Cranmore Welcomes New Faces to Year-Round Team

October 20, 2021

NORTH CONWAY, NH—Cranmore Mountain Resort is excited to announce new staffing additions and promotions to their full-time year-round team.

Brand new to the resort is Sara Butterfield, Executive Assistant. Originally from Deerfield, NH, Butterfield is no stranger to the ski industry, having worked at Whitefish Mountain Resort in Montana, as well as serving as a ski instructor, raft guide and zip line guide in different vacation destinations across the country. Butterfield comes to the resort from Northern Human Services in North Conway. She holds a degree in Business Administration.

Mary Ann Sanguinet is Cranmore’s new Accounting & Payroll Specialist. Sanguinet is a veteran of the resort, having worked in the Snowsports department for several seasons. Upon moving to the area 13 years ago, Sanguinet learned to ski and fell in love with the White Mountains.  She holds a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from UMASS Dartmouth.

Meghan Kelsey will be stepping in as the new Assistant Snowsport Director, a brand-new position at Cranmore. Kelsey comes from Aspen Snowmass and has taught skiing at a number of resorts on the East Coast as well as in Colorado and Perisher Resort in Australia. Kelsey holds a Bachelor’s in Political Science from Hartwick College and a Master’s in Teaching from the University of Vermont.

Long time Cranmore ski patroller Alan Tate was recently promoted to Ski Patrol Director over the summer. An active member of the Cranmore Ski Patrol since 1999, Tate brings with him over 30 years of experience, most recently acting as Cranmore’s Lead Patroller for the past four years. More recently, he served as the Echo Lake & Cathedral Ledge State Park Manager.

Cranmore’s Facilities Manager, and longtime Cranmore employee Mark Gorveatt, was also recently promoted to Properties & Facilities Manager.


Cranmore Mountain, located in North Conway in the White Mountains of New Hampshire just 2.5 hours from the Boston area, is a 4-season family resort known for its ski school, sunny, south-facing slopes, and a festive atmosphere geared for skiers and non-skiers alike. In addition to terrain for all levels, the resort features activities such as NH’s #1 Snow Tubing Park, a year-round Mountain Adventure Park, and downhill mountain bike park.

Cranmore is engaged in a $50 million base area redevelopment plan that includes many improvements, including Kearsarge Brook Condominiums, offering 2 and 3-bedroom units as well as many amenities that are transforming Cranmore into a leading, full-service resort.
