The Interconnect

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: Try our new trail, The Backwoods, from near the top of Sagamore on Burnt Ridge Mountain, or take the Pipeline Traverse from the base of the North Quad (check out a shortcut via the “Peace Pipe” trail) to access terrain on Little Gore Mountain.

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

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.
