Gunstock Outreach Program

Welcome to the 2023/24 Outreach Program!

Outreach Registration is now closed. 

Participants: Please be sure to attend the Pass and Rental Fitting night on December 13th from 5-8 p.m. at the Gunstock Ticket Office. 

If you have questions about what happens next, please consult the Student & Family Guide or contact your local coordinator.  

We are very happy to be part of the snowsports experience for over 3,400 Outreach participants in 60 local programs. We love watching Outreach participants learn, test out new skills, and have fun sliding on the mountain with friends old and new.


From a Gunstock guest:

I just wanted to reach out and share some positive feedback regarding our family’s experience with Gunstock this year.

Our children got into skiing through your outreach program through our local public school here. This winter we took advantage of the half-off passes that family members could utilize for the night skiing program. I took my son up one evening and stayed until closing. This was my first time skiing again in 19 years, and we had an absolute blast! Over February vacation we then loaded up the whole family and went up there a couple times to take advantage of the additional passes that were included in the outreach program. We had a wonderful time, and now our family is making plans to integrate skiing into our winter activities and budget planning for next year.

TThe staff there have all been courteous and pleasant to work with. We are very fortunate to have a family-friendly ski hill so close to home.

Looking forward to more time with the family on the slopes next year!                                                                                                                                       --W.S.
