Snow Reporter's Comments

Good Morning!  Today we will be skiing and riding on 22 trails with 5 lifts turning from 8:30am-4pm.  Expect machine groomed and loose granular conditions on 74.14 acres of skiable terrain. 


Today we are looking at a sunny day with a high of 29 degrees.  We have fired up snowmaking and have been making some snow on Skimeister, Kandahar, Middle and more! Look for some new snow on some of our trails that have been open as well, such as the Alley & South Slope. We'll add more guns as temperatures allow to add to our trail count even more for Christmas vacation week. Stay up to date with our snowmaking progress on our Snowmageddon Blog.


The Tubing and Mountain Adventure Park are open today from 9am-9pm.


We are in non-holiday pricing today, $64 for adults, $53 for teens & $40 for juniors and seniors.

Friday, Dcember 19th Update

Snowmaking started up again early this morning at 3:30am on Skimeister and Lower Skimeister.  By 10am temperatures increased above freezing so we had to shut down the system.  At 5pm on Friday, guns started up on Skimeister, Lower Skimeister, Gentoo, Rockhopper, Emperor, the upper North Slope and sections of already opened trails that can use some extra snow cover.  We hope that temperatures allow us to run through day and night until Monday morning.  If this is possible, we should be in good shape to add Skimeister, Lower Skimeister, the Upper North Slope and more beginner terrain for the Christmas Vacation Week.  A storm is forecasted for December 23 and 24 that may bring us some rain.  With this forecast, we will probably hold off from opening Skimeister and the upper North Slope until the day after Christmas.  This means we will add another 16.14 acres of skiing on the 26th which will bring our total acres open to 90.  This equates to approximately 60% of the mountain open. 


With warm temperatures in December, I want to thank the Cranmore Snowmaking Team for getting us this far.  60% of the mountain open by Christmas is a great achievement.


I hope everyone has a great Christmas and I look forward to seeing everyone this next week.


Best Wishes,


Ben Wilcox
