Are you ready for ski season yet? Gore Mountain is! The family-friendly ski resort in North Creek recently announced several new improvements that skiers and snowboarders can look forward to when the mountain opens for the year.
Gore has added three more trails to its 100+ existing offerings. Forever Wild is a modern freestyle glade that combines natural terrain park elements with the excitement of tree skiing. Hudson, located at the North Creek Ski Bowl, has been refined into a long, narrow black diamond trail, which follows the original route of the area’s earliest ski pioneers. Finally, The Peace Pipe is a new connector route that acts as a shortcut from the North Side of Gore to Pipeline Traverse.
Gore Mountain’s fleet of snowmaking equipment has grown even larger this off-season as the mountain purchased another round of high-efficiency tower guns. These newest ones have been placed primarily on Showcase and Wild Air, and require significantly less air than traditional ground guns, so the energy usage is lower.
Changes have been made to Headwaters in an effort to reduce the snowmaking required to open it and improve skier experiences on the trail. The loading area of the Straightbrook Quad was also regraded to ease the transition from Bear Mountain terrain to the entrance of the lift.
Interior changes include the relocation of the Guest Services Office to the resort entrance of Gore Mountain. The Bear Cub Den daycare has also been moved to a quiet and secure location on the lower level of the Base Lodge. Additionally, the complimentary wireless internet and flooring have both been upgraded in the Base Lodge.
