One of the best skiing nooks in all of the Northeast is getting a new ski run this season. Gore Mountain announced earlier in the year that the area known as Burnt Ridge at Gore Mountain would be blazing a new intermediate run down some of the best tree skiing in the Empire State. Gore had opened it up to the public to pick the name, and now we have the winner.
Unofficial Networks’ own Francis Xavier carving mellow turns down Barkeater Glades right next to the new ski run.
The new run on the backside of Burnt Ridge will be known as….”The Backwoods.” Okay no bombshell there, but it’s a fitting name for a run that shares a slope with some of the best glade runs you will find anywhere in the Northeast.
“This 60’ wide intermediate-rated trail with grooming and snowmaking capabilities will enter near the top of the Burnt Ridge Quad and run alongside the Barkeater Glades, ending just uphill of the Roaring Brook Bridge at the bottom of The Pipeline, making your adventure to Little Gore Mountain and the Ski Bowl more direct and easily accessible!”
Seriously, if you have not skied Gore, you are missing out.
