Outreach Program

Outreach Program 2024 Season 

Gunstock’s Outreach Program is a four-week program coordinated through local schools, home-school groups, and community organizations to offer snowsports recreation opportunities to area elementary, middle, and high school students ages 8 to 19. Students must register with a group to be able to participate in the Outreach Program. Please note that there is not a local program in every community and Gunstock cannot register students outside of a local group.

Be sure to attend the Pass and Rental Fitting Night on December 13th from 5-8 pm!

September Update

Student Registration is open from September 29th and closes November 17th. 

Before continuing, be sure to read the Student & Family Guide.

Recently, Gunstock's Outreach Program was named a finalist for the National Ski Area Association's prestigeous Conversion Cup Challenge Award. Conversion is the process of turning beginner skiers and riders into repeat customers, and ultimately lifelong enthusiasts of the sport.

A Gunstock Guest Testimonial:

Hello There,

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.

 The 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!

 Take Care,


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