Meister Hut

Summit Meister Hut

Cranmore's Meister Hut is the place to be this summer.  Accessible by a quick scenic chairlift ride to the summit, the Meister Hut features spectacular views of the Moat Mountain and Presidential Mountain Range, plus Gifford's Ice Cream and the Valley's only satellite Tuckerman Brewing Tasting Room.  

As we’re all anxiously awaiting reopening our mountain for summer operations, it’s too early to announce opening dates.   We’re closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and will continue to follow the guidance of public health officials to determine when it’s safe to resume operations.
