Hey Shredders: For the next couple of weeks, Ill point out some interesting things to look for on the mountain. Check out these fun features on your next More Gore Tour: *The old tailings from mining, skiers left on Wood Out *The lone pine on the ride up the Topridge Triple- sometimes offering a rest for the Gore Owl! *The tacky tree, featuring strange decor on the Straightbrook Quad lift line The JIII States are in town for four days! Say hello to our athletes and welcome these overnight racers into town. A few of us have been in agreement lately that we are Gore Geeks. What makes for a Gore Geek? Well theres lots of stuffChecking the website five or more times a day to see if the snowmakers are on the Rumor, calling the snow phone in the middle of the night, listening out your door in hopes to hear the guns are blasting (they are!), knowing how many ski days have passed since we groomed Jug Handle (a lot!), calculating the vertical feet youve skied so far this seasonWhatever your Gore Geek factor is, thanks! You make it fun for us to do what we do. Ill have you know, since the sap is due to start running soon- our head snowmaker has a cool maple sugar farm! He makes the best snow and the best syrup in the East (not that Im partial). This is a great time of year to think of yummy breakfasts in front of an awesome day of skiing - and Adirondack Gold syrup is whats in my kitchen. Do you like natural trails (no snowmaking, no grooming) and some of the challenges that come with them, but glades arent really your thing? Try Tahawus on the North Side, its one of my favorites on the mountain because of the views and the changing conditions. Ems lunch pick of the week: The deli wraps! Ask Rosie (the nicest person to ever make you a sandwich) to put yours under the grill for a little while with some nice provolone, and youre good to go. Snowboarders - grab a MORE GORE poster, free in the Marketing Office. See you next week!
