Gore Mountain 12/29/12

Date(s) Skied: 12/29/12

Resort or Ski Area: Gore Mountain

Conditions: Powder/Packed Powder

Trip Report:
I think Gore is my new go-to holiday week place. Every parking lot was full, cars were parked along the entire access road, etc. On the hill? No lines, not too crowded, and Burnt Ridge/Little Gore were nearly deserted.

Sagamore on Burnt Ridge was the hands down ROTD for me. Thin cover in a few spots, but a perfect mix of powder, fun bump lines, no one there, and great terrain features made it my best run. 46ER was good but could use a little more base for my taste, nearly open waterbars.

Skied all over, Northside, High Peaks, main hill, etc. Looking forward to another awesome day there tomorrow, been snowing non-stop, picked up at least 5-6" while skiing during the day and it's still coming down.

Conditions were great pretty much everywhere all day. Lots of great snow to be had, glades were open, I think tomorrow they're going to be 99% open.

As for (very minor) complaints: They are completely incompetent at managing traffic getting out of the area. The plowing was also impressively poor. Tour bus and various cars in snowbanks, etc. While I can drive well, many can't. 6" of snow over the course of a day shouldn't result in the mess they had.
