Not too crowded
Conditions were very firm and very icy in spots
Monday was the better day with 1-5 inches of soft snow on top. Tuesday the wind whipped off whatever was left of that and the groomers left things pretty hard almost everywhere and icy in spots.
Not a knock on Gore, but the result of rain right after Christmas this year.
Everyone was friendly. When kids dropped gloves in the lodge, someone was quick to point it out, people were extremely courteous in the lodge and at the lifts. More advanced skiers routinely yielded to intermediates. The staff was out on the mountain to monitor the tougher terrain. Instructors were great as expected.
It felt very cold near the top of the triple lift for sure. Just be careful on the way down.
