Gore Mountain has opened the Interconnect with North Creek Ski Bowl via the Hudson Chair.

The official opening came at the end of January, with a ribbon cutting, but the benefits of the new chair will extend for years to come.

The North Creek Ski Bowl Lodge was recently renovated as part of the master plan to connect the two areas and revitalize the trail system.

Redeveloped terrain on Little Gore Mountain now offers trails for all ability levels and full snowmaking coverage.

Eagle's Nest leads from Little Gore's summit to the base of Burnt Ridge Mountain, and provides access to the rest of Gore Mountain's vast multi-peak trail system.

The new trails follow the profile of the same terrain North Creek's earliest skiers traveled, and the lift line of the Hudson Chair was once home to the 1946 t-bar at the Ski Bowl. The expert 46ER trail there was named in tribute to the Bowl's rich ski history, and runs such as The Oak Ridge Trail and Half-n-Half maintain their same names and routes as well.

Gore Mountain bills itself as a premier family ski resort in upstate New York, nestled in the Adirondack Mountains, with more skiable acres than any other mountain in the state, and with 2,537 feet of vertical, plenty of cruisers, steeps and glades for any level of skier or rider.
