Two New Lifts On the Way for 20/21!

The High Peaks Chair is being replaced with a new quad that will deliver skiers to Gore’s true summit, opening up fresh access to all four peaks and the entire Straight Brook Valley. The Sunway Chair is also being upgraded to a new quad, creating an even better experience for everyone. This new lift will feature a modern and comfortable conveyor-style loading area that is ideal for those just getting started and for groups with small children. Look for a better unloading zone a little further up the mountain too.

Terrain Modifications!

Formerly called Cutoff and previously rated as more difficult, this trail in the Northwoods Area is being lengthened and redesigned to become an easier-rated trail. “Pete’s Paradise” will offer an additional beginner option for family-friendly adventures, and another place in Gore’s improved learning area for novices to practice.

More Pumping Capacity!

The reservoir for snowmaking is being expanded, resulting in a significant increase in system capacity. Gore can pump more water through its recently modernized snowmaking infrastructure of automated technologies, energy-saving compressors, and high-efficiency guns to provide quality coverage on more trails earlier in the season.
