region. Gore Mountain will be hosting several events for the duration of the games and will remain open to the public for skiers to watch the athletes and ski the trails.

Over 400 volunteers will be needed for this 11-day tournament at Gore Mountain. Volunteer benefits include an official Games’ uniform, cozy swag, shift meals, discounts, and access to events. Register to volunteer

Gore Mountain Open to Public during Games

During the Lake Placid 2023 FISU Winter World University Games, Gore Mountain is open! Training and competition will take place January 12-22 and the event window is January 2nd - 24th for setting up and dismantling the supporting infrastructure.

At Gore Mountain, lift ticket-holders can witness top athletes from around the world competing in games including Ski Cross, Big Air, and Slopestyle. Due to the high-profile nature of the Games, temporary changes to capacity, parking, trails, lifts, lodges, and activities can be expected
during these events.

For those who wish to be spectators without a lift ticket, tickets are available starting at $15 per event, and can be purchased online by visiting:

PARKING - From Monday, January 9 – Sunday, January 22, the Premier Parking Lot will be closed to the public, including parking season passholders; paid parking will not be available for purchase. Shuttles will offer convenient access to the Base Lodge.

TRAILS - Wild Air, The Arena, and Pot Luck, will be open for competition only. Jibland will not be open during the World University Games. The Gore team is planning to build a temporary park on Upper Sleighride for public use during the Games.
