Mountain Master Craft Harvest Fest Live Music

HARVEST FEST THIS SATURDAY & SUNDAY

Get ready for fall fun with us this weekend. The Gore Mountain Harvest Fest is back and admission is free! This year’s fall festival features a slopeside vendor village of 40+ Adirondack artisans and an outstanding lineup of live entertainment including the Amanda Rae Daviner & Seth Warden of Warden and Co., and the popular Dancing Witches. Our four peaks will be illuminated with a colorful autumn showcase, providing prime leaf-peeping opportunities. Vendors and activities are open 10am-4pm on both days. Don’t miss this exciting celebration on the mountain!

Take a scenic skyride and delight in the stunning foliage views of the surrounding mountains and forests. With visitors flocking to the Adirondacks for just that, we will be offering skyrides on both the Northwoods Gondola and the Adirondack Express chairlift. This weekend allows for the unique opportunity to take one lift up, and hike to the top of the other lift to ride back down with one round-trip skyride ticket. Enjoy convenient access to higher elevations with the Fairview Deck and Mountaintop Labyrinth just a short stroll from the top of the gondola, and about a 15-minute hike from the top of the chairlift.

Explore our 14+ miles of hiking/biking trails from gentle loops to challenging peak-to-peak quests. Hikers have options to start from the base area or the top of either skyride. Grab a trail map and our free hiking games & challenges before you head out. Experienced downhill bikers can get a mountain biking ticket to take their bike up on the Adirondack Express chairlift and pedal down on our thrilling terrain. Challenge your crew to 9 baskets of disc golf for family-friendly fun on our wooded course in the base area forest. Be sure to review our summer safety reminders before you head out on the mountain.

Look for hearty, fall-inspired menus from the Open Pit Grille on the sundeck and indoors at the Base Lodge Food Court. For adult beverage service, a full bar will be available in the Tannery Pub and cold brews served on the sundeck and near the loading area of the gondola skyride.

The shorter days and cooler nights have us thinking of snow. Gear up for the 22/23 season with a 3-Pack of Monday-Friday, non-holiday transferable 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. Pick up your season pass or frequent skier card while you’re here. We look forward to seeing you this weekend!

Hey Gore Mountain Fans, thanks for tuning in. This is Cindy with your More Gore Podcast for Harvest Fest Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 8-9. We are wrapping up our fall season this weekend with the biggest party of the year. In addition to skyrides, hiking, downhill biking, and disc golf, we have a huge array of amazing vendors, live music, a hearty fall menu, and plenty to keep you hydrated. Not all the bells and whistles of our traditional Harvest Fest, but still the best way to celebrate the end of another warm-weather season in the Adirondacks. Skyrides, vendors, and activities are open from 10am-4pm. Take a ride up the mountain for the most scenic foliage views. We are offering gondola and chairlift skyrides which gives you the unique opportunity to take one ride up and hike about 15 minutes to the top of the other lift for your ride back down, all on one ticket. Bring along one of our scavenger hunt game cards or participate in a fun & free hiking challenge. The last ride up on either lift is at 3:45pm. Slopeside shopping will feature over 40 talented artisans spread across the base area. Browse handcrafted items such as original paintings and photography, rustic furniture, unique handmade jewelry, ceramics and pottery, all-natural bath & beauty essentials, primitives, Adirondack decor, NY-made wines and spirits, specialty food items, and more. Look for hearty fall menus from the Open Pit Grille on the sundeck and indoors at the Base Lodge Food Court. For adult beverage service, a full bar will be available in the Tannery Pub and cold brews served on the sundeck and near the loading area of the gondola skyride. Enjoy live music from Seth Warden of Warden and Co. and Amanda Rae Daviner. Saturday features two opportunities to see the festive performance from the extremely popular Dancing Witches. Get ready for winter with a festival-exclusive 3-Pack of Midweek Non-Holiday Lift Tickets for $179.
