Re: Gore Conditions

We closed Gore on Sunday.  The morning was beautiful, large clouds quickly moving through a blue sky, warm and friendly.  The only lift running was the AEII and there were very few folks skiing.  It had rained the night before and whatever was left of the mountain took a beating.  Looking up to the summit we could see what appeared to be solid coverage on Rumor and Lies, it was a shame that so much snow was unaccessible.

The only trails officially open were Sunway to Quicksilver and the Arena.  Sunway was accessed via the lead into Twister because cover on the Saddle was nearly nonexistent.  It was obvious the groomers did the best they could to maintain a line to the bottom and in some areas even that began to deteriorate after our second run down.

On our third and final run, we decided to jump the rope into Showcase which despite one small section with no snow skied surprisingly good, so good that we all agreed it was worth the rope jump to end the year on a highlight.

We were all very thankful to the staff at Gore for keeping the mountain open until Easter Sunday.  They could have easily pulled the plug and shut down.  We were in Vermont all week skiing Jay, which had tremendous coverage with 100% of the mountain still open but we really wanted to end our season where it all began.

Its always a bittersweet moment in the Spring when the season comes to an end.   Skiing galvanizes our family relationships.  I can't explain the power it has, but it is an amazing thing.  With my daughter in college, we now leverage her breaks to get back on the mountain as a team again and the memories and love of the sport reinforce who we are and all the great moments in time that we've shared on the mountain, our time together at our ski camp is special and I know it enriches our lives.

So with this entry I bid this forum goodbye for a now.  Or at least until the ghosts of winter wake me on a hot summer night, and I start my countdown to the 2017 - 2018 season.

Re: Gore Conditions

Can anyone report measurable snow in North Creek overnight?

Gore has a New General Manager

NORTH CREEK, N.Y. --- The New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) announced today, Tuesday, June 27, that it has hired James Bayse as Gore Mountain’s general manager. Bayse replaces Mike Pratt, who after 21 years as the North Creek ski resort’s general manager was named the Authority’s president/CEO in March 2017.

“We’re excited to have James join the ORDA and Gore team,” said Pratt. “James has extensive experience in the ski and outdoor industry and is versed in the tourism industry and both public and government relations.”

Bayse brings almost 31 years of ski industry experience to Gore. From 1986 to 2000, he served as a member of the New York Ski Educational Foundation’s (NYSEF) coaching and event crew before becoming NYSEF’s program director where he helped grow the program from 60 to 165 athletes and 30 staff. He also played an instrumental role in Gore Mountain hosting major alpine ski events on its FIS homologated Echo Trail and USSA homologated Twister Trail.

“I am very excited and honored to become the next general manager of Gore Mountain, and look forward to becoming part of an already great team at this successful venue,” noted Bayse.

This summer, Bayse will oversee a number of capital improvement projects for the resort. They include doubling the size of Saddle Lodge, located at the top of the high-speed and recently installed Adirondack Express II, and re-designing the Northwoods Lodge, giving it extra room for the rental and repair shop and added space for children’s Mountain Adventure programs, foodservice for the Snow Sports School, and improve the arrival and registration process.  

Bayse lives in Olmstedville, N.Y. with his wife is Autumn Goerner and two daughters, Avery (12), and Sage (8).

Re: Gore Conditions

Bone will be a great GM!

PS Probably didn't hurt his chances, in that he was King Cuomo's personal Whitewater rafting guide during the ADK Challenges the past few summers
Ski More at Old Gore!
