Fantastic Vacation Week

Skiing on New Year's Eve

After a fantastic vacation week the skiing and riding at Cranmore is the best it has been in recent memory.  We are close to being 100% open. We currently have 48 of our 57 trails and glades open and many of the trails that are currently closed should be open soon as we are in our final phase of snowmaking. We just recently opened The Reel terrain park; we now have 3 out of 5 terrain parks open. Look for the last two including the only skier/boarder cross in the state of New Hampshire to start being built within the next week. 

A line up of Hybrid Cars
As we get into the swing of the season, many of our events are beginning to happen. On January 12th is our Biodiesel Day. This is a great event for anyone who owns a hybrid vehicle. The driver of the hybrid vehicle will receive a free lift ticket for the day as well as a VIP parking spot close to the base lodge. Cranmore made headlines in 2003 when it became the first ski area east of the Mississippi to run its grooming equipment and other diesel vehicles on the then-innovative alternative fuel that few others were utilizing.

Also on January 12th is our 75th Anniversary Gala. Join us for cocktails, dinner and dancing to a swing band at the Red Jacket Resort in North Conway. Dress in vintage 1930’s garb, ski attire, or your finest evening attire.

The Red Jacket Resort
Tickets are $99 per person. Tickets include a cocktail hour with appetizers and a cash bar sponsored by the Red Jacket and music from the Alpiner Oom-Pah Band; and 3-course Austrian-themed dinner with a celebratory glass of wine. Evening includes live music and dancing with the Chris Humphrey Big Band. A portion of proceeds benefit the Herbert Schneider Memorial Fund.
Guests will receive a goodie bag including a commemorative engraved wine glass, a 75th anniversary poster, pin and a copy of Tom Eastman's new book, "The History of Cranmore Mountain" (one book per couple).

With a good stretch of weather ahead there is no better time to come up to Cranmore than now.
