Gore is a gold mine for skiers in the southern adirondacks. Not as well known as neighboring Vermont mountains and sister mountain, Whiteface, Gore has some of the shortest lift lines imaginable. The two different peaks help to separate skiing ability levels, freeing up lots of trails. If you are looking for some awesome glade skiing, ask a local about some "unmarked" glades.
Although frowned upon, you can usually get away skiing some of the best untouched powder stashes in the east. With good pitch on the upper peak, the marked glades are nicely thinned, and ranked amongst the best in the East according to Skiing Magazine, and you can tell why after a good storm. If you are looking for a good terrain park, this is a little tougher, however they are trying to change this for '07-'08 season. With enough vertical to entertain anyone in the family, and a highly organized ski school, don't be afraid to drop the kids off and go ski what you want for the day.
Only complaint would be that it is tough to find lodging directly near the mountain, and restaurants seemed to be sporadically placed between North Creek and 20 minutes away in Warrensburg.
