— Officials from the Gore Mountain ski center recently released the results of the annual Restaurant Races, held Jan. 28. In all, there were 55 skiers who participated, representing five teams.

The coveted “Forkin’ Fastest” fork went to Pete's ahh (it’s their profile photo on Facebook), edging barVino, which had taken home the trophy in 2011 and 2012. Basil & Wick’s won for both Most Popular (knife trophy for recruiting the most racers) and Best Spirits (costumes, signage, bottom of course table setting with refreshments, etc.).

“Tons of fun!” said Gore Mountain Marketing Manager Emily Stanton. “Meanwhile we rocked out to themed tunes like ‘Eat It,’ and the area restaurant specials got announced throughout the event.”

Bob Yandon, of Newcomb, turned out the best time with 30.91 for the Pete’s ahh team. He was followed by barVino’s Pete Burns, of North River, with a time of 31.06; and Pete’s ahh’s Matthew Barnett, of North Creek, with 31.50. The five teams were ranked by taking the average of the top three racers:

1-Pete’s ahh (31.72)

2-barVino (32.41)

3-Basil & Wick’s (33.2)

4-Tannery Pub & Restaurant (36.97)

5-Black Mountain Restaurant & Tavern (41.22)
