    Camera Gunstock 12-2-2017

    Date: 12/2/2017

    Resort: Gunstock, Gilford NH

    Conditions:
    Machine groomed man made

    Report: Yesterday I made it out to the home hill. This is the first year that I will not have done a formal season pass. This year because of the cost of the season pass, I did a flex pass ($25 up front) which cuts the price in half for daily tickets. You load up a RFID card online, and you're good to go at the gates. So it cost me $32. I figure 10 outtings will break even on the season pass or less (which is what I am good for at the G anyway per year)

    Gunstock had 3 lifts running (pistol, ramrod and penny) accessing a chunk of the lower mountain. The RFID gates were kind of a pain in the ass, but for the most part worked. Seemed a big capital expense for such a small hill. Ended up lapping Tiger, Smith and lower gunsmoke. All in all a good first day back at the home hill - and man I missed seeing those lake views!

    Some photos:

    and one look back up Tiger!

    What was the early buy-in price on a season pass this season?

    It was 449.

    Last year, I skied 9 times at Gunstock and paid $429... This year it is $449 ($649 for full price). The half price ticket is $44 - by going 9 times again this year even at full price, I come in ahead at $421 - (9 X $44 = $396 + $25 for the flex pass). Not a bad deal. The main thing was to get into the mug club for a 5 year in a row!

    Gunstock early buy at $449 seems pricey when a peaks ranger pass was $429 and ragged early season was $249

    Indeed. The perks of a great location and a lot more name recognition (because of the location).
