Uphill Travel

Uphill travel is now allowed on all trails, but is at your own risk in the off-season. There is no ski patrol on the mountain at this time. For assistance with emergency situations, please dial 9-1-1. 

During Guntock's winter operations, an Uphill Pass must be purchased in order to utilize our designated Uphill Routes. Pricing for 21-22 is being decided shortly. The Uphill Pass is good for the entirety of the winter season and may be purchased at the Welcome Center. You must carry your pass with you when on the mountain. 

Uphill travel is permitted on our three designated Uphill Routes for folks to skin or hike up, and ski/ride/hike down. Uphill Routes will be open when their connecting summit trails are open. Please use extreme caution as there is no Ski Patrol on site, and conditions may vary. Any activity on our trails at this time is entirely at your own risk. Sledding is not allowed. We must also heavily discourage congregating of any sort, including tailgating. We all share a responsibility to ourselves and our community during these uncertain times. Please do your part in flattening the curve of the spread of the COVID-19 virus by keeping a distance of at least 6-8 ft. away from others.
