Winter Storm "Harper" delivered the goods- we got buried in 22" of fresh powder! You know what that means: terrain opening all over the mountain, glade-skiing galore, and a fantastic day of powder fun in store for you. Due to the arrival of this storm, we have postponed the Fireworks and Torchlight Parade to a later date, but plan to relax with some après-ski music from The Blonde Roots in the Tannery from 3-6pm.
Start saving now- with our convenient e-tickets! The longer you ski, and the earlier you purchase, the more you save (can be up to 40% off). E-Tickets are available for every day of the snow season for all ages, in 1-day through 5-day options. Just note that there are limited quantities left of the prices you are seeing today, so the earlier you buy, the more you save! Frequent Skier Cards are another great way to save daily on ticket purchases at Gore, Whiteface, & Belleayre.
The winter fun doesn't stop when the sun goes down- Village Chair at the Ski Bowl is open 3-8pm on Thursday & Friday, and 11am-8pm on Saturday & Sunday, and holiday period days. Have fun practicing your skills on the welcoming Village Slopes, or slide through the Boarder/Skiercross course (get ready for the USASA event there on Monday). You'll love the casual local vibe that the Lodge, Yurt, and fire pits offer- be sure to grab a tasty treat or hot cocoa at the food truck after your laps!
Have you always wanted to learn how to ski or snowboard? Now is your chance- every weekend in January first-time skiers and riders ages 13+ can cash in on a fantastic learning package that includes a 2-day lift ticket, (2) 90-minute class lessons, and specialty beginner rental equipment paired with a Friday/Saturday night stay in the Gore Region. Brace yourself and learn something new, because winter isn't coming, it's already here!
Join us for Tuesday evening racing held on our professionally groomed stadium course under the lights! Each week, everyone who races is entered into a drawing for fun prizes which include gift certificates, locally crafted goodies, and more! Every week, you earn a "chance" into the grand raffle happening February 19. Title sponsors include becks TAVERN, barVino, Basil & Wick's, and Barkeater Chocolates. Cobble Creek Farm and Adirondack Brew Pub have also contributed several prizes.
The Trench is open! This popular run combines glade skiing with some man-made features, for an exhilarating time. Forever Wild is up in running with some recently touched up features, so don't forget to duck in there for some fun. Down at the Ski Bowl, enjoy a speedy thrill on the Boarder/Skiercross course - keep in mind we are hosting the USASA Boarder/Skiercross competition there on Monday! Keep an eye on Wild Air, we've got some mammoth features in store for you there soon.
22" of beautiful snow on Sunday delivered a truly memorable day! We have tons of glades open all over the mountain. Be advised of today's cold forecast as the strong storm moves out and leaves low temperatures and blustery northwest winds behind. If you're out to grab your share of the fresh powder today, layer up well, stay hydrated, and stash some warmers and snacks in your pocket. Check out our lodges on most or every run today to keep yourself warm- the upper level of the Saddle Lodge is a particularly comfortable place to get cozy while enjoying the views! Groomers have been working hard to level out almost two feet of new snow- expect powder conditions again for Monday. High Peaks Area skiers- plan to exit that area via Wood Out and down to the North Quad. Remember to grab your e-tickets in advance and save yourself some time and money.
Don't forget, your lift ticket or season pass is valid at our Nordic Center and Village Slopes at the Ski Bowl, where tomorrow we will be hosting the USASA Border/Skiercross event. This exciting freestyle race begins at 11am. Because there is more midweek snow in the forecast, check out our weekend ski and stay packages for future mountain fun! Safety reminder: Prior to using any lift, need to know how to load, ride, and unload safely. Be sure to ask one of our friendly lift attendants if you have any questions. They are there to help. Today's Food Court lunch special is a Bacon Cheeseburger for $9.50 (passholders always save 20% off the special).
