Cranmore Mountain located in the heart of the Mount Washington Valley, and is one of the country’s oldest continuously operating ski areas, opening in 1937. Under new ownership since 2010, Cranmore has received over $8.2 million in improvements since then. The resort has undergone a major face lift including a state-of-the-art Arlberg Children’s Learning Center, a new quad chairlift, NH’s first Mountain Coaster, expanded tubing park, additional snowmaking, and new for summer 2011, Cranmore Mountain Adventure Park- the newest family attraction in the White Mountains featuring zip lines and ropes course, summer tubing, giant swing, soaring eagle zipline Mountain Coaster and more.
Every winter, hundreds of thousands of families come to Cranmore to ski and ride on our sunny slopes. We offer 57 trails and glades, 5 terrain parks including a new skier/boarder cross, a state of the art learning center for ski and snowboard lessons, many food and beverage options, a fully-licensed bar, snow tubing park, mountain coaster, giant swing, zipline, and North Conway’s largest fitness facility.

Cranmore’s mascot is C-more the Penguin. C-more came to roost at Cranmore over a decade ago and has been popular with guests ever since. C-more greets guests every Saturday and Sunday and joins kids around the fire for s’mores during Cranapalooza. Sometimes C-more can even be found tubing in the Tubing Park. He loves to have his picture taken with our guests so please say hello and give him a hug if you see him. If you would like to receive a free C-more the Penguin sticker, stop by our Guest Services desk at Cranmore or email us your address and we’ll mail you one!
