The the colder temps are staying with us tonight- snowmakers and groomers are on the move with efforts to turn the terrain around as quickly as possible!   Be aware of areas of thin cover and bare spots, keep your speed low, and as always, have fun while skiing with care.  Some areas/trails may open later in the day.  Our Women Only Ski and Snowboard Clinics are happening this Saturday and Sunday- clinics include tickets, meals, instruction, and celebration, and we encourage ladies of all ability levels to take advantage of this value-packed deal.  For a limited time, we are excited to be distributing our Ski Bowl Illustration poster- it's free for passholders and $10 for everyone else!  Check out the details.

Special Notes

Snowmakers are on the job, with efforts focused on the top of Bear Mountain, throughout Sunway, Foxlair, Bear Cub Run, and the Ski Bowl.  Friday's Food Court Lunch Special is a tasty Tuna Melt Panini for $9.  Or, take a break mid-mountain in the beautiful Saddle Lodge which serves food- including their delicious pulled pork or chicken tacos and cold or warm beverages.  While there, take in the stunning views of the Adirondacks!  Safety Tip: If you are merging onto a trail, be sure to look uphill and yield to others.  Please note, Echo and Crystal will be open for racing only today.

Thank you so much for tuning in, this is Emily with your More Gore podcast for Friday, February 23, Ski Day #94.

Snowmakers and groomers are back at it for a long night of resurfacing everything we can and re-opening several trails as well, Mother Nature has been throwing our crews their share of challenges for sure- but right now most important that you guys know we are doing the very best we can with the hand we've been dealt- and we are gearing up to offer you as great a day we can, for today and well beyond. 

So North Quad back in business with Sleeping Bear, we've also got Chatiemac, Lies, & Topridge on the roster- as long as things go well with the groomers those runs are back open- plans subject to change of course- thanks everyone for your patience, we are looking for 48 trails ready to go, serviced by 13 lifts. 

 There will be areas of bare spots and variable conditions- everything we have time to groom will be groomed- guns focused on the top of Bear Mountain and and on Sunway, Foxlair, Bear Cub, and hopefully Quicksilver as well.  Thursday night offering a much longer stretch of cold than Wednesday and with temps dipping into the teens, that is really helpful for us,

Some trails may open a little later into the day- We will be evaluating terrain and getting it open as conditions allow.

Snow showers and mixed precipitaition likely today, High near 36. Light southeast wind becoming south 8 to 13 mph in the morning.

we are now distributing our beautiful new posters paying a little tribute to the history-rich North Creek Ski Bowl.  This poster is free for passholders, $10 for everyone else, go to Guest Services in the Northwoods Lodge between 11am and 3pm to pick yours up- while they last guys, these are limited edition for sure.  Full details about this and all happenings right on our events page- which includes our women-only ski and snowboard clinics for all levels this weekend- choose from Saturday-only or full weekend options.

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


Please note that podcasts are produced during the late afternoons, for the next ski day.  As with all ski reports, the information is subject to change without notice.
