NY ski museum idea considered in Warren County
NORTH CREEK — A retired Adirondack physician is proposing the creation of a New York state museum of skiing in the Warren County hamlet of North Creek, home of Gore Mountain and the Ski Bowl.
The Glens Falls Post-Star reports that state Sen. Betty Little revealed the venture Friday during the Warren County Board of Supervisors meeting.
Little said she was approached by Dr. Dan O'Keeffe, a historian and author who says Gore Mountain had the first ski trails, ski patrol and ski train in the state. The 92-year-old Glens Falls resident says he's the only surviving member of that first ski patrol and he saw the first snow train come in.
A group of business and government leaders plans to meet Jan. 6 to discuss the idea.
