What's Happening

We hope this chilly forecast has you in a snowy mood....did you know that for the 5th year in a row, we're adding another big fresh fleet of new snowmaking guns?  Can't wait to put them to work in a few short weeks.  Another exciting update is our new nordic operation at the North Creek Ski Bowl- we're introducing 4k of nordic/snowshoe terrain that features both lights and grooming.  Access to these trails are included with all day tickets and season passes. 

Interested in joining our team? Don't miss our job fair on October 29!

Special Notes

To get you geared up for the season, be sure to take note of our November 11 price deadline for season passes and multi-week snow sports programs.  Parents and kids alike love our season-long and 6-week programs for ages 4-12!  Meanwhile, adults can register in advance and save on our midweek programs- Ladies Escape on Wednesdays or co-ed Secret Society of Skiers on Thursdays.  Did you know that all 16/17 season passes include a built-in bonus lift ticket to share with friends or family? 

We have many other ways to save for the upcoming winter- frequent skier cards include your first day at Gore and every 6th day FREE, with discounts for each visit between!   Choose your days in advance and save with e-tickets, or for the most flexibility consider our four-pack Snow Samplers, these vouchers are accepted any day of the season but only available to purchase through December 9.

Thank you so much for tuning in, this is Emily with your More Gore podcast for the beautiful second half of August.  We are open Saturdays & Sundays, 10am-4pm for off-season activities including for scenic gondola skyrides, hiking & downhill mountain biking, and adventure attractions around the base area.  We are offering a downhill mountain biking camp for just $59 on Saturday, August 20.  Keep in mind your 16/17 season pass includes access to scenic rides and hiking this summer and fall!  And speaking of those passes, the best available pricing is in effect for those and four-pack snow samplers until November 11.  Our passes include built-in non-holiday bonus tickets to add to the fun for your friends and family. 
Frequent skier cards are another great option for saving on every lift ticket purchase, you can grab yours with early bird savings of $10 off in effect until August 31.  Did you know Gore is a ski industry leader in sustainability?  Learn about our new solar energy initiative and our other award-winning environmental successes on our Environment page at 

We're busy getting our new trail map ready to roll, printing you fresh and fun posters and stickers, we redid all of the upper level lodge flooring and have dressed up the unloading area of the High Peaks Chair.  Look for these and other updates on your next winter visit.  Visit us any day from 9am-4pm for season pass photos and pickups- look for us at the ticket desk in the base lodge on weekends, or in the Northwoods Lodge Monday-Friday.  Thanks for tuning in. You make it a great day out there!
