Ruby Run Trail Construction - Gore Mountain Ski Resort

North Creek, NY

Project Details

  • Category: ski-mountains
  • Location: North Creek, NY
  • Schedule: Ahead of schedule

Scope of Work

To connect the top of the gondola with the intermediate trails, by blasting a trail through the highest cliff at the top of the mountain.


To fragment the rock so that it could be dug without breaking it to a degree that it would slump into the roadway.


We delivered a stable face through careful pre-splitting, excellent drilling parameters and minimal fragmentation. Our presplit cut was 70 feet.


The MD&B team finished 30% (20 days) ahead of schedule.


The mountain management knew what was important, and were pleased that we could provide that end product.
