Overview

Join us for Scenic Skyrides in 2022!

Open 10am-4pm
Thursday-Sunday, June 30-September 4
Saturday-Sunday, September 10-October 9

Our Northwoods Gondola 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 one of our scavenger hunt game cards or participate in a new hiking challenge. 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!

Interpretive Activities

Join us for adventure activities in 2022!

Open 10am-4pm
Thursday-Sunday, June 30-September 4
Saturday-Sunday, September 10-October 9

Check out our independent interpretive hikes– the Hardwood Forest Loop is located in the Base Area and the Alpine Sky Loop is at the top of Bear Mountain near where the gondola skyride unloads.

Enjoy a relaxing stroll through our Mountaintop Labyrinth, located below the Fairview Observation Deck on the Alpine Sky Loop interpretive trail. Labyrinths are ancient patterns over 4,000 years old, and walking them has been known to help quiet the mind and offer relaxation, balance, and well-being.

Add even more fun to your adventures with our new hiking challenges!
