While doing our annual check of all of our ski links, we noticed that the Gore Mountain trail map has been updated to include the glades added to the North Creek Ski Bowl this off-season.
The obvious new additions to the map are the tree runs on skier’s left: the Hudson and Ski Bowl Glades. Two years ago, I walked the Hudson Chair liftline when it was being installed. There are some wide-open hardwood stands on that side, that have the potential to be as exciting the rest of the North Creek Ski Bowl terrain.
The new glades are made possible by the recent land swap of 26 acres between the Town of Johnsburg and Front Street Development. It’s still undetermined what side of 46er snowmaking will be installed on and whether or not the Hudson Glades will benefit from snowmaking blowby on the trail. Gore Mountain management is optimistic that 46er will have snowmaking for the start of the 2012-2013 season.
