Skiing with the General Manager

Skiers waiting to load the Skimobile Express

On Saturday December 22nd Cranmore had its first Skiing with the GM event. President and General Manager Ben Wilcox met and skied first tracks with season passholders.  Plenty of people showed up anxious to ski first tracks. Passholders gathered at the base of The Skimobile Express Quad at 7:45 am and we departed for the mountain at 8am, a full half an hour before the general public is allowed to ski and ride.

At the top of  Cranmore Mountain Ben Wilcox began to fill everyone in on what is new at Cranmore Mountain Resort, many of the skiers faces lit up with the excitement of hearing about the recent investments that have been made over the past year, including new snowmaking equipment and of course the Schneider Triple Chairlift. The first run of the day was Schneider to Artist Falls with a stop to admire the new Schneider Triple Chairlift. As everyone gazed at the new lift line Wilcox explained the process of which the lift was created.

After taking three runs all over the mountain, we took a step inside the Meister Hut where coffee and snacks were awaiting us. Everyone relaxed and gathered around to chat with Wilcox about all things skiing. It was a fantastic morning and a great way to start off our Skiing with the GM events. There are three more Skiing with the GM events and they are taking place on January 20th, February 10th and March 10th.
