About Meisters


Celebrating its 50th season, Cranmore Mountain Meister’s is one of the longest-running Community Race Leagues in the United States!  

Cranmore Mountain Resort hosts 30+ teams with approximately 450 racers on 10 Wednesdays throughout the season; and even though it is a race league, the true focus of the program is to have fun with your friends, family and coworkers.  Being a Meister, is part of being a local.

Being a Mountain Meister gives you an excuse to ski or ride every Wednesday that Cranmore is open, except during holiday and vacation weeks (Christmas Vacation and President's Week).  You also receive tickets to attend two Meister Clinics of your choosing. 

Our Meister Clinics are what makes Mountain Meister’s different from all the other leagues out there.  Meister Clinics are offered throughout the season with additional “Early Season Clinics” in December to get your season started on the right foot, and to make you more comfortable on the mountain.

To paraphrase Herbert Schneider: “If you live in the Mt. Washington Valley, skiing is part of your heritage. It is only right that everyone should have a chance to ski regardless of their financial situation. As a ski community, it is a sound investment in our future.”  The Mountain Meister’s Program, provides that opportunity for affordable skiing, riding, and coaching to the residents of the greater Mount Washington Valley area.
