Gunstock Opening Day Planned for Black Friday 11/29

Take a Trip Up Memory Lane and Win a Ride on the Last First Chair with GM Greg Goddard


Gilford, NH (November 12, 2019) – Gunstock Mountain Resort’s planned opening day is Black Friday, 11/29/19. Season pass holders should stop into the Welcome Center before opening to check their pass and ensure direct-to-lift access without having to wait in any lines.

Take a Trip Up Memory Lane

Gunstock is hosting a raffle to win a ride on the last first chair with the GM. Grand prize (3 awarded) is a ride on the Opening Day First Chair with beloved General Manager, Greg Goddard. Greg is retiring this year, so this will be his final First Chair as the GM. Cost is $1 per ticket. The more tickets you buy the higher chance of winning! Tickets can be purchased in the Welcome Center, or by calling 603.293.4341.

All raffle proceeds benefit Pub Mania and the Greater Lakes Region Children's Auction.

Note: Prize does not include lift ticket. Valid lift ticket or Season Pass must be purchased by winner prior to riding the first chair.
