The mountains offer bars at the base and top lodges, snow-tubing, and in some instances alpine sledding and zip-lining.
If you booked and saw that you processed a payment, you also received a confirmation email; however, sometimes this email ends up in the junk mail. Check this folder, and if you still have not received it, let us know and we’ll be happy to email it to you directly.
You will receive these once you arrive at the mountain on the trip you booked. The Zora Escapes guide will explain in detail the process, but in a nut-shell, he or she will hand out the passes, rentals slips, lesson slips based on what you’ve purchased.
We aim to be back between 7:30pm-8:30pm. We realize this is quite a large window, but its contingent on traffic and weather conditions that are obviously outside our control. As we target the return times, we consider the safety of our guests which is of utmost importance to us.
The bus departs at 4:30pm from Hunter and Windham unless otherwise noted by the Zora Escapes guide on the day of the trip.
The beginner package includes the bus ticket, rentals (ski, snowboard, binding, boots, helmet, poles), group lessons (usually 5-10 people) and a pass to the lower mountain which includes magic carpet, as well as a number of blues and greens at the base of the mountain. This package is more suited to those who have never skied / snowboarded or who are still beginners (i.e. still wobbly on either board or skis).
In Greek, “Zoara” means “big life”, “living large”, and that is what we were originally thinking of when coming up with the name; however, we thought Zoara is a little awkward to pronounce, so we coined Zora. Zora characterizes our philosophy of forging lasting friendships through a healthy and active lifestyle and with a little a bit of adrenaline.
