Thanks to the hard work of our snowmakers along with a huge blessing from Mother Nature we opened four lifts and tons of terrain including three glades, along with the Nordic Center at the Ski Bowl last weekend! Watch our raw edit of Opening Day!
Our snowmakers are laying out beautiful snow at the Saddle Area, the top of Showcase, Foxlair, Lower Sleighride, Wild Air, and 2B. This is an exciting year for our snowmaking department- we've renovated the pump house, added larger pipes that have increased our pumping capacity by 42%, and purchased 397 new high-efficiency snow guns to the fleet. 312 of these guns are the latest in snowmaking technology, another batch of these snow guns are specifically for Nordic trails.
Gore delivers award-winning value, and there are so many ways to save.

The snowmaking news is huge- we've added 397 new guns and increased our water pumping capacity by 2,000 gallons per minute! We've also added two more grooming tractors to the fleet, paved the entrance and walkways in the Base Area, and are busy with a two-level expansion to the Base Lodge that is doubling the size of the Tannery Pub!
