Ski season could begin in a little over a month, so it isn’t too early to get excited about new ski trails in the Adirondacks. Over at the North Creek Ski Bowl by Gore Mountain, FrontStreet Mountain Development has transferred ownership of 35 acres of ski trails to the Town of Johnsburg, expanding the Ski Bowl’s trail system.

The North Creek Ski Bowl is owned by the Town of Johnsburg, but FrontStreet Mountain Development owns the adjacent property where it has been developing Ski Bowl Village. Described as the only ski-in/ski-out site on Gore Mountain, Ski Bowl Village will become a winter resort featuring multiple townhouses, single-family homes, five hotels, and more.
While FrontStreet Mountain Development continues to construct Ski Bowl Village, the company has also been working with the Town of Johnsburg to help expand the Ski Bowl’s recreational opportunities. Previously, FrontStreet Mountain Development transferred ownership of 38 acres of adjacent property to the town.
The latest land transfer includes roughly 35 acres of prime ski terrain, and all of it will go to the Town of Johnsburg. The property will become a part of the existing trail system at the Ski Bowl and be made available for skiers in the near future.
Over the years, the Town of Johnsburg has been restoring the historic North Creek Ski Bowl, which has been around since the 1930s. In 2011, the town was able to complete the Interconnect – the final trail connection between the Ski Bowl and Gore Mountain.
All of Gore Mountain is accessible from the Ski Bowl’s trail system, and skiers on both ends are able to explore the vast ski terrain. Once the additional trails open at the Ski Bowl, skiers at Gore Mountain will be able to traverse their way over and enjoy them as well.
