North Creek This Week, Thru Jan 17, 2022



Gore Mountain is stylin’!  With aggressive snowmaking and grooming, the mountain has an impressive amount of terrain open given our natural snow drought.  Here is the latest report.  That’s the good news – and 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. 

So, 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 HERE.  If 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

Ski Bowl Nordic – Our first week of Citizen Races begins this Wednesday, January 12th!  Registration will be on site this year before each race, beginning at 5:00 pm and running through 5:45 pm. Races will start at 6 pm each week. For the time being, registration will be outside under the open pavilion adjacent to the Lodge. Racers are allowed to use the Lodge, but must be masked.  Whether you decide to snowshoe, classic ski, or skate ski, and regardless of the number of loops you choose to race (1,2,3 or 4), you’re only competing against yourself week to week. The race loop will be held on our 1.2K Citizens’ Course, professionally groomed as always.  Raffle prizes to follow each race. Thanks to Becks Tavern, Cobble Creek Farm, and others for sponsoring our raffle! Also, thanks to Underdog Race Timing for being our timer again!

Not to be undone – there is additional Nordic Skiing at Garnet Hill Lodge and Outdoor Center.  Even with the lack of snow, Garnet Hill has managed to keep 10K of trails open.  Albeit, thin in spots – some of the trails are in great shape.  Offering a complete ski shop, lessons and rentals, Garnet Hill is a good choice.  More Information CLICK HERE!

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

Also – as of Thursday, Jan. 13th – Whiteface was NOT sold out for any of the weekend days, 1/15, 16, or 17.  Link HERE.


Weather and Outdoor Conditions

Well, winter has not really kicked in yet with snow – but plenty of cold weather has helped the snowmakers at Gore.  Backcountry skiing and snowshoeing is still “waiting” for a deeper base.  Garnet Hill is skiing 10K of so of trails and inch by inch it will get better.  Here’s the weather for week.  And much more weather reports, snowfall maps and more CLICK HERE
