Gunstock Terrain Parks

Blundersmoke

Blundersmoke Park is Gunstock's "signature park." This park contains small, medium, and a few large features. We consider Blundersmoke to be a place for all levels, in which anyone from first time park riders to the most experienced rippers can enjoy the flow of the park. Blundersmoke contains the most variety of all Gunstock Parks and is the largest night park in New England!

Pistol 

Pistol is considered to be our medium/large terrain park, and is geared towards more experienced park riders. The Pistol trail boasts a great fall line and enables intermediate to advanced freestylers to pick up some speed and achieve more air on their way through. This is a place for experienced riders to take their tricks to the next level, and step it up on larger steel and snow features.

Out of Sight

Out of Sight is Gunstock Parks' "snow cross" trail. This will be a place for everyone from an entry level rider to the most experienced rider to lay down some fast, winding laps, and enjoy some banked turns and rollers. If you're looking for a "park experience," but would rather keep your skis or board closer to the ground, this is the trail for you!

Side Arm

Side Arm "progression park" contains extra small and small features. Side Arm is a favorite place for all levels of riders who would like to take their terrain based learning further by experimenting with beginner-friendly elements like small boxes and simple snow features. All features in Side Arm Park are friendly to the whole of Gunstock's community, even those who don't consider themselves to be "park riders."

Parallax Glades

Parallax is an au naturale, gladed park with a combination of natural snow features and manmade wooden features using trees from the glade. This trail is best used by intermediate to advanced skiers and riders, who want to take a refreshing run through the woods, but have the skill level to maintain control while riding through the trees. Hit the elements on the way down to add some swag to your tree run!

Freestyle Features for All Levels

Freestyle features are available on all runs stemming from the Pistol lift, in addition to traditional alpine terrain.

Why? Because we believe that great things happen when worlds collide. 

Gunstock Parks, in addition to groomed traditional skiing and snowboarding terrain, will provide freestyle features for all levels. Did you learn about movement on variations like berms and banked turns as a beginner on our Terrain Based Learning area? Head over to Gunstock Parks and try some slightly larger versions of those same elements on Out of Sight's banked turns and Side Arm's Progression Park! Are you pretty well acquainted with easier park features and want to step it up a bit? Head to Blundersmoke Terrain Park and try out their wide variety of elements, which get changed up on a regular basis to keep things fresh and fun! For experts wanting to go big, enjoy Blundersmoke's features as you warm up, then fly high on the Pistol trail's huge new jump line!
