Gore Mountain: New Summer Amenities, Renovations

Gore Mountain is introducing new activities and installing several new attractions for visitors this spring, with a Grand Opening slated for Saturday, July 7. Several amenities have become available during June weekends, including “The Rumor Climbing Wall,” the “Wild Air Bungee Trampoline,” disc golf, and daily hiking excursions.

Other attractions coming soon include a huge inflatable obstacle course, base area and Bear Mountain interpretive walks, several educational opportunities featuring cooking classes, yoga retreats, photography camps, and jewelry workshops, and Friday evening Happy Hours. The Northwoods Gondola Skyrides and downhill mountain biking will also be open.

The new Open Pit Grille on the sundeck offers a full menu of southern barbeque specialties, traditional fare, and children’s selections. Year-round catering is available for corporate parties, weddings, and other special gatherings.

Gore will begin daily operations beginning  July 7 (through September 2 ), transitioning from a Saturday-Sunday schedule in effect during the spring and fall. The gondola is open noon-3:30pm, and the other attractions and Open Pit Grille are open 11am-5pm.

Projects underway and expected to be complete by the upcoming winter season include a complete renovation of the Tannery Pub & Restaurant, which will feature a 100+-seat deck, new kitchen, new restrooms, and reconfigured bar and seating. Renovations to the Retail Shop and Saddle Lodge are in progress, as well as grooming and snowmaking enhancements.

This year’s passes offer perks including complimentary skyrides during this summer and fall, one complimentary group lesson, discounts on daily lunch specials, 10% off tuning, repair, and retail shop purchases, and 10% discounts at 15 other shops, restaurants, and attractions in the Gore Region.
