Wine Dinners & Comedy Nights at Cranmore

Not only is Cranmore renown for its skiing, more and more it is known for its variety of activities for all ages. Two recent additions to the Cranmore evening repertoire are the Meister Hut Wine Dinners and Cranmore Comedy Nights.

Meister Hut Wine Dinners

Cranmore Mountain’s Meister Hut Wine Dinners were selected by the editors of New Hampshire Magazine as “Best of NH 2008” for Mountaintop Dinners. Tickets are currently still available for Jan. 9 and Jan. 23 seatings.

The dinners, which will be offered on five nights during Cranmore’s winter operating season in 2009-2010, were launched in 2008 to great acclaim. They feature a four-course menu with wine pairings in the rustic setting of the mountaintop Meister Hut. Guests choose between a selection of five entrees, each accompanied by wine carefully matched to each course. Diners reach the summit via the high-speed express quad. The dinner is open to skiers and non-skiers alike with a welcome reception starting at 6pm each evening.

Limited seating available. Ages 21+ only. Advance reservations may be made by calling 603-356-5544.

This winter the dinners will be offered on the following dates:
January 9, 2010 (seats available)
January 23, 2010 (seats available)
February 6, 2010 (seats available)
February 20, 2010 (3 seats left)

Cranmore Comedy Nights

We bring comedic talent in from Boston and Portland to our stage right here in North Conway for a true comedy club experience in the mountains.

We have two shows planned this year - one on the Friday of Martin Luther King weekend, January 15; and the other on Fri. Feb. 26. Both feature emcee Mike Viselli, who brings along two or three talented comics for a night of raucous laughter.

Tickets are just $12 at the door or $10 in advance if you buy them online (recommended).

So enjoy skiing and riding our slopes during the day, then wind down at our Wine Dinners or Comedy Shows. Cranmore is truly the best choice for all your weekend getaway activities!
