Tuesday should be a banner Gore Mountain day- with crystal clear skies, some of our best-dressed conditions left behind from the groomers, and a few glades to try out!  We've had people saying these last few days have been some of the best snow EVER, come get your share of the terrific conditions and non-stop sunshine!  Single-digit temps overnight are keeping the base and trail coverage in first-rate shape, while mid-30s in the daytime is just what we like to enjoy by afternoon.  Our parks are loaded with options for shredders offering up a mixture betwen jump, jibs and fun rails to test your skills.  The best way to cash in on this welcome string of March nor'easters is with your new 18/19 season pass!  The rest of this season is included free for new passholders so you can start using yours today- our passes also feature free and convenient financing.

Special Notes

Tuesday's Lunch Special is an appetizer sampler basket featuring mac n cheese bites, pizza logs and boneless wings for just $9.  Don't forget, Why Not Wednesday is on again this week- get a discounted $48 lift ticket when you bring us an unopened Coca-Cola product!  Quick Reminder: Getting on the lift with kids?  It's best for the adult to ride in the middle, and for the smallest child to load closest to the lift attendant.   Looking for some terrific cross-country skiing or snowshoeing?  Visit our beautiful Nordic Center at the North Creek Ski Bowl- it's open until 8pm Wednesday-Sunday.

Mountain Bike Skills Development Camp

Mountain Bike Class

Saturdays- July 29, August 12, & September 16 (join us for one or all of these camps).  All-day and 1/2 day options available!

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

  • 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.
