Default Gunstock Ski Passes- Belknap Residents ?

I just called Gunstock Mtn resort, to ask about mid-week ski passes for Belknap Residents, and they said they are not offering this season ?
When did they stop this program ?

Either the person I spoke to (a young kid by his voice), didn't know or just offered a answer ?

I checked their website but cannot find any mention of this program ?
Does anyone know if this program will be offered this season ?

Thanks !

The Gunstock website says age 60-69 can get a mid-week season pass for $199.

For about $125/month you can join the nearby www.gilfordhills.com and play tennis plus go to a zumba class, just to check out the zumba instructor or something.

So's when the weather is no good for hitting the slopes, is good time to be hitting the tennis ball. Tennis and skiing, skiing and tennis, tennis and skiing, skiing and tennis ..... live free or die! ...... certain amount of synergy there ..... tennis and skiing .... don't you think?

Try this link. Midweek is $199, like FLL said, but it also looks like a Golden Pass for the season is only $25 for the season. Here's a link

The Prime Seasons Pass for those over 60 and under 70 was $299.00 if bought earlier this year. Valid all days, including weekends, and no black out dates. That is a deal that is tough to beat.

If you are 70 or over, a Prime Pass is only $25.00. In prior years, this type of pass was limited to residents of Belknap County. Not any more.

Arggggggg !!!!!

So no more mid-week Belknap passes for $25, guess too many folks were showing up and cutting into the sales.....

Regarding the mid-week Golden pass, I'm slightly under the 70 yr old requirement, but not rushing time !

Phantom, I had originally posted to incorrect Forum, b/c I didn't know there was a Thread setup just for 'Winter Sports'. Next time will look before I leap !

How much did the no longer available Belknap County resident ski special cost, what days did it include, and when was it discontinued?

After Nov 30, the senior value pass at Waterville Valley(age 65-79) costs $525, and Gunstock seems like a lot friendlier place than Waterville. You can go skiing at WV midweek for five hours, and basically never say one word to another person, what with the very empty high speed, detachable, 4-seater quad lifts. They should advertise that!

What really matters to me is how much at Gunstock for a double cheeseburger totally loaded with everything?

Default Gunstock Senior Pass

Never ending story with Gunstock never consistent through the years. That is why the Gunstock commission are receiving a lot of flax lately.

Last year the 65-70 pass was just $149, no blackouts. The prior year was the same price but you cannot use it during vacation and holiday periods.

This year the senior M-F pass is $199 and for 60-70. You don't need to be a Belknap resident.

Use to be at 65, Belknap residents gets a free life time pass. My elderly relatives all have grandfathered life time pass. There is confusion this year as they were told they would have to pay $25 @ year for the new pass with IR chip.

Sugarbush in VT, one heck of a mountain compared to Gunrock, senior M-F pass is only $139, no blackouts. Makes me wonder if Gunstock trying to justify the new coaster which I was told was bleeding money from the start.

I started skiing Cannon weekdays last year. NH residents over 65 can ski Monday - Friday for free! To avoid the ticket lines, I bought the year round NH Parks pass for $40. A done deal!

Outdoorsman -- perhaps I am misreading into your post, but my initial reaction is that it was a waste of bandwidth and an unnecessary & misplaced shot at me!

My intent "so ya know" .......... was to HELP Bigdog with a function provided in the Forum software which he may not have been aware of ......... called Edit/Delete ..... he indicated that he realized that he mistakenly placed the first post in the wrong category. I was simply pointing out for him that in the future he has a capability to resolve that himself .............. something you may want to consider with the post above !

Actually you can't delete a post that starts a thread. You can edit the content, but not delete it entirely.

And you can't edit the title of a thread that you started. However if you have that embarrassing typo in the thread title Don may come to the rescue.

If you are a NH resident with a few wrinkles, just go here
Cannon has made some really great changes to the snowmaking the last few years and offers the best skiing in the State bar none!
...but ssssh, keep this kinda secret
The attached photo was taken before the recent snowmaking improvements on a trail with no snowmaking...

Default Canon skiing

Last week and just yesterday at Cannon, only Upper Cannon and Tramway trails were open from the top. Conditions were surprisingly good. :-)
