  • Gore Mtn. during ski season?

    I see the hiking trail to Gore, The Schaefer Trail, is closed in winter. For this winter's attempt I was thinking of simply doing Gore by the ski runs after the lifts close. Has anyone got any info on this? (ie. Need permission? Best ski run to take?)

    Definitely get permission. Large ski areas like Gore are 24 hour operations. Virtually as soon as the runs are swept and cleared, night operations start, with extensive snowmaking and grooming. There is heavy groomer and snowmobile traffic, along with winch cables, hoses, electrical cables, etc.. Contact area management to find out whether travel is OK, and if so, what route to take.

      you should ask on the fire tower FB group. there are at least a few people there who have hiked Gore for winter credit... but it could've been in the 2015-2016 season when there was very little snow.
