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 $39.00. We were in cause we're over 60 (just barely)! We were on the slopes about 1:30 and skied til dark - about 5:15. It was fantastic that we did not have to get off at 4:00 like most ski areas. The conditions were very good due to a snowstorm the day before; otherwise, I think it would have been a skating rink on all slopes. Because it was mid-week, we practically had the place to ourselves. I'm sure if it were a weekend, it would have been a madhouse. We are hoping for more snow in the near future so we can return. The view from the top of the mountain at sunset was so beautiful. Oh, I forgot to mention that it was beautiful blue skies and a perfect 20 degrees. OK, so I'm bragging that we picked, possibly, the best ski day this winter. Anyway, Gunstock is a cute little mountain and was perfect skiing for us intermediates. If I were an expert, the Glades looked tempting. It is only about 1400 vertical drop, but there were plenty of slopes to choose from. Parking and to get in and out of the pick up/drop off was a bit confusing, especially in the dark. Not much signage. Staff were all very helpful in the Lodge and at the ticket booth.
