rides aboard the high-speed Adirondack Express will alternate with the traditional Northwoods Gondola rides to provide another option for taking in the views and accessing a variety of hiking and mountain biking terrain.
Other attractions include a Climbing Challenge Course, Bungee Trampoline, Climbing Wall, and Obstacle Inflatable. New Picnic Basket Lunches are available from the sundeck’s Open Pit Grille, complete with a picnic blanket to take on the mountain. The Grille also offers a variety of summer classics for lunch or snacks.
Two new downhill mountain bike trails, Ridge Runner (expert) and Sidetracked (intermediate), have been added and several of the existing trails have been improved.
Upcoming events include Candle Making each weekend through October 6; Mountain Bike Skills Development Camps on August 10 and September 21; an American Red Cross Blood Drive on August 31; Family Savings Weekend September 7 and 8; a Mountaintop Yoga Class September 15; Carl Heilman II Photo Workshop on September 21; and the popular Gore Mountain Harvest Fest on October 12 and 13.
Gore Mountain’s 2019-2020 season pass holders can enjoy free skyrides and several on-mountain perks all summer and fall. Gore’s best prices for the upcoming season passes and free financing plan are available through August 16. For the upcoming season, Gore is introducing direct-to-lift RFID ticketing, a new glade off Sunway, and a competition-level freestyle cross course on Wild Air.
