Hey Gore Mountain fans, this is Cindy with your More Gore podcast for September 25 and 26. Our Northwoods Gondola skyride is open both days this weekend from 10am to 4pm. Enjoy this relaxing ride through the changing colors from enclosed cabins with convenient access to even more breathtaking views at our mountaintop observation deck, stone labyrinth, and interpretive loop. Our gondola skyride is fully accessible making it a perfect fall activity for the entire family to do together. Take our new fall leaf hunt with you on the trails - gather the six different types of colorful fallen leaves from our game card to earn a cool Gore Mountain sticker! Check out other free games and challenges on our website or ask about them when you arrive. Extreme downhill mountain biking trails are available, experienced riders can load their bike right onto the gondola and our family-friendly disc golf course in the base area forest is open too. 21/22 season passes include foliage skyrides and bring-a-friend tickets to share, downhill mountain biking, and a round of disc golf. Visit the passholder perks page (on our website) to see all the specials and discounts available now and during the snow season. Wondering what's new for winter 21/22? We've been busy widening and regrading trails while extending and improving our snowmaking capabilities. Crews are busy installing tower guns and replacing pipe on trails like Echo, The Arena, and Lower Sunway, meanwhile Black diamond skiers and riders will find an all-new entrance to the Lower Steilhang trail at the summit. There's fresh paint on the base area furnishings including our giant Adirondack chair- don't miss this signature Gore photo op at the base of the gondola! Join our team this winter- we've got a variety of seasonal and year-round positions available. Visit our employment page (online) for details or plan to attend one of our upcoming job fairs on October 23 or November 13. We're also hosting a snowmaker-specific job fair, coming right up on Friday, October 1, and our 2-day Instructor Hiring Clinic is scheduled for November 27-28. If you don't already have your season pass, check out the options and find links to purchase on our season pass page (online). Multi-week and season-long snow sports programs are on sale now- these popular options for kids, teens, and adults include lift access on scheduled program days, plenty of time on snow with our experienced instructors, and lots of fun too. We are open fall weekends through October 10. As always, availability is subject to change based on weather and other variables so check our activities report (online) for the most current information. Please check back next Friday for our October 2-3 mountain update. Thanks so much for tuning in- make it a great day!
