Before itMoreWinner of the 2011 Skade Award from the International Skiing History Association, The History of Gunstock chronicles the triumphs and defeats of four high-altitude ski jumps and the history of the snowy trails of Gunstock Mountain Resort. Before it became home to generations of skiers, Gunstock began as a Works Progress Administration project during the Great Depression that transformed the small farming community of Gilford into one of central New Hampshires most renowned skiing resorts. Now celebrating its seventy-fifth anniversary, Gunstock has molded the careers of champion skiers and Olympians, including two-time Silver Medalist Penny Pitou, ski icon T. Gary Allen and the ski jumping sensation Torger Tokle. Carol Lee Anderson writes with sensitivity as she pays tribute to those individuals who have worked, skied or played a part in this iconic mountain of the Lakes Region.
