Gore Mountain (The Original)
Little Gore
North Creek Beginner T-bar
North Creek, NY
Mid 1930's-Present

Its amazing how much history this small area has. It began in the mid 1930's as a Snow Train destination, with a few rope tows. It then added a Constam T-bar to the summit. At some point in the 1960's it added a beginner T-bar. And finally, in the late 1980's the main T-bar closed, leaving only the beginner one to operate.

We'll have much more on the development of the original Gore Mountain, complete with historical pictures, trail maps, and current pictures. This page focuses on what still operates.

North Creek continues to operate the beginner T-bar on weekends and holidays only. There is no snowmaking, however, Gore Mountain does provide a groomer every once in a while to smooth things out. The slope has a drop of only 200' or so, but is somewhat rolling, and is excellent beginner terrain.

Betsy McDonough, Chris Bradford, and Jeremy checked out this area after skiing Gore on Jan 27, 2001. Here are some photos:

Rick Rosenspire visited this area on April 1, 2002, and took the following shots. Here's his son next to the base of the T-bar, showing a closeup of the bar.
