Looking ahead to MLK Weekend


Snowmaking

After enjoying spring like weather this past weekend filled with soft snow, this current January Thaw is coming to an end. Look for temperatures to return to normal starting this evening. Our plan is to fire up the snowguns on Tuesday night. Look for 24 hour a day production from Tuesday night through Friday. With all that snow being pumped out expect trails like North Conway, Triple Shot and Skimeister to open up this weekend. Also the guns will be blowing on open terrain as well. There will be a fresh coating of manmade snow on North Slope, Ledges and Bandit. Not only will snowmaking help us open more trails, it will also help our terrain park crew set up more features in the Double Feature Progression Terrain Park, including an advanced jump section.

All of the new snow made will set us up for a fantastic Martin Luther King Weekend. There will plenty of events happening this weekend on top of great ski conditions. On Friday January 18th Cranmore will be hosting Comedy Night. This 21+ event will showcase the talents of Brian Brinegar, Tom Clark and Christine Hurley. You can purchase tickets online for $12 or $15 at the door. Doors open at 7:30pm and the show will begin at 8:00pm. 





Coming up on Sunday is our 2nd Skiing with the GM event. This event gives passholders a chance to ski first tracks with Cranmore’s general manager Ben Wilcox.  Meet at the base of the Skimobile Express quad at 7:45am and load by 8:00am a full half an hour before the public is allowed to load the lifts. Skiing will be followed with coffee and snacks in the Meister Hut, where passholders will have the opportunity to sit with Wilcox to discuss all things Cranmore.
We look forward to seeing you up here this weekend!
