We are excited to welcome back winter temperatures overnight Saturday, and groomers will be very busy on all mountain peaks!  Sunday's forecast notes more blustery weather; should winds delay any lifts, we will note that on this trail report as updates occur.  Be sure to look for the trail count rebounding over the coming days!  Relax apres-ski in the Tannery- live music begins at 1pm, or enjoy our full service menu available at 11am.  March 4-5 is an I Love NY Bonus Weekend- pair your 3-day lift ticket starting Friday or Saturday with 3 nights of lodging from $198 per person!   Be aware of recent weather changes, as always have fun while skiing with care. 

Special Notes

Please note that Echo & Crystal are open for racing only- good luck to all athletes in their U19 State Championships!  Sunday's food court lunch special is a chicken sandwich topped with provolone and bacon for $9, or grab a treat from our new waffle window at the Open Pit Grille!  On Monday and Tuesday, we are honored to be welcome New York's best nordic racers to the NYSPHSAA Nordic Championships at the North Creek Ski Bowl!  Safety reminder on the slopes:  All green circle trails are also slow zones.  Please reduce your speed and give beginners plenty of room to learn in these areas. 

The North Creek Ski Bowl

Gore's Original Base Camp- Where we're all locals!

Located at the foot of Little Gore Mountain, one of our four developed peaks, this second hub of Gore keeps a cherished history close, while steadily unfolding a variety of new adventures for you to discover.  A year-round recreation and community complex, the Ski Bowl offers alpine skiing and snowboarding, freestyle fun, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing, mountain biking, hiking, and more!  Use of the Ski Bowl facilities is included with all day tickets and season passes. 

Read about our new Nordic terrain and other improvements at the Ski Bowl in a recent Saratoga Living article.

The Interconnect

Orient yourself to how the Hudson Chair, Burnt Ridge Mountain, and the North Side are networked so you get around our peaks efficiently and experience every corner of our resort without a shuttle ride.   You can take the Pipeline Traverse from the base of the North Quad (check out a shortcut via the new "Peace Pipe" trail) to access  terrain on Little Gore Mountain.  Or to get from the Ski Bowl to the rest of Gore's trails, take the Hudson Chair to the base of the Burnt Ridge Quad.  As always, be sure to check our daily trail reports to review what is open on the day you are visiting.
