Our scenic gondola ride and summer activities season has ended- thank you for joining us for a wonderful Harvest Fest!  We are preparing for the opening of our winter season- look for snowmaking starting up during November, and Opening Day quickly following the guns turning on!  In the meantime, mark your calendar for our season pass and multi-week Snow Sports program deadline on November 17. 

 

Special Notes

We are excited for extensive renovations to three of our lodges!  The size of the Saddle Lodge has doubled and we are adding more dining options there, the original 1967 gondola unloading station at Gore's summit has been transformed into the new Straight Brook Lodge, and we're expanding the rental shop, children's program center, and restrooms of the Northwoods Lodge.  Planning your winter vacation?  Check out e-ticket savings, our long list of lodging partners, and fantastic value with our ski and stay packages!

Snowmaking starts soon-be ready for winter!  Our SKI3 Snow Samplers are just $259- grab your 4-pack of unrestricted, transferable tickets by 12/8/17!

Mountain Bike Skills Development Camp

Enjoy the thrills and excitement of biking down and around the mountain, through wooded trails, over rocks, logs and stream beds.  Learn to ride with more control, climb more efficiently, and descend with more confidence.  Our skills development clinics offer cross-country and downhill mountain biking instruction for beginner and intermediate riders, ages 10 & up.

Join us for the all-day clinic- gondola access is included with an option for lunch to be provided.  Or choose the half-day clinic and join us for the morning session, 9am-12:30pm.  You'll work on

  • riding through a slalom course
  • riding over rocks, roots, and logs
  • putting your bike into a controlled skid
  • effective braking
  • positioning, balance, and techniques for climbing and riding downhill, as well as cornering and making tight turns

What to bring and wear...

  • Mountain bike:  In good repair, preferably with full suspension.  Front fork suspension is required, and 'hard-tail' (no rear suspension) is acceptable.
  • Helmet!  Everyone must wear a helmet.  Make sure your helmet fits properly, and the chinstrap is snug.
  • Bring plenty of Water stored in a bottle or hydration pack.  You may want to bring Snacks with you for breaks on the mountain.
  • Clothing:  Mountain bike shorts preferred.  Avoid loose pants that may get caught in bike chain.  T-shirt or long sleeved shirt, pending weather.  Light jacket may be needed pending temperatures.  You'll get warm quickly when riding the trails!
  • Footwear:  Biking shoes or supportive trail shoes or sneakers with good tread are recommended.
  • Biking gloves are recommended- padding or gel in key areas of the palm make gripping the handlebars more comfortable and reduce risk of blisters.
