Gore’s Original Base Camp since 1934

Located at the foot of Little Gore Mountain, one of our four developed peaks, this second hub of Gore keeps a cherished history close, while steadily unfolding a variety of new adventures for you to discover. The Ski Bowl offers alpine skiing and snowboarding, freestyle fun, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, and more!

Learn more about the exciting North Creek Ski Bowl Project! In partnership with the Town of Johnsburg and the State of New York, Gore Mountain will break ground for the North Creek Ski Bowl Lodge, a new Hudson Chair, and Zip Coaster in 2024.

Ski Bowl Overview

Ski where the locals do – link up with all four sprawling peaks and add some adventure to your day. Even if you didn’t grow up on these slopes, you’ll feel like you did!

The Interconnect

As always, be sure to check our snow report on the day you are visiting to review what trails and lifts are planned to open.

The Hudson Chair services Little Gore Mountain and connects the Ski Bowl with our three other peaks of terrain. You can score some extra time on the mountain by familiarizing yourself with how the Hudson Chair, Burnt Ridge Mountain, and the North Side are networked.

To the Ski Bowl: From Burnt Ridge Mountain, take the Backwoods trail for the most convenient and direct route to the Roaring Brook Bridge. From the base of the North Quad, take the Pipeline Traverse to Roaring Brook Bridge (check out a shortcut via the “Peace Pipe” trail), to access Little Gore Mountain and the Ski Bowl.

From the Ski Bowl: To access the rest of Gore’s trails, from the top of the Hudson Chair head down Peaceful Valley trail to the Eagle’s Nest Bridge on the skier’s right, cross, and continue down Eagle’s Nest trail to the base of the Burnt Ridge Quad.
