Gunstock will be saying goodbye to its 2020-2021 ski season with a weekend long party for the whole family featuring music, costumes, an Easter egg hunt, and much more.

The winter season will officially end on April 4 with a weekend of events and activities for people of all ages.

A year ago, the mountain scheduled its closing party as usual, but with the onset of the pandemic the party was canceled and the season ended a few weeks earlier than expected.

The mountain opened back up for the 2020-2021 season on Dec. 11, with provisions for social distancing including tickets only available online, reservations required for a number of areas, regular cleaning, closing the locker rooms, and many other details. This winter saw a lot of snow and favorable temperatures, resulting in busy slopes all winter.

As spring begins and the season draws to a close, this year the party is back on with provisions for social distancing.

An outdoor restaurant will be set up on Saturday with the Boston-based band Sweep the Leg playing from noon-4 p.m. Reservations are recommended for the patio area and can be made through the Resy app. Walk-ins will be accepted depending on availability.

The last day of the season falls right on Easter Sunday. That morning ski patrol will be hiding eggs on the trail and kids can take part in an Easter egg hunt as they ride down the mountain. Anyone who finds the Golden Egg will receive a youth pass for the 2021-2022 season.

Anyone playing on the mountain that day is encouraged to wear their favorite costume. Staff members in blue jackets will be out with some special treats.
