We have been to Gunstock several times over the past years. With and without kids. We always have a great time. This visit we tried the mountain coaster which was really fun! Try it at night. Sledding is great and skiing is always a blast! Great mountain for families with kids of all ages.

The lodges were over crowded, no where to sit or leave your bags. Ski instructors were good. Food was above average for a ski resort. Trails very icy, but this is expected in Jan. Really wish this resort could build some ski on/off lodging as the mountain is great for family skiing, but if you need a break, the base... More

Gunstock is our favorite ski destination in the state of New Hampshire. It is easy to get to, the staff are very friendly, the lifts are well run and in good shape and the trails are never crowded. Even on a holiday weekend, we never had much of a wait at the base on the quad. Snow is always in... More

I love Gunstock, I have been coming here for decades. Recently we brought some friends from Chicago and they loved it as well. Great snow this year so far.

We decided to go skiing in New Hampshire and Gunstock Mountain Resort was a quick drive up from Boston. Not only was the snow great, but the views were incredible from the top of the mountain (pic attached below!) It was my wife's first time and the instructors were so nice and did a wonderful job teaching her the practical... More

Had a good time cross country skiing. The x country ski hut is near the entrance of the resort. Paid our fees and were quickly provided with shoes and the skis. Staff very friendly and helpful. Trails start right outside. We were there in the afternoon so the trails were a bit firm and they had not had fresh snow... More

Just went for a day 1/2, but my daughter took her first ski lesson at Base Camp. Great professionally certified instructors who love kids. Didn't hit the slopes myself, but everyone was raving about the short waits and good conditions. The grounds had nice amenities, and the staff are very friendly.

We saw this place on one of Doug Armstrong's 'Visit New England' videos on YouTube and really wanted to go, so we booked in advance. We've never done such a brilliant ziplining experience! You get up to very high speeds and the views of the lake and surrounding countryside from the top of the mountain are incredible. It's pricey, but... More

Gunstock Mountain Ski resort is a great place to go zip-lining. My cousins and I, all over 50, and a friend visited the summer of 2015. We arrived at our appointed time, signed liability release form and geared up. The staff lead us to 3 practice lines, each higher than the other, to teach us how to use the equipment.... More
