Outreach and Home School Programs
Over 40 years ago Gunstock developed an Outreach Program to offer children the opportunity to ski or snowboard at discounted rates, while providing a safe and social learning environment. Today, our Outreach Program has expanded to offer thousands of youths in New England area schools, recreation departments and challenged organizations the opportunity to participate in the sports of skiing, snowboarding, or cross country skiing, both educationally and recreationally, still at a discounted rate. We have also added a program for home schooled children that offers them the same discounts. Our program consists of a weekly full day ticket or evening ticket. A one hour group lesson is provided with free skiing/riding to follow. This educational program is offered to groups of twenty or more. A full rental program is available at discounted rates as well. For more details contact the Ski Learning Center Outreach Program Coordinator at 603-737-4322 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gunstock is proud to work with 60 different schools and organizations offering lessons to over 3,000 students each season. We rely on our relationship with the school or organization coordinator to manage these programs and their costs. If you have any specific questions about your child’s program, please contact your group’s coordinator. Below you will find links to a Frequently Asked Questions sheet and some forms that you made need.

HOME SCHOOL OUTREACH PROGRAM
The Gunstock Mountain Resort Learning Center is pleased to offer a Ski, Ride, or Cross Country Ski program just for Home Schoolers. The Outreach Ski & Ride program provides an opportunity for students grades 1-12, ages 6-18, to enjoy 5 visits which include a 1 hour group lesson and multiple hours of free skiing and riding for all abilities. This program is being organized and coordinated by Gunstock staff to provide Home School parents with an organized recreational experience.
