Full review

Gunstock opened on Dec 5, but I didn't get a chance to go until today, Dec 9. Trails a very limited this early but it looks like they will be opening more this weekend. I spent a couple of hours skiing this morning, getting in a dozen or so runs. It was snowing hard but quit by noon. There were a couple of inches of loose powder on top of hard packed snow with a couple of icy patches but what can you expect this early. The snow guns are going and they are building a good base of a few more trails. Not many people there, we had the mountain and lifts nearly to ourselves.

It was just good to get out and start workiing those ski muscles after the summer off.
