After the snow had fallen, a week of sunny skies and comfortable temperatures ensued. The masses hit the slopes for remainder of Christmas vacation week and it was great to see the mountain come alive. Friends and families alike enjoyed all that Cranmore had to offer. New trails opened daily thanks to our snowmakers, groomers, and patrollers. It was great to see the skiers get to enjoy a variety of terrain as ropes dropped on new trails everyday. Cranmore wasn't only just the place to be during the day. We kept our guest entertained into the night as well. For adults we held awesome apres entertainment in Zip's Pub. For the younger crowds we had a special Wednesday edition of night skiing and Cranapalooza. Not to be outdone we hosted another round of Cranapalooza and night skiing on New Year's Eve that was complimented by a wonderful fireworks show! The mountain coaster and tubing park also saw special holiday hours with our guests enjoying each until 9pm each night. Thanks to all who came out and joined us during the holiday season. We hope to see you out there again soon!
The New Year started off hot, literally. It was time to strip the layers off when temperatures hit 50 degrees on New Year's Day. I enjoyed the slopes in just a sweatshirt, others were more bold and busted out the t-shirts. This was the way to end a vacation week with some of the best conditions of the year. After this January heat wave, temperatures dropped to more seasonal levels and the hard-working snowmakers began at it again. They've been blowing snow on the mountain ever since and have increased our acreage from the 90's during vacation week to 120 now. We'll be keeping at it until the mountain is at 100% capacity. We also have some big plans in store for the coming Martin Luther King weekend. We're at 35 trails now and are looking to open up even more to make it another great weekend at the mountain. The Darkside and Otherside parks are seeing a complete makeover with builds going on from today until Thursday. With all these great plans in place, Mother Nature may lend some cooperation and drop some fresh on us Wednesday. This would top it off for us and for you when you come out and hit slopes! Remember to stay connected with us on our Facebook Fan Page and at our Cranmore Mountain Website.
