Gore Mountain has announced new bus service from New York City and Ridgewood, N.J. The mountains has partnered with Adirondack Trailways to offer packages that combine ski lift tickets with round-trip transportation to North Creek.

"For the first time, skiers and riders in New York City can purchase Gore Mountain lift tickets along with convenient bus service to North Creek.  Two-day lift tickets packaged with transportation is priced under $200," said Emily Stanton, Gore Mountain marketing manager. 

Bus service can be purchased with a one-day adult lift ticket for $154, with a two-day lift ticket for $196, and with a three-day lift ticket for $232. The service is offered Friday through Sunday to Gore, Saturday through Monday on return, except during Presidents' Week, when service is offered daily.

Lodging is not included, but may be arranged with area properties that provide shuttle service to Gore. These include The Copperfield Inn, the Alpine Lodge, or the Summit at Gore Mountain in North Creek.

Regular shuttle service is available between Main Street North Creek, the Ski Bowl, and the Gore Mountain Base Area.  The North Creek Business Alliance coordinated the new shuttle service, which is available 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every Saturday, Sunday, and holiday period day through March 15.  

When snow cover allows, Gore Mountain will open its Pipeline Trail that connects Gore Mountain to the North Creek Ski Bowl, where guests have shuttle transportation back to the Gore Base Area.
