Gore Mountain Apres Ski, Restaurants, & Bars

Gore Mountain’s apres ski, bar and dining scene is concentrated in North Creek, where skiers will find several cozy bars and restaurants. North Creek has several excellent dining options serving everything from traditional pub fare to tapas. Nightlife is limited.

The village of North Creek is home to several restaurants and bars. The Trappers Tavern at the Copperfield Inn is a popular choice for burgers and draft beers. Just outside of town is Basil and Wick’s. Basil and Wick’s is housed in a large Adirondack log-style building  astride Route 28. It is an apres-ski favorite with local skiers for its reasonably-priced food and large bar with flat screen tvs. The Tannery Pub in the Gore base lodge is the most happening apres-ski hangout.

For breakfast in North Creek there is Cafe Sarah on Main Street. We recommend their pastries and breakfast burritos. If driving in from I-87, we recommend a stop at Jacob & Tony’s Meat Store of the North. Their sausage, egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches won our award for the “Best Breakfast Sandwich in Ski Country.”

Nightlife options in North Creek are limited. Downtown North Creek has two main bars. The first, The Barking Spider is a narrow tavern with a fantastic sand shuffleboard table, relatively inexpensive food and drinks. It is a favorite with Gore staff and ski patrol, but be prepared to bring your own party since the bar is relatively uncrowded apart from apres-ski.

For a more upscale option in downtown North Creek try BarVino, a wine bar offering tapas fare. BarVino has a great selection of wines and beer on tap. Portions are more generous and more reasonably priced than many tapas restaurants.
