Overview

Cranmore, to put it mildly, is a classic. The resort has been in operation for more than six decades and was where Hannes Schneider, the celebrated Austrian skimeister and father of modern skiing, first opened his ski school and brought skiing to the New York and Boston masses. The original skimobile lift is now a museum piece, but there are plenty of modern replacements. Cranmore offers a good dose of daily skiing and surprising challenges. You'll find the Palmer X Park, modeled on a boardercross park, but geared toward beginner and intermediate sliders, as well as the Darkside Freestyle Terrain Park that will appeal to freestyle sliders of all abilities.
