After a terrific Opening Weekend, we look forward to welcoming you back for the start of our daily operations on Friday, November 24!  Both downhill and cross-country skiing terrain will be open.  Until then, have a fun and safe Thanksgiving and know our snowmakers are working around the clock as weather allows to bring you more trails for Friday.  Guns are going on beginner terrain, Foxlair, Wild Air, Ruby Run, and Nordic loops at the North Creek Ski Bowl.  Give the gift of Gore this holiday season- we have gift cards available in any denomination that never expire, 4-packs of transferable tickets for easy giving, and frequent skier cards for every member of the family.

Special Notes

Early Season Schedule: CLOSED Monday-Thursday, 11/20-24.  OPEN DAILY FOR THE SEASON: 11/24/17. 

We are excited about extensive renovations to three of our lodges!  The size of the Saddle Lodge has doubled and more dining will be available there this winter.  Meanwhile, the original 1967 gondola unloading station at Gore's summit has been transformed into the new Straight Brook Lodge- it's beautiful.  We're also expanding the rental shop, children's program center, and restrooms of the Northwoods Lodge. 

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.
