This Is The Year: Beginner's Guide Part II

If you're taking up skiing or snowboarding for 2017, congratulations! You're making a positive decision that both your mind and body will thank you for. If you haven't figured out a good New Year's Resolution, learning a snow sport will be the best one you'll ever make, because not only will it be healthy for you, but this will be a resolution you won't want to break, because it's FUN!

January is Learn a Snow Sport month, and Gunstock is participating in the Ski NH Learn a Snow Sport promotion by offering our award-winning 1-Day Mountain Magic Program for just $39! 

Your first ever day of skiing and snowboarding will most likely be both mentally and physically tiring, and that's okay! Learning something new requires concentration and determination, and learning to move in a new way is no exception. Understand that much like life, it's ok to fall sometimes, it's just a matter of getting up and trying again. Our instructors will actually show you how to fall safely, and the best ways of getting up, so you don't feel as awkward. And, unlike your buddies or your significant other, they won't bring you straight to the top of the mountain, but will rather keep you on laidback terrain you're comfortable with until you're ready to advance to the next level.
 Don't have the necessary equipment? No problem, we offer equipment rentals here at the mountain, and our on-mountain ski shop, Mountainside Outfitters, offers seasonal equipment leases.

Don't have the time? You Do! There are lessons both during the day and at night!

Worried it's expensive? Buy lift tickets online in advance and save up to 49%, look into our Flex Pass (which gets you 50% off every time you come to the mountain with no blackouts), and take advantage of our night deals! --Wednesday and Saturday nights include complimentary rentals and 2 Tubing runs!

Now that you're out of excuses, it's time to get out of hibernation and make that confident leap into your new favorite winter activity! Our instructors can't wait to share their passion for skiing and snowboarding with you, and will be just as excited to see you progress as you are!

Carpe Diem!
