Canadian families flock to region

Welcome Canada! This week we are excited to see Canadian families celebrating their spring break in the Gore Region! Our largest ski group of the season is arriving this weekend from the beautiful city of Toronto. Their vacation days will include skiing and snowboarding at both Gore and the North Creek Ski Bowl, tubing, lodge parties, volleyball, and a "Reel Paddling Film Festival" at Tannery Pond. Aleks, the group leader, would welcome community attendance at the Tannery Pond event (donations are appreciated and seating is limited), which is at 7 p.m. on March 13. Were also happy to see the JI & JII Finals are here through Thursday- good luck to our athletes during this 7-day event and have fun. Tomorrow will be our annual Cardboard Derby - I'm anxious to see this years lineup. Weve had perfect jet replicas, Titanics, surfers, dinosaurs, crayon boxes, and Sponge Bob. If you didnt build a sled, this is a great spectator event too, visit us and see whos off to Aruba! Also warm your knees up for Walts Bump Contest next weekend, sponsored by Bordzup, a cool line of ski and snowboard racks for your home. Were happy to be hosting the "Ski for Tourism" event to support the Gore Region Chamber on St. Patricks Day! Stop by area businesses or the Chamber office before Saturday, March 15 to purchase a $39 voucher that includes your lift ticket and an apres-ski social with complimentary hors doeuvres and entertainment from acoustic musician Chip Chevalier 4-6 p.m. The Chamber will also have fun races and a 50/50. A great opportunity to network with the community and support the Chamber. Call Penny at the Chamber Office, (518) 251-2612 for more information. Ems favorite places on the mountain: The steep little chute in the middle of Lower Darby (or anywhere on the Dark Side), the cliffs in Twister Glades, the spot on Topridge where it goes from cool cruising to nice and steep, upstairs in the Saddle Lodge with a cup of Starbucks, the last pitch of Showcase, and in the Tannery with a Blue Moon. And the Marketing Office isnt too bad eitherI appreciate you all stopping in to see me with your questions and compliments, you help us make your mountain better. Speaking of the Tannery, theres always good music in there so come hang out! Well have Dreaded Wheat playing Sunday 1-5 p.m., theyre a great duo that also plays during our Harvest Festival. Say hello to Steph, our friendliest bartender. Remember for tonight, before bed, clocks ahead. This means bright afternoons on the sundeck are awaiting you after long days of skiing! The end of the season is nowhere in sight, (we WILL get another snowstorm - can't wait) so block your March and April weekends for us. See you next week, Em from Gore
