Changes have come faster than expected at Gunstock Mountain, as two managers have left employment effective this month.
According to the Laconia Daily Sun, General Manager Greg Goddard will be leaving employment on January 21. A Gunstock employee since 1981, Goddard had previously announced a retirement effective August 2020. According to the Laconia Daily Sun, Goddard declined to comment.
Meanwhile, Marketing Director Mike Roth has been dismissed. According to the Laconia Daily Sun, he has hired an attorney who is demanding documents from county officials.
Tom Day has been hired as Gunstock's new General Manager, effective this week. Day had previously served as General Manager of Waterville Valley when the ski resort was owned by Booth Creek.
The Belknap County owned and operated resort has come under increased scrutiny, as it ceased making annual payments to the county while still requesting new loans. Despite the public ownership, the resort has the forth highest ticket price in New Hampshire at $96.
Meanwhile, the state legislature is reviewing HB 1107-A, which would direct the Governor to appropriate $890,000 in state funds to rebuild the ski area's parking lot.
