Skiing in Gunstock
Gunstock offers 50 trails accessed directly by high speed quad from base to summit.
There's night skiing on 17 trails and 80% snowmaking coverage.
Beginners will particularly enjoy the attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere and special ski school programmes to get them started including the award winning Mountain Magic first-timers program. The Learning Center Beginner Area is serviced by a handle tow surface lift. More than likely your first chairlift ride will be up Gunshy - a double chair serving a small area of easy terrain away from the main mountain skiing.
The vast majority of the mountain terrain is graded intermediate level however, with plenty of long blues to choose from sweeping down through the trees from the top of the Summit quad.
Experts have only three and a half percent of the terrain graded to them, but that includes more than half a dozen black diamond trails including Hotshot down below the upper section of the summit chair and Cannonball, over to the right. There are double black diamond glades next to Hotshot.
If you fancy adding to your skiing talents then there are race camps and Telemark ski courses.
You can stop by the Fischer Adventure Demo Center housed in a yurt to try out gear before you buy. There's also a free ski and snowboard check to keep your equipment safe.
The Cross Country & Snowshoe Center is a full service retail, rental and lesson facility. Gunstock's 50 kilometers of trail network offers a variety for all skate, track set or backcountry skiing or snowshoeing abilities.
