Beautiful soft snow sunshine morning at Gore.
The gondola shut down at 940 with no estimated time to reopen. No activity to start the quad.
In other news, Gigi’s is closed for vacation until December 22.
I'm disappointed Gore didn't prioritize blowing snow on more advanced terrain for the weekend. How many blues and greens do they need in early December when families with small children aren't coming until Xmas anyway?
Those willing to drive 4 hours right now aren't doing so for 3b and Sunway.
Don't be disappointed just lower your expectations and realize you will always be "Gored" when comparing how Gore is operated vs. other mountains.
The mountain and the terrain will always be amazing and in good snow there are few places I would rather be (east coast), but I have come to terms with the fact that it will never be run like the big boys for better or for worse.
And it (Topridge was skiing really good!)....and hey....what about the automated RFID gates at the lifts....a good improvement in my mind....no more wrestling with your pass to get it "Above the waistline".....
Today was a really good day, we picked up about 6" on a prediction of 1-3", and they are blowing in many locations.
Keep in mind these are MY predictions for tomorrow:
Showcase all the way to ADKXII including the 2B connection to the Arena
Sunway all the way
Uncas to Tannery and Lift 7
Cloud, Headwaters and Cloud Runout
Hawkeye ??? Cross your fingers
And I understand some folks having an issue with the lack of terrain suited for better skiers, but it's the first week in December, and everything that is open is in really good shape and the coverage is as well. So think positive and when you see the snowmakers out on the trails, give them a thumbs up and yell out a "Thanks Man"!
