Inscription.  Step inside this historic Gore Mountain Gondola Cabin for a photo. Did you visit Gore Mountain between January 1969 and April 1999 when it was home to the only gondola in New York State? The “Old Red Gondola” created over 30 years of fond memories, was the setting for numerous marriage proposals, and of course provided thousands of happy ski days at Gore! The gondola showcased spectacular Adirondack views that spanned over 100 miles. Check out these fun facts:
• Built in 1968
• 11,118’ Long
• 2,100 Vertical Rise
• 110 Four-Passenger Cabins
• Suspended by 24 Towers. From 40’-120’ tall (imagine working on the 120’ tower?)
• Traveled 680’ feet per minute
• Transported 800 people per hour
• 34 Minutes Round Trip

Although this gondola retired, visit Gore Mountain for a ride on the Northwoods Gondola (shown at right) – offering beautiful views from Bear Mountain, one of Gore’s three unique peaks!
