Gore Mountain has announced they are opening its professionally maintained cross-country trails to fat tire biking on non-holiday Wednesday nights. Bikers are welcomed to explore the Ski Bowl’s stadium layout, which features both grooming and snowmaking and includes a variety of inclines, flat stretches, and brief wooded routes.
Twilight trail passes for biking, snowshoeing, and nordic skiing are available for $12.
Upcoming recreational events at the Ski Bowl include a Full Moon Party on Friday, January 10th from 5 to 8 pm. Celebrate the first full moon of 2020 with discounts, guided snowshoe treks, cross-country and downhill skiing, games, and a bonfire.
The Ski Bowl Citizens Races will begin January 14, and continue every Tuesday night at 6 pm until February 18th. This non-competitive nordic and snowshoe race series evolves into a fitness club of friends getting together each week to track their progress and earn a chance to win fun raffle prizes awarded from area businesses and Gore Mountain. Event fees are free to all ticketed guests and season passholders.
Gore Mountain has two competition-level boardercross courses, and one of them is located at the Ski Bowl. Participants and spectators are encouraged to join the two USASA Boarder/Skiercross events, which will be held on Monday, January 20th and Saturday, February 8th.
The Ski Bowl hosts several prestigious races for Nordic competitions in high school, collegiate, and masters circuits. Upcoming events include the Mid-Atlantic Junior National Qualifiers January 18-19, the United States Collegiate Ski Conference Races February 22-23, and the New England Nordic Ski Association (NENSA) Eastern High School Championships March 13-15.
The Ski Bowl’s ampitheater-like layout offers excellent visibility for spectators of all of these events, and public is invited.
The Gore Mountain Nordic Center has an updated trail map and interested visitors can review its upcoming events. For more information, visit their website or call (518) 251-2411.
