After a 39-year career at Gunstock Mountain Resort, the last 21 serving as general manager, Greg Goddard has announced he will be retiring from the resort in August 2020. Under Goddard’s leadership, the net worth of the resort has increased by more than $9 million. Through out his career, Goddard initiated substantial projects, including the negotiating the purchase of the Alpine Ridge property, adjacent to Gunstock Mountain Resort, in 1999; shepherding the resort through a major $3.8 million expansion in 2003; leading the transition of the resort into a major four-seasons attraction by installing some of the nation’s longest and fastest zip lines and New England’s largest aerial tree obstacle course, beginning in 2011; and installing a $2.8 million mountain coaster in 2016. Goddard has no immediate plans after retiring, but intends to remain active in the community. He is currently a commissioner for the Lakes Business Park in Laconia, sits on the Loan Review Committee for the Belknap Economic Development Council, and is active in a variety of tourism related organizations.
