Great Opening Weekend!

Fresh Corduroy on Opening Day

We had a great opening weekend here at Cranmore! After a fantastic Thanksgivings Day weekend or skiing, riding and having fun in the Mountain Adventure Park, there are still plenty of good things to look forward to. Looking forward to a cold, snowy winter is most certainly on the minds of every skier and rider. The weather forecast ahead looks cold which means we will be making snow as much as humanely possible. Currently our snowmakers are blowing the goods on trails such as Easy Street, Gibson, Lower Gibson, Beginner’s Luck, Lucky Pitch, Snow Train, the South Slope and the Beginner Basin Area. Expect to see more trails and lifts open for the weekend of Saturday December 1st.
Attaching Cross Arm

 The new Schneider Triple Chair is also something that skiers and riders should be very anxious for. The Schneider Triple Chair is replacing the old East Chair which had run every winter since the 1950’s; it was definitely out dated. Skiers and riders are going to love the extra 300 feet of vertical that the Schneider Triple Chair will provide as well as being able to access twice as many runs as opposed to what could be accessed on the old rickety East Chair. 

Many of the final touches are being finished, all of the lift towers have recently been installed and the cross arms are being attached.

The Schneider Triple Chair will make its official Cranmore debut in late December.  Don’t miss your opportunity to be one of the first people to take a ride up and stay tuned for its opening date.
