The Countdown Begins!

It's hard to believe that the countdown to opening day has begun! And this being "crunch time," Cranmore has been super busy preparing for the upcoming season, and opening day... December 5th!

Whether they are hiring for the upcoming season, installing snow guns, welding and revamping terrain park elements, or planning this season events and marketing the mountain, it's safe to say EVERYONE here at Cranmore has been plenty busy! It seems that everything is starting to fall into place...now we just need the Snow!


Above, the snow cats (groomers) are arriving back to their winter home and are ready to prowl the mountain.

The snow making crew has had their hands full moving snow guns around the mountain, and installing the 80 brand new snow guns as they arrive to the mountain! Below you'll see snow making pipes ready to be installed on the South Slope.

The Darkside staff has has also been busy painting and making sure all of the park elements are ready for winter shredding (weather depending, Lucky Loop will be open Thanksgiving weekend with some rails and boxes set up for some preseason jibbin!) Check out there newly designed website!

Ghoullog Opens to Rave Reviews!



The Ghoullog opened this weekend and I can personally tell you that it is the scariest yet. I don't want to give away any surprises, but let's just say that the undead have taken over. That's right - zombies now roam the grounds of the Ghoullog.

Lance Davis, head ghoul and leader of Death Becomes You Productions, shares that this year, Zombies are hot. Just ask anyone about Zombieland, the new movie that was #1 in the box office this last weekend.

But that's not all that's new at Ghoullog this year. Be sure to check out the Demented Carnival. "That is sick, that is horrible. That is SO BAD," stated my new marketing coordinator Becca Deschenes. I have to agree. I mean, who would want to hurt little kittens and puppies? But it's all in fun and no animals will be harmed, we promise. But don't go in that vintage Airstream trailer where the carnies hang out. And definitely do NOT talk to that crazy clown guy.

This is the third year of the Ghoullog and we have found that Columbus Day weekend tends to be the busiest. So if you are coming up for leaf peeping (and the leaves are just about at peak as of today) then be sure to reserve your tickets now as Saturday and Sunday nights are sure to sell out.
