Spring Fun!

Spring Fun in North Creek!

Well, the ski season is a memory, but there is plenty of Spring Fun to be had in the mountains!  Local trails have dried out for hikers and mountain bikers.  It is prime fishing season and both RevRail and the Whitewater Rafting Outfitters are up and running for the season.  There is a new Widlund Gallery opening at Tannery Pond Community Center (May 11-June 18).

Skiing!

Well, after a disappointing early end to the winter ski season – like a flash – here we are in the Spring Skiing zone!  And with the impressive snowmaking and grooming at Gore – it is GREAT Spring Skiing!  Deep bases should see skiing into mid April. (No closing date has been announced yet).  And, if you want a bargain – skiers and riders can purchase next year’s season pass now and ski the remainder of this season.  Garnet Hill’s XC-Skiing and Gore’s Ski Bowl Nordic have closed for the season.
Update – Gore is planning on operating Apr. 29, 30 and May 1st!

Rafting! 

Spring Rafting usually begins April 1st and lasts thru May.  As with Summer Rafting on the Hudson, Spring rafting trips are run Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sundays.  However, most outfitters will run Spring trips just on the weekends, Saturday and Sunday.  Aside from spectacular Adirondack wilderness scenery, the upper Hudson in Spring can offer Colorado-big whitewater with true adventure class rapids!  Outfitters provide everything adventurers need to have a great trip on the river – wetsuits, professional guides, all river equipment, transportation and river snacks or a meal at trips end.

Fishing, Hiking, Mt. Bikes

The North Creek area is home to the 114,000 acre Siamese Ponds Wilderness Area and is adjacent to many more remote State Land areas including the Hudson Gorge Wilderness area.  Trout fisherman can seek the wily Brook Trout in remote ponds, the Upper Hudson River and hundreds of miles of streams, brooks and beaver flows.  Hikers and mt. bikers may want to wait for late Spring to begin hikes and bike trips.  Early Spring still sees many areas of ice and snow on the ground especially on trails that saw a lot of ski and snowshoe use all winter.

Spring Skiing – Not so Fast – Winter Storm Watch!

 

More Rain has come and gone – the groomers have done a great job of bringing back great skiing!  But, we’re looking at a new Winter Storm for Friday thru Saturday with cold temps following.  This should produce the best skiing of the year – so get after it!  Here is the latest report.  (All Gore Mt. lift tickets MUST be purchased online prior to arrival – CLICK HERE). 
At last check – there were NO Sold Out dates for Gore in the near future.

 If Gore is Sold Out – What’s a skier to do?  There are other ski options in the area.  The Ski Bowl in North Creek is home to the Village Chair and the Gore Mt. Nordic Center.  Perhaps scale your day to twilight skiing on the Village Chair 3PM-8PM (and it’s only $26 for adults, $19 for Juniors and $10 for kids).  More Info CLICK HEREIf you’ve never tried Nordic skiing – the Ski Bowl is the perfect place to start!  With lights and snowmaking, rentals and lessons it’s great fun!  Ski Bowl Nordic Info CLICK HERE

Not to be undone – there is additional Cross Country Skiing at Garnet Hill Lodge and Outdoor Center.  Garnet Hill is fully open thanks to the recent storm with 50+Km of trails groomed and track-set!  There is also some great backcountry skiing and snowshoeing in the neighboring Siamese Ponds Wilderness area.

More Options for Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding are two neighboring ski areas, Oak Mt. in Speculator, and West Mt. in Queensbury – both about 35 miles away.  Both require advance ticket purchase.  Oak Mt. Website  |  West Mt. Website

Weather and Outdoor Conditions

 

Get out there!  Cold-ish for Thur/Fri.  Maybe a little too cold for you – some tips:  Ride the “Indoor” lift aka the Gondola.  Ski some of the “sun facing” chairs – The North Lift and the Summit will have that sun beaming on you for the ride back up!  Still too cold?  Try Cross Country Skiing.  Both Garnet Hill and Ski Bowl Nordic have groomed cross country ski trails, lessons and rentals.  Give it a try – the added activity will warm you up quickly – and of course skiing is skiing!  More Weather Info…CLICK HERE

Into Every Life, a Little Rain Must Fall!

 

Well, our run of stellar winter weather and packed powder has come to a temporary end with the warming of last weekend.  Current forecasts are calling for as much as an inch of rain on Thursday and Thursday night with temps in the 40s.  But the warm-up is short lived with a sharp cold front sweeping through on Friday.  Snowmakers and groomers will be out in force.  Trail and lift counts should remain high for the President’s Week.   Here is the latest report.  There is some opportunity for snow in the next week – but alas some days are sold out for advance purchase lift tickets. (All Gore Mt. lift tickets MUST be purchased online prior to arrival – CLICK HERE).  And do check back – even for day-of tickets on the website as there are cancellations with Covid cases rising.  Pictured left – recent Boarder-Cross event at Gore!  A preview event for next year’s World University Games.
