Gore photo of the day

If there was a year to install 160 new tower guns and increase the power of our fans, this is the one!

Thats honesty...!

Is that clever photpgraphy or are those things much larger than any fan gun I've ever seen before?

Yes, other photos in the gallery show Polecats as you are used to seeing. That webside has some good pictures. One of the best photo archives I ever remember.

Having skied there Saturday for the first time, I would have to agree. They had a lot open and conditions were great considering the lack of natural snow. They even had the Village Chair and the half pipe open at the Snow Bowl. Everyone we met from the lift operators, to the ticket sellers, to the waitresses, to the other skiers were extremely pleasant. (OK there was one snowboarder who pulled a complete jackass move, but we didn't let it ruin our day) All in all a great day!

Those are the only type of snowboarding moves that Gore allows!

Glad you had fun. It is a great place.

If you check out this year's Photo Archives on Gore's website, you will see a LOT of snowmaking...more than I ever recall before.

Of course, the main reason is to show flatlanders that the mountain has good coverage during this poor winter so far.

But the other reason is to show the ski world that Gore is finally a serious "player."

For 10 years (pre 1976) Gore had NO snowmaking at all, during some horribly warm and wet winters, like this one.

Even during the 1980's and 1990's Gore's snowmaking was far below par for the Northeast and kept skiers away. There was no water until they tapped into the Hudson, and after that there wasn't enough air to turn all that water to snow.

Finally, it's all coming together, where Gore is now competing with Mt Snow and Stratton when it comes to putting down what Mother Nature has failed to do.

I'ts Gore's way of saying "watch out, Southern Vermont, We've Arrived."

Amen.

The presence and quality of snow making at Gore have increased remarkably since I first started skiing there in the mid 90s. Especially this year.

Bravo!

Perhaps, "Re-Arrived". I think they attempted to say they arrived when they put the gondola in ca. 1970!

There is no question that the high addition of the HKDs and Ratniks at Gore has made a huge difference. And the addition of these guns was not a simple matter, in this environment. It was quite a job to make this happen.

I think in a "normal" year - if we ever get one - the difference will be even more dramatic and noticeable to the average (non-hardcore) skier. Last year, with average snowfall and awesome sustained cold the full mountain was open by +/- January 26. Will be very cool to watch this investment continue to pay dividends in the future.
