Segway Tours with Anthony Gardella


A BLOG from Anthony Gardella
Segway Supervisor and Tour Guide at Cranmore Mountain Resort


      Having been a seasonal employee at Cranmore Mountain in North Conway, New Hampshire for several years now as a snowboard coach, I thought, what job could possibly be better than this? Enter one of Cranmore's newest summer attractions, and the Mount Washington Valleys first- Mountain Segway tours.

When I was asked to lead a team and train guests to ride Segways and show them around, I was into it from the beginning. Now I can spend the winter and summer seasons helping people enjoy the outdoors. There’s nothing like meeting people who have traveled long distances just to visit Cranmore. To see their faces light up with excitement after cruising on a Segway is a very fulfilling experience for me.


I also appreciate the feedback we have received from guests who filled out our survey after their tour. Since this is our first summer offering Segway tours, we have been able to keep our ear on the street and develop a well rounded fun time for all. We are planning a foliage tour for this year, and for next summer we are putting our creative minds to work at developing a longer tour.


So, if you’ve never been on a Segway before, stop by Cranmore Mountain Resort in the heart of the Mount Washington Valley and give it a try.


*If you have never tried a Segway before, and are interested in giving it a shot, grab an E-coupon for this Sunday, August 26th, to test the waters in a 10 minute Segway Demo for only $9. Get your E-coupon here!
 
**Since summer is starting to wrap up, Mountain Segway Tours, as well as all other summer attractions at Cranmore, will operate weekends only starting September 1st through October 8th.
