New York Ski Operators See Good Season Ahead, Despite Pandemic

Gore Gore Mountain does site work in preparing for its replacement of the antiquated Sunway Chair. The lift, previously a two-person chair, is being updated to a quad with a conveyor-style loading area that is helpful for children and beginners.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic raises questions about the upcoming ski season, Gore Mountain in Johnsburg is replacing two lifts to improve access to beginner and expert terrain.

The 1967 High Peaks double chair to the summit is being replaced with a new quad lift, and the beginner access Sunway double chair, dating back to 1986, is becoming a quad. The cost of the replacements is about $9 million, said James “Bone” Bayse, Gore Mountain’s general manager.

Gore also is spending about $1.5 million to increase the size of its reservoir for added snowmaking capacity, part of a continued effort to improve and reduce the cost of snowmaking.

“Both lifts had a lot of good years to them, but were pretty out of date,” Bayse said.
