Reviews for Gore Mountain
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
No lines. Empty trails. Great grooming. No frills just ski. Not a great place for first time skiers. Try Whiteface or Bellayre for that. ... Full Review
Just got my season pass suspended today to go under the red rope on the rumor for skiing the fresh powder on the first quart of the trail with my son, the second part the other 3/4 was open... No warning, just a angry ski patrol saying hand me your pass don't come back today or we call the cops. Great approach for a dad and his son...... Full Review
Skiied here first time today. Incredibly icy. Green trails have very steep sections. Not comfortable on them at all, especially as the place was a sheet of ice.... Full Review
I live 15 minutes from West Mountain. West Mountain costs less, has better snow making, no ice, no lines, and similar vertical. Gore's vertical is all fake. The vaunted Rumor is about 400 feet. Much of the elevation at the top of the longest runs tracks down the same icy, crowded, single sharp turn and then you begin a 1,000 foot run similar to a West Mountain run but with more crowds and again ice. The rumored miles of runs require pushing yourself and end at lifts that can leave you in isolated parts of the mountain. Just not worth the drive for me despite an ardent local following. I don't get it. The views are great and sure sometimes they get more snow but like any other Northeast Mountain for much of the year they must rely on their snowmaking and their's is not as good as West. Sure West is small, but its a question of value and for me Gore is not worth the drive. If I want to pay more and be in crowds I'd rather get legit vertical at Stratton and even though that is crazy expensive, at least I'll have gotten something for it.... Full Review
Gore has expanded quite a bit with new lifts and terrain over the years. This mountain is super fun to ski. Trails go in all directions, each trail feels unique. Pretty sick terrain park features, night skiing, Nordic facilities, laid back family vibe. With good snow the glades are super challenging and tight trees. Steep trails, cruisers. Honestly the place is quite amazing. When the mountain is mostly open lift lines are not a big issue. During busy times you might need to avoid the gondola. But there are multiple approaches to the top of the mountain. Giving a 1 star review for this place is absurd, it doesn’t relate to the actual skiing and boarding experience.
The vibe is super laid back. Enjoy your time here!... Full Review
I've been leaving messages with Stephanie from tickets for over a week now.Someone very close to me tested covid positive and when I tried to get my tickets refunded they've just ignored me. They warned me on their website to buy my tickets early or else they wouldn't be available because of limited capacity,(even though there's still tickets available just days before) and now they can't respond to the four voicemails I've left or the message the ticket vendor passed on for me. I have half a mind to go anyway and spread whatever virus I may have. It's that or I'm out $600... Full Review
Been going to Gore for years. They offer a great variety of terrain for all levels of skiers. They do a great job with snowmaking and grooming considering the lack of natural snow the mountain receives. I skied with my kids and continue now with my senior season pass.... Full Review
Gore is a great mountain but I fully agree with the review they have tremendous staffing issues especially in the marketing office.... Full Review
Gore is a great family mountain with all kinds of terrain for all levels and no lines! The grooming is excellent and all the glades are wonderful when mother nature cooperates! The terrain park was loved too! Gore is a hidden treasure! The little town of North Creek is adorable and like stepping back in time with a few great restaurants, coffee shop, bakery, a few great shops, grocery store, hardware store & community center Adorable!...

Terrible customer service. No lifts running until nearly 10. Then only with with a long line. And they still charge fill price and don't give refunds. I get you can't control the weather, but don't charge 94$ for a terrible experience.... Full Review
