We are open Saturday-Sunday for pre-winter fun including scenic gondola rides, downhill mountain biking, adventure activities, workshops, and events!  Buy an e-ticket for our activities in advance for terrific savings.  Keep in mind your 17/18 season pass includes unlimited gondola access and hiking every weekend.  Carl Heilman joins us this Saturday for his annual on-mountain photography workshop- reserve your spot today!

Join us Saturday, September 30 for the Leaf Cruncher 5K trail walk/run.  Registration includes a scenic gondola skyride amid colorful foliage and entry for outstanding raffle prizes including outdoor gear, fall-themed items, lift tickets, and locally handmade treats from Barkeater Chocolates!

We are excited for extensive renovations to three of our lodges!  The size of the Saddle Lodge is doubling, the original 1967 gondola unloading station at Gore's summit is being transformed into the new Straight Brook Lodge, and we're expanding the rental shop, children's program center, and bathrooms of the Northwoods Lodge.  Be sure to stay in touch to keep up with all of our projects and improvements as they progress!

During the warmer months, we happily host weddings, reunions, corporate parties, and other types of gatherings which can feature mountaintop happenings and our year-round catering services.
