Thank goodness it's Friday- Mother Nature is predicted to sprinkle us with flurries all day, helping us get into the holiday and skiing spirit!  Our midweek skiers have been loving the soft snow and fantastic coverage.  Lower Sleighride has a few berms and rollers now, check out a little more freestyle action added to the mix.  Groomers are laying down the goods on 100% of open terrain, and snowmakers have lit up Showcase, 2B, Uncas, and Tannery while finishing Lower Sunway as well.   All of this terrain is planned to open throughout the weekend, so stay tuned.  You can now check out a longer stretch of Sunway, open to the 3B trail.  Please note the Northwoods Gondola is open for intermediates and experts only today- beginners should find their turns on Bear Cub Run. 

Special Notes

Friday's lift ticket prices are discounted to $69 for adults, $59 for teens and seniors, and just $39 for juniors- save an additional $10pp when you donate a non-perishable food item at the window!  Enjoy lunch at the Food Court- Fridays's special is a Fish Fry- hand-breaded haddock with french fries and your choice of tartar or cocktail sauce for $12.  RFID Tip: Keep your new SKI3 Card in a pocket all by itself when passing through the gates.  Our Nordic Center at the Ski Bowl is open noon-6pm today!  Safety reminder: Riding the lift with small children?  Load so the smallest one is located between you and the lift attendant.

The North Creek Ski Bowl

Since 1934, Gore Mountain's Original Base Camp

Located at the foot of Little Gore Mountain, one of our four developed peaks, this second hub of Gore keeps a cherished history close, while steadily unfolding a variety of new adventures for you to discover.  A year-round recreation and community complex, the Ski Bowl offers alpine skiing and snowboarding, freestyle fun, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing, mountain biking, hiking, and more!  Use of the Ski Bowl facilities is included with all day tickets and season passes. 

The Interconnect  

Orient yourself to how the Hudson Chair, Burnt Ridge Mountain, and the North Side are networked so you get around our peaks efficiently and experience every corner of our resort without a shuttle ride.   You can take the Pipeline Traverse from the base of the North Quad (check out a shortcut via the "Peace Pipe" trail) to access terrain on Little Gore Mountain.  Or to get from the Ski Bowl to the rest of Gore's trails, from the Hudson Chair head down Peaceful Valley to the Eagle's Nest Bridge on skiers right, cross and continue down Eagle's Nest to the base of the Burnt Ridge Quad.  As always, be sure to check our daily trail reports to review what is open on the day you are visiting.

Twilight Skiing/Riding

Extend your ski day or join us after school/work for fun under the lights of Village Slopes- the terrain can be as easy or as challenging as you make it.  Our half pipe & boarder/skiercross are also under the lights at the Bowl.  Look like a star while you show off some new tricks!  Your Gore Mountain lift ticket includes same-day access to the Village Chair.  Don't have a day ticket or season pass?  Twilight tickets are valid 3-8pm and can be purchased in the Ski Bowl Lodge.  Frequent skier card discounts apply, please note that twilight visits do not count toward cardholder's free sixth day.
