The temperature was noticeably colder this evening when I left the office than it had been just a short time earlier. The warmer temps of the weekend are clearly falling behind us and snow making weather is back.
I talked with our snow making team today and they are still bullilsh for a Thanksgiving weekend opening for the tubing park and a jib park on Beginner's Luck.
So far we have made snow on the South Slope, Beginner's Luck, lower tubing park and at the top of the Darkside Terrain Park. The rain this weekend definitely didn't help but it was a good first blast of snow to "blow the mice out" (as we like to say) and test the lines. Everything is in working order and ready to go again starting this week for real.
I write this as we are preparing for the Boston Snowsports Expo. It's always fun to talk to our fans who have been dying to get back on skis at Cranmore. I hope you will stop by our booth to say hello. We'll be there Thurs. 11/20 - Sun. 11/23. We'll have show specials on season passes and some ski and stay deals so stop by and maybe you'll save some dough. Oh, and be sure to ask for your free lift ticket valid for Fri. Jan. 9th. We'll be handing out hundreds of these free tickets during the show.
C-more the Penguin will also be at the booth on Sat. & Sun., serving s'mores for the kids.
Free lift tickets and s'mores - what more could you ask for to get in the mood for skiing at Cranmore? Hope to see you there!
