Harvest Fest Activities

Mountain Master Craft Harvest Fest Live Music

Skyrides, Live Music, Craft Show, and Recreational Activities – October 8-9!

Our four peaks will be illuminated with a colorful autumn showcase, providing prime leaf-peeping opportunities. It’s the perfect weekend to welcome fall and get some fresh Adirondack air! While this time of year does get us excited for winter, there’s plenty of foliage and activities to enjoy on the mountain before the snowmakers get to work.

We are open Saturday and Sunday for scenic skyrides, hiking, mountain biking, and disc golf. Choose your skyride aboard either the open-air Adirondack Express or the enclosed Northwoods Gondola. A short hike between the lifts offers the unique opportunity to experience both rides with the same ticket. Take along one of our scavenger hunt game cards or participate in a fun hiking challenge. The last ride up on either lift is at 3:45pm. If you have a downhill biking ticket valid either day this weekend, please bring your mountain bike up on the Adirondack Express open-air chairlift.

The final craft show in our Mountain Master Craft Series meets both days- slopeside shopping this weekend will feature over 40 talented artisans spread across the base area. Browse handcrafted items such as original paintings and photography, furniture made of locally reclaimed wood, unique handmade jewelry, ceramics and pottery, all-natural bath & beauty essentials, primitives & Adirondack decor, NY-made wines and spirits, specialty food items, and more. Enjoy live performances from the Dancing Witches on Saturday, and Amanda Rae Daviner and Seth Warden of Warden and Co. on Sunday. Artisans interested in booth space can learn more and complete our vendor application here.

Guests can look for hearty, fall-inspired menus from the Open Pit Grille on the sundeck and indoors at the Base Lodge Food Court. For adults, a full bar will be available in the Tannery Pub and cold brews will be served at satellite bars around the base area. Stop by our Retail Shop for Gore gifts, souvenirs, and logo wear- check out the sale racks for some amazing deals on summer merchandise and winter outerwear to help us make room for new gear and apparel!

Get ready for winter with a 3-Pack of Monday-Friday, Non-Holiday Gore Lift Tickets for just $179. This festival-exclusive ticket pack is only available for purchase on October 8 & 9, either in person at Gore Mountain or over the phone at (518) 251-2411.
