Mountain Meisters Pay2Play Supports the White Mountain Trail Collective
January 31, 2020
North Conway, NH - On Thursday, January 30th, Cranmore Mountain’s Snow Sports Director, Karen Dolan, and Event Manager, Meghan Nelson presented the White Mountain Trail Collective with a check for $665. Funds were collected during weeks 3 and 4 of the Mountain Meister Pay2Play Program. Through the Meister's Pay2Play program, racers can take a third run each week for a $5 donation to a pre-determined local charity/non-profit.
Last week, Cranmore presented Josh Preece with a check for $255 from the first two weeks of the Pay2Play Program. Preece, a local to the Mount Washington Valley, sustained lift altering injuries after a mountain bike injury in 2018.
The White Mountain Trail Collective works to protect and maintain the trails in the White Mountains as well as preserve the historic legacy left by decades of trail stewards ensuring that the unique and rich landscape is enjoyed for generations to come.
On Sunday, February 9th, Cranmore will host the Amazing Winter Race, a fundraising scavenger hunt that will bring participants around the slopes of Cranmore, while testing their knowledge of the Mount Washington Valley. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Mount Washington Valley 2020 Trail Projects. A valid Cranmore lift ticket or season pass and waiver are required to participate in the event starting at 10am on the third floor of the Main Base Lodge. Lift tickets can be purchased at book.cranmore.com and promo code WMTC20 can be used to save $10 off the lift ticket purchase.
One of the WMTC projects for 2020 includes work to the Cranmore Connector; repairing the existing hiking trail, widening it to allow for hiker use and uphill mountain bike access along with building a new downhill mountain trail parallel to the hiking trail.
