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.
