9 inches of Snow!

A tele skier tests the new snow

Your prayers to Ullr, ski dances and odd rituals have paid off as Mother Nature has finally delivered us a bounty of snow. Cranmore has received 9 inches of new snow in the last 48 hours and conditions couldn’t be any better. Powder hounds that were lucky enough to be at Cranmore were in for a treat. Many were rejoicing and grinning from ear to ear.

Snow piling up

Though our snowmakers have been working tremendously hard, it is nice to have Mother Nature chip in whenever she can. Cranmore literally turned into a winter wonderland overnight and just in time for the Holiday week coming up.  With more snow in the forecast this week the skiing and riding this weekend will be the best it’s been all season long.

On top of all the new snow there are plenty of events taking place to keep everything entertained. This Saturday the 22nd is Soaring Eagle Zipline Day. The public is invited to ride the Soaring Eagle Zipline for free from 9am-Noon.  No tickets, wristband or waiver is required.

Also on the 22nd is the Skiing with the GM Event.  Passholders are invited to ski first tracks with Cranmore’s General Manager Ben Wilcox followed by coffee and snacks in the Meister Hut. Meet at the base of the high speed quad at 7:45am and load by 8:00am.

Winter is just hitting its stride here at Cranmore and look for plenty of terrain to open and expand within the next few weeks as we plan to start phase 4 of our snowmaking plan.
Phase 4 of snowmaking starts soon
