Pistol Area at Gunstock Mountain Resort
Less than a decade separated from the significant expansion onto Gunstock Mountain, the Belknap County owned recreation area was still looking to grow.|
For the 1970-71 season, a new complex was opened to the east of the Gunstock Mountain trails. In sticking with the gun theme, the complex was called the Pistol. Serviced by a 2,250 foot long by 470 foot vertical Mueller double chairlift, the new complex featured four novice and intermediate trails.
Upon the installation of the summit express quad in 2003, the former Doppelmayr summit triple was moved to the Blundersmoke trail, replacing the double on the Pistol trail.
