Thank you so much for tuning in, this is Emily with your More Gore podcast for Saturday, January 20, Ski Day #60.

This weekend is jam-packed with events, music, and value-added skiing so let's get to it.  We're excited...

53 trails, serviced by 12 lifts- life is going to be good today with sunny skies and a mild day offering up a high near 37- it will be

on the breezy side with that steady west wind coming in at 9-16 mph that should keep things from feeling to balmy on us for


Day #1 of Take Your Kids to Gore Week- we look forward to this one all year because kids 19 and under ski or ride free with

full-paid parent for seven full days.  A great way to get you and your children on the hill!  Also several ladies signed up for your

choice of Saturday-only or full weekend clinics- those are open to all ability levels of skiers and snowboarders, and taught by a

hand-picked group of our best female instructors.   We do accept walk-ins, so make it an early morning to get after it and sign

up at the Snow Sports Desk! 

Kick it back with us in the Tannery this weekend- live music both days, today it's from the three-part talent of the Radio Junkies

3-6pm. In the food court, the lunch special is a Chicken Cordon Blue Sandwich for $9, passholders you get 20% off.  Safety

Reminder: If you need to stop on a trail, do so off to the side and where you are easily visible from above.

Guns continue on through Friday night on Sunway and 3b, Fairview, Uncas and Lower Uncas!  Groomers have lots going on

overnight of course, including a variety of steeps up top.  FIS racers welcomed to the last day of their major event on Echo

We thank you so much for calling us, and make it a great snow day out there!
