      I would doubt that there will be anymore cc ski trails,unless they can route them around trees.It’s my understanding that trees can’t be cut for snowmobile trails, so I would not think it would be ok for ski trails of any kind either

        Way off Robert. ORDA has special usage of state land. It isn’t forever wild or preserve.
        They can cut anything they want to create trails.

    That’s great for North Creek. But what about other towns/hamlets that are more remote and are hemmed in by the Forest Preserve? The state needs to figure out how to help them and the environmental groups need to be more flexible instead of blocking everything and constantly suing the state. More cross country ski trails, mountain bike trails, better routing of snowmobile trails to allow access in/out of town, etc.

    Sure, spend $32 million on a new lodge (revenue generation) and make the citizen wait 20 years with no answers on their salt contaminated wells, as explained in the very next article. Next in the works is the proposed Buffalo Bill football stadium and the citizen is still waiting with the contaminated wells. Some way to spend infrastructure money.

    Love the design “Early LaGuardia Airport Terminal”. Why can’t the local citizens and government be involved with ANY of this? Ski Bowl – the red headed step child of Gore – they don’t make snow there for skiing and riding ’till February – missing Nov, Dec, and January! XC starts early and we love that.

    What a joke this town sucks! Driving locals out for the ski-tards, and an allready existing infrastructure! Lol!! This towns water and sewage is crumbling just like it’s roads! Raised the local taxes 100% plus, screwing people that are on fixed income! Just for a pipe dream for a few uptown jerks ! What a joke hope they go bankrupt!

      Yeah, it looks similar to the replacement mid-lodge at Whiteface, a not so fitting design for the setting. These out-there architects think if they throw a few pieces of natural wood in to the design, it’s magically Adirondack architecture.

    This project is too big for this area. Where are people going to park? Putting zip lines in the state owned portion of Gore would not result in any increase in density. Seems like a way for the state to take over the Town Park. This project should be scaled back.
