Gunstock
Description:

Gunstock, or the Belknap Mountain Recreation Area, as it was originally known, was a product of the Great Depression. With the rampant unemployment of the 1930's the Works Progress Administration was conceived by President Franklin Roosevelt to provide a source of employment for worthwhile state and local projects ranging from flood control with dams, to road construction. During the late 1950's and early 60's, an ambitious expansion program began that saw development of Gunstock Mountain with a summit chair-lift, three t-bars and an entirely new trail complex. It was, however, obvious by the early 1960's that still more expansion was needed to provide the services demanded by the skiing public, so another summit chair-lift was added in 1964. In 1970, the Commission again went to the drafting board and came up with many major projects including the creation of the Pistol Area complex with a new chair lift and four trails, the installation of a modern 75 acre snowmaking system and the erection of a base lodge, now known as the Stockade Lodge. In 1986, Gunstock launched a 10 million-dollar expansion program that has totally revitalized its skiing operations. Included in the three phase project was the replacement of four lifts, a high tech/high capacity snowmaking system, an expanded base complex and major renovations to the trail system. Since that time, Gunstock has made consistent progress keeping up with services and amenities that have kept it in the forefront of New England skiing.
