Scenic Lift Rides

Gunstock is now open weekends for summer adventures!

Enjoy a leisurely 15-minute ride to the summit where you will disembark to marvel at beautiful views of Lake Winnipesaukee, Mount Washington and the Belknap, Ossipee, Squam and Presidential mountain ranges. Explore our hiking trails from the top of the mountain, or bring a picnic lunch! The chairlift will be ready to take you back to the base area where you can continue your adventures.

We also offer One-Way Scenic Lift Ride tickets for those who would prefer to hike up and ride down, or ride up and hike down. Simply stop by the Welcome Center to grab your ticket before you set out!
