FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MEDIA CONTACT: Rebecca Deschenes
Media@Cranmore.com

NORTH CONWAY, NH – Knockerball North Conway will be making its Cranmore debut this July on Tuesdays and Fridays throughout the summer. The “Grand Opening” will be part of Cranmore’s Americana Celebration on Tuesday, July 4th.

Organized “KnockerSoccer” games will take place in an 80ft by 40ft inflatable arena at the base of Cranmore’s North Slope. Open to guests 48” and up, 3 rounds of 4 minute games are played with up to 30 players during each time slot. Games start every half hour starting at 10am until 4:30pm. A variety of organized games can be played based on the number, size and age of participants.

A Knockerball is an inflatable ball with inner handles and adjustable shoulder straps, which is worn like a backpack. The ball is designed with multiple sheets of a higher grade durable TPU plastic and tension cups and cords, which allows participants to knock each other around without feeling trauma from the blow. Knockerball or “bubble soccer” has been gaining traction in Europe, Australia, Japan and elsewhere.


“We introduced KnockerBall to the Mount Washington Valley last summer and have seen a huge increase in popularity of the game.” said Matthew Milliken of KnockerBall, North Conway. “We guarantee a great time, and games normally break down into absolute laughter- it’s hysterical to watch and play.” he continued.

“We continue to seek ways to enhance our summer events and are excited to offer this unique and fun game as an ongoing piece of our events calendar.” said Cranmore President and GM, Ben Wilcox.

KnockerBall is valid with the purchase of a $13 Cranmore single ride ticket, or $65 6-pack of transferable tickets. A $10 upgrade can be purchased as an add-on to a Mountain Adventure Park, Aerial Adventure Park, Combo ticket or Summer Season Pass. Tickets can be purchased at Cranmore’s Ticket Office. Games are supervised and monitored at all times by trained staff to ensure safety of participants. Closed toed shoes are required. Games may be suspended due to heavy rain, high winds and thunder and lightning. For more information, visit http://www.knockerballnorthconway.com/.

Cranmore Mountain Resort Now Accepting Contracts for Kearsarge Brook Condominiums

With All Approvals in Place and Long-Term Funding Secured, Cranmore Moves Forward with Multi-year Master Plan

On Wednesday, December 23, Cranmore Mountain Resort, located in North Conway, NH, announced that sales for its greatly anticipated Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore development would recommence on December 26, 2015. Sales for residences in building one will start now that all necessary permits and approvals are in place.

This greatly anticipated project is being funded by Belmont Capital of Cambridge Massachusetts; an affiliate of Joe O’Donnell’s who, with Brian and Tyler Fairbank, owns Cranmore Mountain Resort, along with Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in Massachusetts. O’Donnell also owns Bromley Mountain Resort in Vermont, managed by The Fairbank Group, a management company owned by the Fairbanks. Belmont Capital is a proven lender that realizes Cranmore’s future. “It’s an honor to lead a resort with such rich history into the future,” commented O’Donnell. “With its Kearsarge Brook project, Cranmore will be one of the first resorts in Maine or New Hampshire to construct a progressive mountain-living community in the heart of one of America’s most recognized ski towns. After decades of successful resort development and business ventures with the Fairbanks, I have every confidence that the Cranmore project will be well planned, well financed and wildly successful.”

Phase one of the Cranmore Master Plan calls for two strictly residential condominium buildings to be built in two stages. The first building will consist of 18 residences and the second will be a 19-residence building, all conveniently located at the base of Cranmore’s South Slope for easy ski-in, ski-out access and proximity to spring, summer and fall activities and attractions. Residences will include two- and three-bedrooms and range from approximately 1,300 to 1,800 square feet.

“A year and a half ago we had to freeze the Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore project based on land release issues and some permitting delays,” commented Brian Fairbank, Chairman of The Fairbank Group. “Recently we were able to resolve all outstanding issues and utilize our long-standing relationship with Belmont Capital to restart the condominium development.”

Badger Realty, the official real estate broker of Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore, will commence sales on Monday, December 26, 2015. Eighteen units in building one will be the first offered for sale. Cranmore already has signed reservations for approximately 1/3 of the residences but there are still residences available in building one. Since the development is now registered with the NH Attorney General’s Office, buyers will be signing purchase and sale agreements and making a deposit to reserve units.

“Offering base area condominiums to our guests is unique for our region,” commented Cranmore President and GM Ben Wilcox. “Mixing new ski facilities with condominiums has been a successful model at resorts like Jiminy Peak in Massachusetts; Stratton Mountain in Vermont; and Mount Tremblant in Canada.”

Construction could begin as early as spring, 2016 if purchase and sales contracts for 14 of 18 residences can be secured by March 1, 2016. If the required number of contracts is met by March 1, 2016, building one is expected to be completed by January, 2017. Completion dates are subject to change based on achieving the purchase and sale agreement quota. Glen Builders, based in Bartlett, NH is the selected contractor for the project.

Building one and two are part of a multi-year Cranmore Master Development Plan that will eventually add a total of 106 new residential condominium residences to the base of Cranmore. Residences in buildings three, four, five and six will sit above new planned ski facilities.

The Cranmore Master Development Plan will include a total of six new buildings that will eventually replace all of Cranmore’s existing facilities with the exception of the Cranmore Ticket Office building, renovated in 2010, the historic summit Meister Hut, and the Artist Falls Lodge, home to Cranmore Fitness. New ski facilities will include a restaurant, cafeteria, seating, locker rooms, restrooms, changing areas, rental shop, ski retail shop, snow sports instruction registration and other skier service areas. Two-, three- and four-bedroom condominiums will be built on the second and third floors of buildings three, four, five and six.

The Cranmore Master Development Plan is a continuation of resort improvements that started in 2010. In June 2010, the Fairbanks and O’Donnell purchased the resort and, since that date, have invested $10 million in improvements.

Lift improvements since 2010 include the installation of a Doppelmayr eco-Drive fixed-grip quad chairlift, a relocated double chairlift with increased teaching ski terrain, a new triple chairlift on the east side of the mountain and new 380’ carpet lift in the new tubing park.

Facility upgrades include remodeling an older overflow base lodge into a state-of-the-art children’s center. The Arlberg Children’s Center is home to KidsRule, Cranmore’s all day instructional program for children age 3 to 14. The facility also has a children’s rental shop and play room for infants to age 5.

Cranmore’s Ticket Office received a complete redesign with bark siding and post and beam exterior which resembles future buildings to be constructed during the Master Plan.

Cranmore’s Fitness Center went through a renovation that included new weight and cardio rooms and new equipment for its membership. The facility was also remodeled to offer ticket sales and lodge space for winter tubers and those looking to ride many of Cranmore’s new year-round attractions. Energy efficient lighting replaced traditional lighting throughout the facility.

Cranmore has made $1.5 million in snowmaking improvements including over 250 tower snow guns, replaced and expanded snowmaking pipe, and an enhanced snowmaking plant which has helped increase the mountain’s snowmaking output.

Year-round mountain attractions were added including the Mountain Coaster, Giant Swing, and Soaring Eagle Zip Line. These attractions operate in summer along with an Aerial Adventure Ropes Course, summer tubing and a number of other family friendly offerings. In winter, a new 10 lane tubing park was added to go along with the other year-round attractions.

“The proposed Cranmore Master Development Plan is the next chapter of improvements that will put Cranmore on the map as one of New England’s quintessential resorts,” comments Tyler Fairbank, CEO of The Fairbank Group. “Cranmore has become a year-round destination that will continue to infuse dollars into the Mount Washington Valley’s local economy.”

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.

Cranmore Mountain, located in the heart of North Conway Village in the White Mountains of New Hampshire only 2.5 hours from the Boston area, has been entertaining families with fun and festive activities for over 76 years.  With over $9 million dollars in improvements in the last four years, Cranmore is on the brink of a $50 million resort wide development plan, Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore.

 

Bid on a Historic Cranmore Skimobile

Some lucky person in Mt. Washington Valley will win a genuine Cranmore Skimobile when the silent auction is completed on June 13 by the Damon O’Neal Scholarship Fund. Can you imagine this green antique gracing your yard or business front? It’s a little bit of history and can be bid on now by going to the Cranmore Mt Resort website (www.cranmore.com)   and clicking on “events” and then “events calendar,” and following the instructions.

The auction of Skimobile number 129 is part of the Damon O’Neal Scholarship

“Traditions Celebration” at Zip’s Pub beginning at 4pm on June 13, 2014. Additional vintage ski paraphernalia will be available in silent auction during the evening along with hearty hors d’ouevres, cash bar, famous ski champions, autographs by author Tom Eastman, scholarship recipients and a joyous celebration. The Damon O’Neal Scholarship is awarded annually to an outstanding Kennett High School student/athlete who qualifies for the rigorous standards that Damon represented before his fatal ski accident in 1959 while competing at the Jr. Nationals. Previous scholarship recipients have included Michael Larson of UConn, Amber McPherson at Colby Sawyer, Jake Van Deursen off to Colby College and Torin LaLiberte at St. Michaels in VT.  Scholarship officials are quick to point out that fundraising for this annual $2.500 award will continue, however this is the final social event at Cranmore having completed five social fundraisers since the scholarship was created 5 years ago.

It was Harvey Gibson himself who coined the term Skimobile when he first saw the design according to Cranmore historian Tom Eastman. The Skimobile was put in service at Cranmore in 1939, the same year the skiing legend Hannes Schneider was released by the Nazis’s in order to leave Austria, move to North Conway and head up the famous ski school. The lucky winner of the Scholarship Skimobile will be securing a piece of local ski history to enjoy for generations.
