    Very interesting. I would assume it would be a tempting asset to many potential buyers.

    While Gunstock is closer to my house than Cannon. It is only 20 minutes closer and once I get off 93 it is a crap shoot on the speed you could travel. Cannon is worth the extra 20 minutes. It is 15 minutes further than Ragged and I would rather ski at Ragged as well.

    For those in the North Shore MA, Seacoast NH and ME coast up to Wells/Kennebunk, Gunstock is the closest place to get 1,200-1,400 feet vertical (unless I'm missing somewhere not named Shawnee in Maine that would be closer to coastal ME). I would also imagine that being by the lake is a plus. It could serve as a draw/reminder for those who like traveling to Winnipesaukee in the summer, but aren't die-hard skiers, to make a trip on the weekend. I haven't been to Ragged in 15 years (and Gunstock in 12), but the crowds at Gunstock used to be much larger than those at Ragged as I recall.

    Not disagreeing with your assessment on the terrain at all.

    Ski season is always too short
