Visited Gore Mountain for the first time.. Conditions were GOOD on blue and green. There was some ice on the trails but it wasn't too bad.. EXCEPT... for the middle landing area for the Adirondack Express lift! There was sheets of gnarly ice there and of course on my last run I slipped and fell right on my tailbone! (A guy on a snowmobile was right there when it happened and he didn't even stop.) I couldn't even understand why that area was still open since it was so bad! The next day, instead of going to Whiteface because of what I heard about their ice problems, I went to Okemo, VT. Conditions there were EXCELLENT with no ice on blue and green except for the bottom where are the lifts are. It was bitter cold though so the snow was rock hard. That place must be amazing when the temp is 20-30!! $82 was steep though for a weekday.
