Gore Mt. Ski Center getting new $6M lift

JOHNSBURG (AP) – A state-owned ski center in the Adirondacks plans to replace its 30-year-old triple lift with a high-speed quad lift costing more than $6 million.

Management at Gore Mountain Ski Center in Johnsburg in Warren County tells The Post-Star of Glens Falls that the Adirondack Express lift will be replaced this summer. It’s the oldest high-speed triple lift in North America.

The new system will be a high-speed detachable quad lift with a capacity of 2,400 people per hour. That’s 300 more than the current lift. Ski center officials say the current lift had become too difficult to maintain.

Gore is operated by the New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority.

The authority also runs the ski areas at Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid and Belleayre Mountain in the Catskills.
