Cranmore Adds Brew Fest and Warren Miller’s “No Turning Back” Film to Annual Homecoming Event


Cranmore Mountain Resort will celebrate the start of the skiing and riding season with annual Homecoming at Zip’s Pub featuring trail sign auction and live
music

On Saturday, November 29, Cranmore Mountain Resort will host their annual Homecoming celebration. The event will feature a local brew fest, trail sign auction, cash bar, live music, and a showing of the latest Warren Miller film, No Turning Back. Proceeds of the trail sign auction will go to the Jimmy Mersereau scholarship fund.

Homecoming will be held at Zip’s Pub and Grille from 3pm to 5pm. The local brew fest, a
new addition to this year’s event, will feature samples from Longtrail, Shed, Shocktop, Tuckermans, Seadog, Gansett, Sam Adams and Angry Orchard, Moat and Blue Moon. Live music from Ryan St. Onge will be provided throughout the festivities.

An informal rail jam will be held from 3-5pm in the base area, directly in front of
the Zip’s Pub, where skiers and riders of all ages can jib terrain park elements set up by Cranmore’s terrain park rangers.

No Turning Back will be shown in the pub at 6:15pm with doors opening at 5:45pm. Tickets for the film are $10 and are available online in advance or at the door. A full bar and limited menu will be
available at Zip’s Pub and Grille during the event.

The newest Warren Miller film pays tribute to the 65 years of mountain culture and filmmaking. No Turning Back showcases scenes of powder from Japan, Mount Olympus, the French Alps, and the hills of Montana. The film features Olympian Ted Ligety shredding the World Cup in Colorado, Ingrid Backstrom and Jess McMillan taking on the Alaskan Chugach, and JT Holmes and Ulie Kestenholz in the Swiss Alps.

Cranmore to Open a Week Earlier Than Planned: November 22 & 23


Cranmore Mountain Resort will open earlier than anticipated for top to bottom skiing and riding on Saturday, November 22 and Sunday, November 23

Cranmore Mountain Resort will open a week earlier than planned based on productive snowmaking weather over the last two weeks. The area will be the first to open in the Mount Washington Valley, offering
top to bottom skiing and riding, with five trails and two lifts operating on Saturday and Sunday, November 22 & 23.

“This is one of the earliest weekends we have opened for skiing and riding,” said Cranmore President and General Manager, Ben Wilcox. “Our continued investment in snowmaking is a major reason why we are able to open top to bottom in November.”

Cranmore has invested $100,000 in snowmaking equipment this season and $1 million since 2010. New tower guns have been added, bringing the total to over 400 energy-efficient snow guns. Cranmore has
increased snow gun inventory by 300 percent since 2010.

The mountain will begin the season by opening top to bottom novice terrain so that skiers and riders of all abilities can enjoy the early season snow. Trails open
will include Easy Street, Gibson, Lower Gibson, Lower Beginner’s Luck and Snow Train. The Skimobile Express High Speed Quad and South Quad will
both run from 9am-4pm.

Cranmore will be offering early season prices
this weekend, with lift tickets priced at $29 for adults, and $19 for teens, juniors and seniors. Children 5 and under ski for free. The resort will reopen on Friday, November 28th, and will operate weekends before going to daily operations on Saturday, December 13th. The Tubing and Mountain Adventure Park are scheduled to open for the season on Friday, November 28th. A full schedule of resort operations can be found online at Cranmore.com.

Snowmaking operations will continue as temperatures allow. For regular updates on snowmaking and snow conditions, visit Cranmore.com.
