February vacation is nearing and conditions are in fine shape for everyone to enjoy their vacation here in North Conway and at Cranmore. Team Snowmageddon has been pumping out snow like crazy. Anytime the web blub temperature has been right where it needs to be, they have been out on the slopes gracing the mountain with manmade powder. Although we can make snow using all of our 365 high efficiency snow guns, it is always nice to have a little help from Mother Nature. There is a storm brewing for Friday and it looks like that is could leave us with a measurable amount of snow. This is simply music to our ears. There is nothing better than a powder day! So to ensure that this snow heads its way to New Hampshire everyone reading this must do their part. Wear you pj’s on backwards and inside out, cross your fingers and toes and pray as much as humanly possible to Ullr the Snow God. With all our combined efforts there is no way this storm will miss us.

And after you’re done skiing and riding all day, we have plenty of events and activities to keep the good times rolling. There will be two Cranpalooza’s throughout February vacation week. We are rolling out the red carpet on Wednesday February 20th, as Cranapalooza will have a Hollywood Theme. Audley Williams and Marcus Gale will on hand with live music entertainment. Then on Saturday the 23rd Cranapalooza will be jammed packed with entertainment. Live music will be performed by The Tugg Brothers, and there will be a family magic show from Magic of the Steelgraves. There will also be a bonus magic show in the Artist Falls Lodge from 4:30-5:30pm. If that isn’t enough for you, there will be fireworks capping off the evening at 6:30pm.
On top of the fun at Cranpalooza, Cranmore’s Tubing Park andMountain Adventure Park will be open until 9pm February 15th-23rd. This is a perfect way to end a ski day or to entertain a member of the family who does not ski or snowboard.
