    Gore's glades are terrific, whether on Burnt Ridge or up in Straight Brook/High Peaks. They say Cirque is the longest glade in the east & I believe them. Haven't gotten over to Little Gore but plan to next month.
    The densest glades would be the very top of Chatiemac Glades, but then they open up beautifully just below that- which fortunately you can access off of Chatiemac.
    Nice trip report

    To be honest they are two of the only major north east I haven't hit this year so I'm willing to make the trip for something fresh thats worth it.

    Coming from New England, it's worth pairing a WF/Gore trip with a couple days in Lake Placid. One of my favorite towns on Earth.

    Coming from NY, what's to draw you to NH/Maine? North Conway? Lol

    Gore for woods and more accessible short steep trails. Whiteface for ripping steep groomers. I haven't skied the Slides but either way Whiteface is a more challenging mountain and Gore is more "fun every where you go".

    I first skied Gore last year and still intend to get my wife out there this year in the next few weeks. The woods on Burnt Mountain combined with variety of terrain set it apart from the majority of Northeast mountains.

    Whiteface is fun and skis big but don't show up there with dull edges.

    Lake George. There is not much up by Gore. Plus places to eat are far and few between near Gore.

    yea, i'm planning on WF/Gore this weekend and hoping WF reopens the slides. i have a room reserved at lake george, and another in glens falls. really depends if my buddy joins me, as the glen falls one is substantially cheaper. but yes, lake george is the hotel zone for gore. 30-40 min drive or so.

    According to another ski forum looks like Whiteface is not opening the slides because lack of paterols
    Been reading that on Harvey fourm ski conditions for Whiteface thread

    There's a place in North Creek called the Alpine Lodge. Clean, renovated rooms and reasonably priced. I was surprised at how nice it was. Walking distance to a supermarket and a great restaurant called barVino. Five minutes to the mountain. Other than that not too much else in North Creek. Good luck, Gore is awesome.
