Here Comes Christmas Vacation Week!

In just a few days the mountain will come alive with our guests and events for Christmas Vacation Week.  We have tons in store with something for everyone to enjoy.  The mountain has been coming together nicely as we're currently skiing on 20 trails and about 80 acres of skiable terrain.  We have been blowing snow at every oppurtunity and are looking to have 75% of our terrain and 114 skiable acres by the middle of vacation week.  For the condition and grooming report, you can find it here: http://www.cranmore.com/winter/snow-grooming-report

We're looking to get the Otherside up and running and the Darkside Park is also seeing the installation of some elements today and is scheduled to open up tomorrow.  Visit our multimedia page to check out the latest photos and videos at  http://www.cranmore.com/winter/gallery_winter

Now that we've told you about the mountain let's get into what we have going on for you.  Cranmore will have skiing on Christmas Eve and Day from 9am to 4pm.  Vacation week hours are 8:30am to 4pm.  All week long Zip's Pub will be offering apres ski entertainment with some of the valley's favorite musicians!  Be sure to come and check out the free, live enterntainment.

For some on the slopes action, shredders can check out the first park event of the year on December 26th.  The park crew has been working hard all day to get the Darkside ready for you.  Skiers and riders are both welcome so come on out and show us your fresh tricks for the new year!  Remember to look at www.cranmore.com/darkside for all things park at Cranmore. 

Not forgetting about you families in the least.  We will be hosting our first Cranapalooza of the season.  This fairy tale themed party is sponsored by Story Land.  The event will feature appearances from the popular theme park’s Cinderella, Humpty Dumpty and Scarecrow, joined by Cranmore’s own C-More the Penguin.  Kids can cook s’mores around the fire in Schneider Square, get their faces painted and receive a balloon sculpture from Bobo-T-Clown! 
On Dec. 31st, Cranmore will offer families the best New Year’s Eve option in the region with a special circus-themed Cranapalooza. Ring in 2011 with children’s entertainer Marcus Gale.  Families can then rock out together with favorite local musicians, Dennis and Davey.  A special early evening fireworks display is offered at 7:30pm so even the youngest family members can stay up to enjoy the sights. Kids can also enjoy s’mores, face painting and carnival games!

We will be operating the tubing park and mountain coaster for special holiday extended hours from 9am-9pm each day from Sunday, December 26th to Saturday, January 1st.  They will also operate 8:30am to 4pm on Christmas Day and 9am to 4pm January 2nd.  A special Super Slider Ticket is offered on New Year’s Eve (and all Cranapalooza evenings) for only $59 for all ages.  It offers 3 mountain coaster rides, night skiing and 2 hours of tubing (skiing is valid from 2-8pm; and tubing and coaster is valid from 5-9pm). Imagine sliding down the mountain at night under the fireworks – that’s New Year’s Eve, Cranmore style! Other combo tickets are available at special savings and are available for sale online at https://store.cranmore.com/e-commerce/.

Cranmore is the place to be during the holidays.  With family fun and events day and night, all week long, we'll be sure to keep you entertained whether you're on or off the slopes.  Keep up to date with everything that is going on at the mountain via our Cranmore Mountain Fan Page on Facebook or at http://www.cranmore.com/!

I've heard this time it snowed more than it usually does. Mountains was under several feet of snow and skiers were going crazy on this Christmas vacation. I have been to an event myself on Christmas night and had fun all the night skiing.
