“Gore Mountain is a fantastic venue with dedicated race trails for both Alpine and Nordic,” said Bob Underwood, Nordic State Coordinator. “With scoreboards, live results, and announcing of all the racers, this will be a great show.”

Megan Bates, Section 2 Alpine Ski Coordinator, adds: “We are so excited to be hosting the NYSPHSAA Skiing State Championships again for the first time since 2019.  Gore Mountain has been both a great Alpine and Nordic venue in the past and we are excited to support all of our racers and coaches during the event.”
