If you agree with me please write to Gore and let them know. Gore skiers unite!
The wife and I quit season passes at Gore/WF this year. Too many seasons of: poor snowmaking, closed lifts/terrain during the week, surley employees, etc. Had enough. Last year Gore upped their prices to near Vermont prices and don't offer near what you get at a real ski resort.
Today, Gore has 30 trails, (that includes things like the driveway-length connectors); Okemo has 82 Trails and Stratton has 72. My pass to Okemo/Stratton cost ~$200 more. IMHO, way better value! I'm tired of feeling like a second-class citizen the the New York State "bargain" ski areas. Used to be the State areas were priced significantly lower than those in VT and were indeed a good alternative. Not any more!!
Sure, Gore/WF has awesome terrain, (when it's open), but I'd rather ski on reliable conditions and not have to ski on my rock skis as often.
