NORTH CREEK On Saturday, July 7, Gore Mountain will officially unveil its new lineup of spring and summer attractions.
Some of the activities have been available during June weekends, but Gore will launch an expanded schedule on opening day that will include a variety of recreational and educational activities in addition to the Northwoods Gondola Skyrides and downhill mountain biking usually offered during the summer.
The Rumor climbing wall, the Wild Air bungee trampoline, disc golf and daily hiking excursions are already being offered, but visitors will now have the option of participating in an inflatable obstacle course, Bear Mountain interpretive walks and Friday evening happy hours.
Cooking classes, yoga retreats, photography camps and jewelry workshops will also be available.
All of the activities will take place daily between July 7 and Sept. 2. Most attractions will be open between 11 a.m. and
5 p.m. The gondola will be open from noon until 3:30 p.m.
The new Open Pit Grille on the sundeck offers a full menu of southern barbecue specialties, traditional fare and children’s selections. Year-round catering is available for corporate parties, weddings and other special gatherings.
“Summer 2012 has opened up a new window of opportunity for expanding our four-season activities,” said Emily Stanton, Gore’s marketing manager. “Just as with our winter offerings, we look forward to making steady improvements to the summer customer experience.”
But Gore isn’t just revamping its summer roster. The Tannery Pub and Restaurant is undergoing renovations for the winter months and will feature a seating deck for more than 100 patrons, new kitchen, new restrooms and reconfigured bar and seating.
The retail shop and Saddle Lodge are also being renovated, and major grooming investments and snow-making system enhancements are also planned.
Season pass holders will have access to complimentary skyrides and self-guided hiking this summer and fall, one complimentary group lesson, discounts on daily lunch specials, 10 percent off tuning, repair and retail shop purchases, and 10 percent discounts at 15 other shops, restaurants and attractions in the Gore region.
The Gore Mountain friends discount program allows people to obtain discounted or even free season passes.
