Had an overall good experience at Gore.

I LIKED; the amount of terrain and the views. Granted they haven't had much natural snow fall this winter, but their snowmaking is very good. Unfortunately it's icy underneath.

I DISLIKED; standing on line outside for an hour to buy a lift ticket. Completely unacceptable. Every trail was icy to a certain degree and the chair lift exit ramps were unreasonably steep. I saw more than a few people crash to the snow because of this. The mountain was also very crowded. Most of the parking lots are far from the base lodge too, but bus service is available.

VERDICT; Would go back, but only after a big snowfall on a non-holiday.
