Roughly 4 hours drive from New York City, Gore Mountain is a large New York ski resort with a wide range of terrain including wide pistes to carve on and fun trees to weave through. The resort is rarely very crowded and has a more laid-back atmoshpere than nearby Whiteface. It's perfect for a relaxing getaway with family, but those looking for nightlife should look elsewhere.

When Gore has all its distinct mountain zones open there is plenty to be had! I love some of the long cruisers. Several of the steeps are the toughest around. You can find some hidden stashes of snow if you want too!... More
Fabulous!

Fun , variety , multiple pods catering to all types. Great if you’re a wanderer. Hand full of shortish steeps at the top are fun. The real goods are the plentiful glades.... More

Best bet in New York State for advanced skiers looking for challenging terrain. White Face is well...White Face so that leaves Gore. Been skiing in NY for 50 years now and never really hear a glowing report about White Face like "Can't wait to go back". Gore gets the crowds for sure but there is acreage for everyone to spread out. Ski patrol and... More

Gore is the winter wonderland of the East with a big mountain feel and spectacular 360 degree views of many of the near and distant Adirondack mountains. The mountain and surrounding country is clean and unspoiled with the scent of pine all along the lift. The ski area is rustic, not crowded, with great facilities and challenging trails. ... More

Overall I'd say Gore is the best resort to learn to ski and snowboard at in NY. The snow makers and groomers always do an excellent job of keeping the trails pristine despite battling the notorious ice coast winters. Some of the more hidden trails will make you feel like you're off in your own wilderness. There are all types of runs from beginner... More

For some quality Eastern skiing one should visit the Adirondacks and Gore Mountain. Gore isn't a ritzy place and that's fine. There is a nice variety of Chairlifts at the 7 distinct mountain areas that you can avoid the crowds if you want. Glade skiing for those who enjoy it is top-notch. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself every time I have been... More
Superb!
