Cranmore will kick off the 2017-18 season on Thanksgiving weekend, with skiing, riding, tubing and Mountain Adventure Park rides, plus the resort’s annual Homecoming and Brew Fest event, operating Friday through Sunday, November 24th-26th.

Doors open at 6:30pm and the movie will start at 7pm on both Friday and Saturday.  A full bar and limited pub menu will be available.
