Hello to all,
The folks at Gore mountain contacted me to inform me(Raul and Cathi DeLeon) that the mountain is now going to accept mid -week groups . I would like to put together an FSM group during February. We will need to have at least 15 people in order to receive the rate. At this time, I want to get an idea of how many people would want to go and a date that is viable for all. The cost of each ticket would be $55.00. Please get back to me asap as I will work on a group consensus. Please see below as I have forwarded the original message as well as an attachment that should answer any and all questions as it pertains to new procedures and safety concerns. In addition, we can also make plans with the Holiday Inn for those who like stay in Lake George the night before.
Thank you so much for your patience and interest in visiting Gore this season. We understand that group discounts are often what allows us to introduce new skiers and riders to the sport that may not have had the opportunity to do so otherwise. Therefore, we will be moving forward with Group Ticket Sales for mid-week, non-holiday dates on a limited basis. Weekend and holiday trips will need to be processed on an individual basis through our e-store as availability is extremely limited due to capacity restraints.
In order to qualify for discounted group ticket rates, all reservations must be made for 15 to 50 same-day tickets, and all tickets must be picked up from the Guest Services desk. Also, each ticket must be associated with an individual guest for contact tracing purposes. At this time, only group reservations from contiguous states are being accepted.
In order to create a fluid group sales process compliant with health and safety guidelines, a few changes have been made since last year. Some key details include no bus arrivals, a comprehensive health and safety plan and a health screening of each guest before arrival. We realize this does place more work on our group leaders and sales office but we are up to the challenge and we are sure you are as well!
Some additional health and safety protocols we ask of all guests include wearing masks or face coverings at all times except when actively skiing or riding or eating and drinking at a table, social distancing wherever possible and spending as little time in our lodges as possible.
Attached you will find both our health and safety protocols and group ticket sales guidelines and requirements in greater detail. Please review this information carefully as you consider Gore as your group’s destination this season. We assure you that it our intention to host you and your party this season and we still guarantee a winter adventure, packed with groomed trails, tons of snow, and the small-town-big-mountain charm we’re known for!
Raul and Cathi DeLeon
