Closed until Summer 2023

The information below is from Summer 2022, please check back in spring for updates.

Our scenic skyrides are a great way to spend a half-hour at Gore or the entire day. Enjoy stunning views of the High Peaks and Southern Adirondacks, and take the time to hike or picnic. Aboard 8-passenger gondola cabins* you can easily fit mountain bikes, strollers, wheelchairs, and walkers – this skyride is also ideal for small children or those timid of heights.

Take along a scavenger hunt game card or participate in any of our fun hiking challenges. Excellent photo opportunities- have fun! Please note there is no food service at the top of either skyride, and restrooms are located in the Saddle Lodge near the top of the chairlift (.4 mile hike from the top of the gondola).

The last ride up is at 4pm. This schedule is subject to change based on weather and other variables.

*Please note that the Northwoods Gondola may be substituted with the Adirondack Express open-air chairlift on days when the summer heat index makes it unsafe to ride in enclosed gondola cabins. Chairlift riders must be able to approach the loading area unassisted and sit upright in their own seat. Please check our Activities Report for up-to-date information. Review our complete scenic skyride policy.

2022/23 season passes include free scenic skyrides during summer/fall 2022 – show your pass at the lift (Monday-Friday Limited passholders must redeem for Saturday/Sunday skyrides at the ticket windows). Check out year-round perks for passholders!
