Skiing in Cranmore

It is especially popular with families and has a reputation for being sheltered when extreme winter weather occasionally hits the region - staying open when other centres are forced to close completely.
Runs of note include Skimiester, a nice windy blue trail which gets steeper towards the end; at which point you have the option to switch on to easier Bandit to Lower Arlberg, or keep going on Bandit and cut over to Lower Hurricane.
Tougher runs include Ledges (pretty steep), Middle (a black diamond but not terribly steep),
Night skiing is available on Saturday nights and during peak holiday periods on eleven trails.

Cranmore Aprés Ski
Cranmore's slopeside lodging means there is some resort activity after the slopes close for daylight operation, with night skiing and tubing also helping to keep the centre lively after dark. In recent seasons the resort has made a particular effort to keep a party mood going on key nights with clown, jugglers, fireworks and more.
The Beer & Brat is a popular and often lively après spot, or you can travel out to the bright lights of North Conway for its extensive range of bars and eateries.
