Uphill Travel - Resort Skinning Policy

Earn your turns this winter!

Cranmore encourages uphill travel and wants to make sure guests traveling uphill are doing so in a safe manner.  All guests traveling uphill MUST have a valid lift ticket, or season pass.  For the safety of guests and on-hill operation staff, uphill travel is NOT PERMITTED DURING NON-OPERATIONAL HOURS, except 7AM prior to normal operating hours.  Accessing the mountain outside of these hours is considered TRESPASSING and will be enforced.  

During operating hours, uphill travel is permitted on all open terrain; from 7am until resort opening, travel (ascending and descending) is restricted to Beginner's Luck, Gibson and Easy Street only (click here to view trail map).  

  • Uphill travel prior to opening is done solely at the individuals own risk. There are no rescue services available at this time.  
  • Ski patrol has the right to adjust uphill access as conditions and business volumes change.  
  • Dogs except for leashed service dogs, are not allowed on the mountain at any time.  
  • Guests traveling uphill must have a valid season pass, Skinning Uphill Season Pass or valid lift ticket.  

$20 from each Midweek Uphill Skinning Season Pass pass sold will go directly to the Granite Backcountry Alliance. Granite Backcountry Alliance is a North Conway-based 501(c)(3) organization formed to promote the sport of backcountry skiing in New Hampshire and Western Maine. Granite Backcountry Alliance Logo

The Alliance seeks to provide low-impact human-powered backcountry skiing opportunities to the public through the creation, improvement and maintenance of ski glades. It also strives to create a culture of smart, prepared skiers and riders to face the challenges in the backcountry.  

At Cranmore, the Alliance encourages smart uphill travel and being aware of your surroundings to ensure a safe skiing environment. Visit their website here.
