Scenic Lift Rides
Take a scenic lift ride to the summit of Gunstock on the Panorama Chairlift. Enjoy a leisurely 15-minute ride to the summit where you will disembark to marvel at the beautiful views of Lake Winnipesaukee, Mount Washington and the Belknap, Ossipee, Squam and Presidential mountain ranges. Take the opportunity to explore the designated hiking trails at the top of the mountain, or bring your picnic lunch. The chairlift will be ready to take you back to the base area where you can continue your adventures.
The lift will operate on weekends only from Mid-May through early June, then daily through the summer months until Labor Day, and weekends only from Labor Day through late October. The first chair ride to the summit is at 10AM. Last chair ride to the summit is at 3PM when we are operating a weekends only schedule and at 4PM when we have daily operations. Guests at the top of the mountain will need to depart at 3:45 during weekend only operations and at 4:45 during daily operations. Please check the hours of operations for the schedule by date.
