Full review

I skiied Gore on Sun Jan 4. Conditions wer ok by eastern standards. They hadn't had much new snow but did a GREAT job grooming. One big problem - the North Quad and High Peaks Chairs were closed and all the terrain they serve were roped off. and there was no electrical power at the Saddle Lodge. I'm guessing these are related problems . Some people back home said they had heard about this problem - so it wasn't just the day I was there and at this writing the mountains web site shows these areas still closed. So it may be a long term problem. I couldn't find any news.

This is a big chunk of their intermediate terrain. Fortunately it wasn't very crowded the day I was there or this would be a big loss.

Check the mountains web site before you go to see if this is open again.
