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.
