5 reasons to visit Cranmore this Summer!

The snow has melted and we have turned our focus to summer. If you think we turn the lights out after the lifts stop turning, then you are dead wrong. We keep the fun times rolling all summer long.

1) There is someone for everyone- We understand that not everyone in the family is a daredevil or a scenic view seeker. With ten summer attractions, there is truly something for everyone. From our popular Mountain Coaster to our scenic chairlift rides, no one in the family will be left out.

2) Summer is just as good as Winter if not better- Yes, winter is our true love, but that doesn't mean that we can't love other seasons as well. The Mount Washington Valley turns into a hoping destination in the summer. With the warmer weather you and your family can plan a family vacation exploring the surrounding mountains as well as making a pit stop at Cranmore while on your way to the outlets in North Conway. You’ll be amazed at how much there is to do in the area, that we guarantee that you will be planning another visit by the time you get back home.

3) Take a Segway Tour- Did you know that the Segway was invented in New Hampshire? It was and there is no better place to try out one than Cranmore. Our tour will take you out onto paved roads to get you used to maneuvering. Then we take things off road by going part way up the mountain. The tour is great way to see what the mountain looks like the summer.

4) Arts Jubilee Summer Concert Series- Bring your friends and some lawn chairs and set up at the base of the North Slope and be serenaded by some great music. This is the 31st summer of great concerts, and they take place every Thursday starting July 11th all the way through August 8th.

5) Memories- Spending a day or even an afternoon at Cranmore will create many memories that your family will talk about for years to come!

Be Kind at Cranmore- A Success!

On Sunday, May 19th, Cranmore opened it's doors a week early with free unlimited rides on some of the most popular rides of the Mountain Adventure Park, all in part of of the Valley's Be Kind Festival!  Thousands of people showed up to ride the Mountain Coaster, fly on the Soaring Eagle and take a thrill ride on the Giant Swing.  Team Cranmore (members of Cranmore's Charity and Goodwill Committee) were on site to pass out balloons, greet guests and handout coupons for future visits.  A huge thanks to the Cranmore staff who helped make such a successful event!

Spider Mountain is going up!

Spider Mountain being dropped off
Since the last chair stopped moving this past winter, our summer staff has been working hard to transform Cranmore from a winter wonderland to a summer oasis. Setting up the mountain for summer is no small feat, but our staff is making it happen and there are only a few small pieces left to finish the puzzle. One of the final pieces is the set up of Spider Mountain. Not sure what Spider Mountain is? Think of it like a very tall jungle gym. Kids of all ages love the thrill of climbing to the top and adults say it reminds them of gym class and recess. Come try out Spider Mountain for yourself as well as our other attractions when the summer season begins May 25th...Only TEN days away!

The mountain is being transformed

Our hard working and dedicated summer staff has been getting the mountain ready for the summer season. Over the past two weeks they have built fences, laid down the summer tubing lanes and prepped areas where attractions will be located. Believe it or not our summer season starts two and half weeks from now, and the excitement is building here at the mountain. The days are getting longer and temperatures are rising. If you cannot wait for opening day which is May 25th, you can swing by Cranmore for a sneak peek at what a summer day is like during Kindness Weekend here in North Conway May 19th. Very soon everything throughout the resort will be set up and ready to go. We can’t wait to see you and your family here for opening weekend!

Wooden fences

The bungy trampolines will be in place soon!
