Skiing with GM Part 2

The view from the top

On Sunday January 20th we had our second Skiing with the GM event. This event brought out more people than the initial event on December 22nd. With the conditions being superb, Cranmore’s passholders didn’t want to miss the opportunity to get on the lift earlier than usual to take advantage of first tracks. As everyone gathered at the base of the Skimobile Express Quad everyone couldn’t help but look at the freshly groomed packed powder corduroy. At 8:00am everyone loaded on the lift heading for the top. At the top of the mountain General Manager Ben Wilcox gathered everyone to discuss what trails everyone wanted to go down. After deciding everyone carved their way down Skimeister, a fan favorite here at Cranmore. Wilcox made sure that just about every part of the mountain was skied, as well as taking a ride up the new Schneider Triple Chairlift.

Coffee and a Rennie roll

Shortly after 9am the Meister Hut opened its doors to the passholders where inside there were coffee and Rennie rolls awaiting everyone. After everyone got their food and drinks, passholders discussed with Ben Wilcox what is new at Cranmore. After everyone finished their coffee and Rennie roll, everyone departed back out onto the slopes to enjoy the rest of the ski day. There are two more Skiing with The GM events later this season. There is one scheduled for February 10th and March 10th.
