It's a Why Not Wednesday, so be sure to bring an unopened Coca-Cola product to exchange for a $48 lift ticket!  The forecast calls for you starting your day on a nice helping of new natural snow, and groomers are quickly turning last weekend's challenging weather into beautiful fresh corduroy!  Snowmakers are busiest on Foxlair, Fairview (opening soon!), Sunway, and 3b.  Saturday starts our favorite family promotion- Take Your Kids to Gore Week, where children 19 and under ski or ride free with a full-paying parent! 

Special Notes

Our Tuesday night Citizens Race Series starts tonight at the Ski Bowl.  This fun and friendly race series awards based on participation, not best times.  Register 6-6:20pm, racing begins at 6:30!  After the competition, grab a snack at the food truck and hang out for some live music by The Blonde Roots!

Wednesday's Food Court Lunch Special is a Triple Salad Platter for $8.  Please note that Echo is open for racing only today- join us in welcoming some of the Northeast's fastest female athletes to the Women's Eastern Cup FIS Super G.  Safety Reminder: People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.  We're here to help if you need it.  Keep your snow day going-  our Nordic trail system at the North Creek Ski Bowl is open daily, today's hours are 11am-8pm.

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.
