Tom Day had been prepared to offer his resignation ever since a contentious exchange at last month’s meeting of the Gunstock Area Commission.
The now-former president and general manager of New Hampshire’s Gunstock Mountain Resort made good on that possibility Wednesday when he resigned from his position before the commission, immediately followed by the resignation of the resort’s entire upper management staff.
Each member did so by offering the customary two weeks notice. By Thursday morning, however, members of the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department had arrived at the ski area in order to escort the seven, now-former staff members off the property, effectively ending Gunstock’s operations for the immediate future.
“We’ve had an active couple of days here at Gunstock,” Day told New England Ski Journal. “It’s a sad situation, actually.”
