About this event

There are two fun ways to participate in the Magical Leprechaun Race- you pick!

1) Volunteer to Join Team Leprechaun!

Earn your lift ticket for the day!  We're accepting up to 35 volunteers - it's first-come, first-served so secure your spot on Team Leprechaun today. Leprechaun costumes are required, prize for best dressed - you will also be in a short parade through the base area to the Sunway Chair. 

Please email to join Team Leprechaun. You don't need to be an amazing racer, but you do need to be an intermediate or better skier or rider, show up in spirited attire, participate in the Parade of the Leprechauns, and be ready to run several laps through our race gates starting at 10am. 

Racing experience/fast skiing NOT required. All ages welcome! This could tie up several hours of your day, depending on the number of challengers that sign up. Our event staff will release you from your duty after the race ends.

2) Race Against the Leprechauns for Prizes

All registered racers automatically receive one entry into our awesome raffle prize pool! Register in the base lodge between 8am and 9:30am. Download the registration form (coming soon to Gore's website) to complete in advance. Kids - make sure to have your parents sign.

You'll get two chances to earn additional raffle entries by racing a Leprechaun. Be first through the finish on either of two runs to get your name entered in the raffle pool for a second (and third) chance to win!

Both "teams" will start in a designated order. Leprechauns will be of various ages and skiing abilities. Get as far ahead of the Leprechaun as you can. Prizes will also be awarded to the top seven racers, with scoring based on greatest winning time margins against the Leprechaun.


  • 8am to 9:30am: Registration in the Base Lodge
  • 9:40am: Parade of The Leprechauns
  • 10am: Race Start - a dual slalom on The Arena
