Welcome to the brand spankin' new Gunstock Mountain Resort blog! We're excited to bring this new feature to our website and we're really excited to kick off the 2015-16 season (we're counting down the hours)!Last week was Thanksgiving, and we've got a lot to be thankful for here at Gunstock; beautiful views of Lake Winnipesaukee and our neighboring mountains, the ability to spread the love of winter and winter sports to guests from all over, the rich history that we continue to add to with each passing year, and, of course, SNOWMAKING!
Temps finally cooled off last Sunday and our crew was more than ready to get that snow pumping on as much terrain as possible during the wee hours of Monday morning. I arrived around 7am to snap some photos, and I've gotta say, no matter how many times I round that corner on the Access Road, there's only one thing that gives me butterflies in my stomach, and that's Day 1 of Snowmaking. There is something magical about rounding that corner as the mountain reveals itself and seeing those first billowing clouds of white. It's like watching Fall switch over to Winter right before your eyes! I hopped out of the car with the camera ready and my face was instantly cold in the best way possible. I sincerely can't wait for everyone else to feel that.
Projected Opening Day is Friday, December 4th. Everyone make sure to do your preseason exercises, tune up your equipment and do your snow dances for the natural stuff! And until Mother Nature pulls through, we'll be here making it!
