We are super stoked the holiday weekend is here!  This week's well-timed storm delivered over 10'' of fresh snow, and every lift and mountain area will be open all week, welcoming you to a well-deserved winter getaway and beautiful forecast ahead.  Today's bluebird day will see the murkier weather of Friday move on out- leaving behind some northwest breezes but an otherwise comfortable day!   Don't worry about a few glades and smaller runs hitting the pause button, we expect the trail count to bounce back quickly as the weather and snow move into an ideal flow of chilly nights and seasonable days.  Some ungroomed terrain might open a bit later in the morning as temperatures rise.  Our Interconnect with the Historic North Creek Ski Bowl is open daily- just a heads-up that we look forward to welcoming the USCSA Nordic Divisionals this weekend.  Are you skiing or snowboarding for the first time today?  Try our 1, 2, or 3-day learning packages that put together terrific value and results for ages 13+.

Special Notes

Kids love the fun of our Holiday Camps, and parents love the value and results- check out our 2-day option starting Saturday or our 3-day option kicking off on Tuesday!  Today's Food Court lunch special is a turkey melt panini for $9.50 (passholders always get 20% off the special).  For Saturday, make it an early morning for a good parking spot and our Cup o'Joe & Go lessons, say hi to the LL Bean Bootmobile, and plan to kick back in the beautiful Tannery Pub for live music.  The Village Chair will be spinning until 8pm nightly at the Ski Bowl!  All lift tickets and passes are also valid here, so extend your ski day into the evening hours with some fun runs under the lights.   Safety reminder:  In the parks, have a plan for each feature you plan to hit, and make sure your landings are clear before taking off.  While we're talking parks, plan to join us for Monday's USASA Boardercross

Wax 'n' Wix Candle Making Workshop

Wax 'n' Wix Candle Making Workshop

Wax 'n' Wix is bringing their "Make Your Own" candle shop to the Northwoods Lodge.  Add the spectacular views and comfortable ambiance at Gore Mountain to the interesting and rewarding activity of creating a beautifully handcrafted candle, for a "One of a Kind", memorable Adirondack experience.

Using our safe and fun process, which is suitable for individuals of all ages and skills, choose the shape of your candle, the color of wax, and a unique fragrance. You place the colored wax into prepared candle molds, Wax 'n' Wix chandler adds the hot wax and the scent. In 30 minutes, your beautiful, fragrant, handcrafted candle is ready and you enjoy the satisfying sense of a job well done!

All materials are provided, as well as the friendly and helpful instruction you need to complete this interesting and engaging task. Our "Candle Makers" enjoy the entire process. There are always a lot of laughs around the table as the members sample the various fragrances and plan their colored wax arrangement. The final product is beautiful!

We offer many shapes in two size options.  1lb candle is $10, 1 ¼ lb candle is $14.  Wax 'n' Wix provides everything, including molds, colored wax, a fragrance and detailed candle making instructions.

Walk-ups are welcome throughout the day.  Our workshop is open both days this weekend.  Allow for additional time on the mountain to enjoy a scenic gondola skyride or explore Gore's hiking/biking trail network and adventure activities.  Also look for our workshop during Harvest Fest 2018!
