  • We returned to Gunstock with our oldest son in tow for a family ski-vacation reunion. Gunstock did not disappoint, with the only negative that some of the higher-traffic area's were skied off in the a...  more »
  • It had snowed on Wednesday, so my hubby and I decided to head for some skiing up north. We decided on Gunstock as we saw that we could ski for 4 hours for a, um, Senior Citizen (over 60) price of $39....  more »
  • Skiing is okay for a beginner-intermediate area. The big problem is the parking system. They had cars parked three deep with the middle row of cars completely blocked in by the car in front and the ca...  more »

  • This has been my home ski mountain for years. Not the largest mountain ever, but good for what it is. They offer a reasonably priced college pass which I have taken advantage of. The staff is always friendly and sometimes they even come up to me and ask me how the runs are looking in my opinion. Gunstock offer a bus shuttle when the lots are filled on the weekends. Their website is updated daily with a snow report, and conditions, as well as 3 different 24/7 live web cams. A great place to bring families. If you're skiing alone the best option is to go early on a weekday and you'll get the whole mountain pretty much to yourself. I haven't been there during the summer yet, but I understand they do a mountain coaster and ziplining.
  • This is perhaps the greatest family oriented mountain in New England I work as a volunteer here, and because hundreds of volunteers work for this Belknap County owned mountain, it has a special atmosphere because the people who work here feel a special ownership of the place and what they do here. The terrain is great for a moderately small mountain, and the view from the summit is one of the best in all of New England as well. So, this just happened. We had this great day skiing in fresh snow with my step-son and his kids. It wives don't ski, so they spent the day in the Lodge catching up. We were splitting up and giving hugs downstairs in the middle of the lodge while the food service workers were finishing cleanup in the cafeteria, and they joined right in and hugged us good-bye. It was great.
  • I love that is relatively close to Boston and it has nice trails. They do a very good job grooming. Lift ticket prices are reasonable. They have any four hours of the day for $60 and that's nice if you don't want to ski all day. Private classes are also reasonable and they have good instructors.
  • I grew up and learned how to snowboard at Gunstock. Great instructors!! 15 years later and I still enjoy this mountain. Not terribly challenging, but a great place to spend going downhill. Be sure to go left. Not too crowded, no long lift lines with the RFID card system! Solid family mountain if that's your thing. Good basic pub food!
  • So pleased and proud to have this wonderful recreation center and ski resort in my "backyard". Always a first-class effort to provide the sporting public with lots to do year-round. Throw in spectacular views and exciting rides and you have no reason to go anywhere else.
