Reviews for Cranmore Mountain Resort
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
We took the plunge and purchased season tickets this year, after enjoying the mountain on free passes we obtained when we bought our skis a couple years ago. This is one of the few activities that we deemed safe during the pandemic, so that has factored into our season ticket purchase.
We love this mountain for a variety of reasons. We are recreational skiers, by no means experts, and really enjoy the amount of terrain that suits us. While the mountain is more on the medium size, it’s perfect for our family. Parking has always been easy, no long walks to get to the lift, and friendly staff really help make the experience easy....

Incredible views, sunny afternoon mountain. Trails and incredible glade skiing for such a medium sized mtn. The trails from the top are all unique and very interesting as the wind down from the peak. Much longer trails than you’d think. Nice mountain top hut for lunch or a hot cocoa/beer.... Full Review
At the end of President's week all of the other mountains in the area turned their snow guns back on, but not Cranmore. Conditions were very icy with poor coverage. disapointing.... Full Review
our family just returned from cranmore this past week, June 20th, 2015. We purchased 6 tickets for the arial adventure and 6 rides? they offer- $400. The arial adventure is not NEARLY as kid friendly as the youtube video about cranmore indicates. Three out of six of us couldn't continue on past the first course. (our ages- 10, 17, and 40. All of us thin and relatively athletic!) So, we spent a large portion of our time, and money, riding the few rides cranmore offers. This wouldn't be an issue, except for the fact that the teen/ young adult staff were condescending to the children and impatient. Every ride required some sort of dialogue the staff member needed to follow....which the would fly through at the speed of light, sometimes mumbling, and then be frustrated that the 8 year old missed something; "pay attention next time" is what I heard from a gruff, heavy set girl operating the swing.
My other three family members, while extreamly scared at times, admittedly had fun in the trees after mastering the lock mechanisms...which malfunctioned on my 19 years old son. neither lock would open and he required assistance. the most troubling part of this day was when my three family members were stuck at a base for 10-13 minutes, screaming for assistance before anyone recognized their need. THey were by the suspended ladder and didn't have axcess to a rope they required to complete the task... The only thing awesome about this adventure is the expense of going to cranmore, and perhaps the audacity of some of its staff members.

Overall a great mountain with a proper ski town at its base. Mountain coaster is great and fast. Good terrain and natural snow is always there in between and on the side of the trails. I will definitely be back!
