Glide N Gorge – Saturday March 2, 2019

GNG 2015 bThe 11th annual Glide N Gorge will again be held on the Saturday of Copper Dog weekend. Come on out for great fun and even better eats from noon until 3pm at the Maasto Hiihto ski trails in Hancock. 

For this unique event, you’ll start at the Four Seasons Chalet, located at the north west corner of the Houghton County Fair Grounds. As always, we welcome you to classic ski, snow shoe, or snow bike! Kids in pulks and dogs are also welcome.

Due to flood related trail closures the traditional ski down Swedetown Creek is in the process of being modified for this year’s course. But you can still expect to experience a fantastic skiing experience with your friends. The revised route will be announced soon but expect a ski roughly equivalent to the 3.5 mile course of years past. 

Plan on a station for tasty appetizers, a toasty warm bon fire and friendly conversations, along with a separate stop for bowls upon bowls of soups, stews, and chilies with plenty of homemade bread and hot and cold beverages awaiting your hungry arrival. 

After sampling all of the delicious food and spending some time enjoying the fellowship of others, you will begin your journey to the GNG Grand Finale of mouth watering desserts as you enjoy live music at the Four Seasons Chalet.  You won’t want to miss out on this incredible afternoon.

Tickets for this event are $20 for adults; we invite kids and well-behaved dogs to come for FREE! Get your tickets early – they go for $25 at the door. Consider purchasing extra tickets to give to friends.
