Gunstock NH History Book Includes Ski Jumping Legend Torger Tokle Last year, Gunstock Ski Area in Gilford NH dedicated its jump complex to Torger Tokle, known in the early 1940s as “The Babe Ruth of American Ski Jumping.” He died in action in the Italian Alps during the last days of WWII. The history book introduced below covers the recreational ski area, too, but it’s notable for inclusion of Torger, a legend who considered it “home.” The History of Gunstock: Skiing in the Belknap Mountains 978.1.60949.136.9 { 160 pp, $19.99 } Click cover illustration to enlarge, click again to return to normal size Before it became home to generations of skiers, Gunstock Mountain began as a Works Progress Administration recreation project during the Great Depression that transformed the small farming community of Gilford into one of central New Hampshire’s most renowned skiing resorts. Join local ski historian Carol Anderson as she takes on the triumphs and defeats of four high-altitude jumps and the history of the snowy trails of the Gunstock Mountain Resort. Approaching 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. Anderson pays tribute to those individuals who have worked, skied or played a part in this iconic mountain of the Lakes Region.
