Snow & cold weather attract skiers to Gore Mtn.

— This Sunday begins the fourth week of operation for the 2013-14 season. The Nov. 16 opening of Gore was the earliest opening of the full-service ski resort since 1986.

Gore is featuring a promotion that now only is building up a crowd, but is helping local people in need: For each item of canned food brought to the ski center, a $10 discount on a lift ticket will be given — there’s a $20 maximum discount. The food is donated to the food pantry at Johnsburg’s Outreach Center, which provides various services to the community all year long. Check Gore’s website for details.

Pratt extended a welcome to people to come up to Gore and join the fun.

“Skiing conditions are great, and in addition to the snow that’s fallen, we’re making snow like crazy,” he said. “We’ve go a nice crowd, every trail that’s open is in great shape, and we’re expanding terrain as fast as we can.”
