Saratoga and North Creek Railway

For the first time since World War II, passenger rail service returns between Saratoga Springs and North Creek New York at the base of Gore Mountain.  The full service rail system will provide round trip transportation thru March 31st including many benefits for skiers to take the train such as discounted lift tickets and more. 

Departing from Saratoga Springs each Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning at  7am, the Gore Mountain Snow Train arrives in North Creek at 9:15 a.m. Return service leaves North Creek at 4:30 p.m. and arrives in Saratoga Springs at 6:45 p.m. Shuttle transportation is then provided to Gore Mountain for all arrivals and departures.

The launch of the Gore Mountain Snow Train is a significant historical milestone for Upstate New York, restoring passenger rail service to North Creek will allow a new generation of winter sports fans to experience the luxury and comfort of train travel that was celebrated in decades past.
