Community

Since its conception in the 1930s as a Works Progress Administration project, Gunstock Mountain Resort has always had deep roots in the community. More than 80 years later, we are still a group of people who are stoked for new adventures and driven to light that fire in others. 

Meet President and General Manager of Gunstock Mountain Resort: Tom Day.

Tom has been the President and General Manager of Gunstock since January 2020. You will often see Tom around the resort checking in on guests and making sure they are having a good time. He has been known to skin up the mountain to check in on things before the lifts open. If you see him running or skiing the cross country trails early in the morning be sure to wave hello. 

Tom started his career in the New Hampshire ski industry in 1978 as a lift attendant at Waterville Valley. He worked his way up to director of mountain operations before being named Vice President and General Manager in 1997.
