Cranmore Announces What's New for 2017-2018 Season

New Resort Amenities Building – 

Cranmore’s new amenities building will be built in two phases, including a four season outdoor and a future tubing park base lodge. The new facility will be located at the base of Cranmore’s tubing park, next to Cranmore Fitness. The first phase will include the new outdoor, resident pool with a viewing area and changing rooms. The projected completion date for the first portion of the building is December 2017. Pool memberships will be made available   

The second segment of the building will include first level Tubing and Mountain Adventure Park ticket windows, an employee room, public bathrooms and a small private fitness area for Kearsarge Brook residents. The second level will include a restaurant for the tubing park and a large deck. This is projected to be completed in two to three years.   

Kearsarge Brook Condominiums – With construction progressing on schedule this past summer, Kearsarge Brook residents will move into homes in Building One this October. A first floor, slopeside model unit is now open daily for tours. Units in Building One are still available for purchase. For more information on Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore, visit KearsargeBrookNH.com or call the sales office at 603-356-1111.

Unload Zone - Cranmore’s unload zone was renovated this past summer. The newly expanded area includes new paving, drop off parking, sidewalks, decorative and improved lighting, plus landscaping.

Expanded Hours - Cranmore will offer night skiing until 8pm on Saturday nights, plus daily during holiday periods.  Night skiing will be available from the South Quad and will allow access to the North Slope, South Slope, the Alley, Snow Train and Outta Luck. With the newly expanded night skiing hours, Zip’s Pub and Grill will extend its hours as well, serving later into the evening.

Snowmaking - The resort will add 86 new high-efficiency snow guns to the mountain inventory, which were developed by Cranmore owners, Brian and Tyler Fairbank. The guns are called the LPX-Y Gen 3, or “Sledgehammers.”

These snow guns will use 90 percent of water pumping capacity – a typical snow gun would utilize about 50 percent or less. This technology uses 50 percent less air, which means less electricity, is used, and overall, two times the amount of snow is made.

This past summer, crews upgraded Cranmore’s on-mountain piping system, to improve water capacity, which will also allow for more snowmaking, faster and earlier in the season. Weather permitting, snowmaking at Cranmore will begin November 1.
