After a terrific Opening Weekend, we look forward to welcoming you back for the start of our daily operations on Friday, November 24!  Both downhill and cross-country skiing terrain will be open.  Until then, have a fun and safe Thanksgiving and know our snowmakers are working around the clock as weather allows to bring you more trails for Friday.  Guns are going on beginner terrain, Foxlair, Wild Air, Ruby Run, and Nordic loops at the North Creek Ski Bowl.  Give the gift of Gore this holiday season- we have gift cards available in any denomination that never expire, 4-packs of transferable tickets for easy giving, and frequent skier cards for every member of the family.

Special Notes

Early Season Schedule: CLOSED Monday-Thursday, 11/20-24.  OPEN DAILY FOR THE SEASON: 11/24/17. 

We are excited about extensive renovations to three of our lodges!  The size of the Saddle Lodge has doubled and more dining will be available there this winter.  Meanwhile, the original 1967 gondola unloading station at Gore's summit has been transformed into the new Straight Brook Lodge- it's beautiful.  We're also expanding the rental shop, children's program center, and restrooms of the Northwoods Lodge.

See you this winter!

Trail A

This gently rolling terrain allows for a variety of nordic skiing techniques. The trail begins as a low gradient climb through woodlands and then transitions to a low gradient descent with a nice banked turn to the open stadium area. The trail continues after the stadium to gain a ridge via a medium gradient climb and then transitions to a medium gradient descent back into the stadium.  (1.06K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail B

A significant climb will challenge the skier, but soon reward as well with two beautifully sculpted banked turns. Carrying speed from the bottom turn will allow a sublime transition back to Trail A's medium gradient climb.  (.45K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail C

This trail begins with the steepest climb of the trail system. This high gradient hill is short, steep, and sweet, and will definitely raise the heart rate. After the climb, the trail mellows out to a wide open flat stretch followed by a medium gradient climb to reach the highest elevation of the trail system. The wide turn and medium gradient descent allows the skier recovery time before dropping into the sculpted banked turns of Trail B.  (.56K, Snowmaking, Grooming , Lights)

Trail D

Meandering through soft and hardwoods with gently rolling terrain and a 'Norwegian sweet spot' climb of 8-9% grade, this trail has a wonderful flow.  Trail D will be opened with natural snow and during daytime operations.  (.59K, Grooming)

Trail E

This trail presents a variety of climbing and descent gradients, and a spectacular vista to view the Moxham Mountain & Valley and the High Peaks.  Trail E will be opened with natural snow and during daytime operations.  (.46K, Grooming)

Trail F

A fun and challenging terrain park-like trail with roller coaster dips, a gap jump, bicycle dips, a table top jump, and slalom turns.  This trail offers nordic skiers opportunity to work and develop balance, speed, and agility.  (.09K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail G

The test loop and bottom of Trail F allows skiers to dial in wax and check ski speed, as well as a choice to have some fun on nordic terrain park features.  (.23K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail H

This trail offers some of the easiest opened terrain for nordic skiers to work on a variety of techniques and interval training.  (.55K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail I

This trail provides another B climb with 30' width and a lovely turning descent.  The open return to Trail H is ideal for working on V-2 alternate technique.  (.25K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail J

For the beginner level skier, Trail J follows a flat stretch from the Joe Minder Lodge to the base of the Hudson lift.  After circling the base of the Hudson lift, skiers will turn right to head into a wooded section.  The trail makes a short gentle climb before turning left, then continues on a very modest climb before coming out under the Hudson Chair lift line. It then makes a gentle descent to merge into Trail H.  (.47K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail K

For the snowshoe enthusiast, this trail begins on the right of the Yurt, at the base of the Village Chair. This trail consists of a short loop following a natural ridge line, which offers excellent views of the entire Ski Bowl.  (.28K)

Where can I get some cross-country skis or snowshoes?

Rentals for both are available in the Ski Bowl Lodge- have fun!
