Scenic Lift Ride FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions


What are Gunstock's COVID guidelines?

  • Gunstock Mountain Resort is currently following all CDC guidelines for guests and staff. While we do not require face coverings on the property or inside any buildings at this time, we do encourage those who feel more comfortable wearing them to do so. If you or anybody in your party is not feeling well, has any COVID-19 symptoms, or has recently tested positive for COVID-19, we encourage you to reschedule your Adventure and visit us on another day.
What is the protocol for riding the chairlift with children?
  • All passengers and/or children must be aware of the lift loading and unloading procedures.
  • Children/passengers must be able to sit and ride the Chairlift independently (free of embrace or human restraint).
  • Children/passengers must sit all the way to the back of the seat (“back to back”); do not lean forward or on the restraint device.
  • Guests will not be permitted access to the chairlifts with a child in a carrier such as a backpack or chest pack. This is for the safety of the child in the unlikely event of a lift evacuation or injury to the adult.
If we need to evacuate the chairlift, what is the procedure?

In the unlikely event of a lift evacuation, each passenger may be required to be lowered from the chairlift using a “T-Seat” from a height upwards of 100’ off the ground.

What are the rules and regulations for riding the chairlift?
  • NO ALCOHOL IS PERMITTED on the chairlift.
  • Pets are NOT permitted to ride the chairlift.
  • NO SMOKING ON CHAIRLIFT, and we ask that you refrain from smoking at the top of the mountain or on hiking trails.
  • NO littering from the Chairlift.
