The the colder temps are staying with us tonight- snowmakers and groomers are on the move with efforts to turn the terrain around as quickly as possible!   Be aware of areas of thin cover and bare spots, keep your speed low, and as always, have fun while skiing with care.  Some areas/trails may open later in the day.  Our Women Only Ski and Snowboard Clinics are happening this Saturday and Sunday- clinics include tickets, meals, instruction, and celebration, and we encourage ladies of all ability levels to take advantage of this value-packed deal.  For a limited time, we are excited to be distributing our Ski Bowl Illustration poster- it's free for passholders and $10 for everyone else!  Check out the details.

Special Notes

Snowmakers are on the job, with efforts focused on the top of Bear Mountain, throughout Sunway, Foxlair, Bear Cub Run, and the Ski Bowl.  Friday's Food Court Lunch Special is a tasty Tuna Melt Panini for $9.  Or, take a break mid-mountain in the beautiful Saddle Lodge which serves food- including their delicious pulled pork or chicken tacos and cold or warm beverages.  While there, take in the stunning views of the Adirondacks!  Safety Tip: If you are merging onto a trail, be sure to look uphill and yield to others.  Please note, Echo and Crystal will be open for racing only today.

Carl Heilman II Photo Workshop

Carl Heilman II Photography Camp

MAXIMUM 15 PEOPLE - Please contact Carl to reserve your spot, this class will sell out!

Gore's seventh annual photography camp with Carl Heilman.  Learn how to shoot various nature photography from the best in the business, with Gore as the backdrop.  Explore fall foliage techniques, landscapes, wildflower photos, moving water, and more.  Includes lunch, scenic gondola ride, and instruction.

Our Comprehensive Gore Mountain Photo Workshop for beginner to intermediate photographers features instruction on many facets of photography including - camera basics, photography principles, digital camera features and menus, lenses, RAW files, exposure, HDR, depth of field, motion, composition, lighting.  The class begins with and builds on the most basic camera principles to help a person gain complete control over every shot they take.  The key to taking better photos is knowing how to take the shot you want, rather than wondering how you managed to get a nice photo!

Enjoy some great opportunities for photographing mountain landscapes and wildflowers, as well as streams and cascades.  While the class is geared toward DSLRs with interchangeable lenses, many of the techniques can be applied to full featured point and shoot cameras as well.  Just bring along your photo gear and enthusiasm for extending your photographic possibilities and experimenting with new photo techniques.  The 8 hour day features about 4-5 hours of instruction using a detailed PowerPoint, including time for working with the cameras and Q & A - plus a gondola ride and time to experiment with the camera techniques and photography principles in the field.

Visit Carl's website or find him on facebook to learn more about him and his photography.
