With one of the craziest winters on record – and summer like weather for the last few days – Gore Mountain is officially closing today after the last run.
Just 34 per cent of the mountain is open, with 4 lifts including the Northwood Gondola, and 22 trials. With large sections of grass and rocks exposed, and walking required on many trails, the resort’s operators had little choice but to pack it in. No new snow has been made since the end of February, and what's left has been melting rapidly leaving a muddy mess.
At around 10.45 am today a skier told us there were about 5 people in the lodge and not a soul linning up for the Gondola.
Lift tickets are heavily discounted today and sons under 19 ski free with a paying adult. There are deals galore for early birds who want to buy seasons passes for next season, which come with unlimited scenic rides on the Gondola for the rest of this Spring and Summer.
From The folks at Gore:
Hi Everyone- Unfortunately the snow is disappearing much faster than we can move it, and we are disappointed to report that today has to be our last day. We want to say thank you to everyone for all the nice words you've passed along to our snowmakers and groomers- it means alot during such a challenging season! We're going to start work on the new Tannery deck very soon and announce our spring, summer, and fall schedule shortly. Thanks so much for being such a great friend of Gore this winter!
