NORTH CONWAY, N.H. – Cranmore Mountain Resort’s plans for a sparkling new combination base lodge and condominiums proceed apace. The new Fairbanks Lodge – slated to open next fall – features over 30,000 feet of lodge and gathering space in addition to 15 two-story lofted residences on its upper levels. Daily services will also include season-long lockers, a ski and gear retail outlet, a spacious food pavilion, restroom, and slope-side bar.
While construction continues during this season, Cranmore is setting up a temporary, but creative solution: a high-energy basecamp concept with heated portable restrooms and 3,000 square-foot cafeteria off the deck of their Zip’s Pub Restaurant. It will also have lockers as well as all usual services patrons could find at a lodge. Their newest eatery, the BBQ Bar specializes in all your favorite barbecue delicacies.
Better still, Cranmore’s Ski Mobile Express Quad, installed in 1995, received a $1 million full-system modernization spring the spring of 2022. Upgrades include Doppelmayr’s most advanced, state-of-the-art safety features, including an automated system that will control the lift speed during windy conditions and a tower speaker system that will allow the lift operators to communicate with guests on the lift. The resort celebrates its 85th anniversary this season with a number of grand celebrations throughout the winter.
