We are expecting the snow and mixed precipitation to stay with us throughout Thursday as more winter-like makes a welcome return- look for conditions tightening throughout the day as the temperatures drop and the winds pick up.  The snow coverage is excellent and groomers have laid out the goods on miles of terrain from summit to Saddle to Village Slopes!   You can keep your turns going right through 8pm under the lights at the North Creek Ski Bowl.  On Saturday, plan on joining us for our Leap Day Scavenger Hunt- you can earn stickers throughout the mountain and get your card validated for a chance to win a new pair of skis!  Check our e-ticket deals online to reload your SKI3 Card online in advance for direct-to-lift access, or plan to get your SKI3 Card at the mountain if you're joining us for the first time this season.

Cross-Country Skiing - Gore Mountain

Nordic Girl in Race

Trail A

This gently rolling terrain allows for a variety of nordic skiing techniques. The trail begins as a low gradient climb through woodlands and then transitions to a low gradient descent with a nice banked turn to the open stadium area. The trail continues after the stadium to gain a ridge via a medium gradient climb and then transitions to a medium gradient descent back into the stadium.  (1.06K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail B

A significant climb will challenge the skier, but soon reward as well with two beautifully sculpted banked turns. Carrying speed from the bottom turn will allow a sublime transition back to Trail A's medium gradient climb.  (.45K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Trail C

This trail begins with the steepest climb of the trail system. This high gradient hill is short, steep, and sweet, and will definitely raise the heart rate. After the climb, the trail mellows out to a wide open flat stretch followed by a medium gradient climb to reach the highest elevation of the trail system. The wide turn and medium gradient descent allows the skier recovery time before dropping into the sculpted banked turns of Trail B.  (.56K, Snowmaking, Grooming , Lights)

Trail D

Meandering through soft and hardwoods with gently rolling terrain and a 'Norwegian sweet spot' climb of 8-9% grade, this trail has a wonderful flow.  Trail D will be opened with natural snow and during daytime operations.  (.59K, Grooming)

This trail presents a variety of climbing and descent gradients, and a spectacular vista to view the Moxham Mountain & Valley and the High Peaks.  Trail E will be opened with natural snow and during daytime operations.  (.46K, Grooming)

A fun and challenging terrain park-like trail with roller coaster dips, a gap jump, bicycle dips, a table top jump, and slalom turns.  This trail offers nordic skiers opportunity to work and develop balance, speed, and agility.  (.09K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

The test loop and bottom of Trail F allows skiers to dial in wax and check ski speed, as well as a choice to have some fun on nordic terrain park features.  (.23K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)
