Gore Mountain circa 1986
I recently unearthed these photos that I took at Gore in the mid-1980s, an era before snowboards, helmets and mammoth snowmaking operations. If you skied at Gore then, you will certainly remember the Old Red Gondola, featured in many of the images here. The pictures were all taken with a Pentax 35mm SLR using 100-speed print film. I scanned the prints to create the digital images. The photo above and the two below are from March, 1986.
The photos below are all from January, 1987. Since it was early in the season, it appears Chatiemac and Hawkeye weren't open yet. In fact, I'm not sure those trails had snowmaking at that time. Perhaps someone who knows can chime in.
