Logo   Cranmore Ski Resort, North Conway
With sunny southwest-facing slopes, Cranmore gives skiers a l-o-n-g skiing day. When shadow has blanketed other resorts' slopes, people at Cranmore are still skiing in lots of sun.



Wags call it "Tanmore" because of the long sun time and southern exposure, but the long light is not its only advantage: the center of North Conway is only a mile from the base lodge, an easy 15-to-20-minute walk or a few minutes' drive (map).

The vertical drop of 1200 feet (366 meters) has 40 trails (14 novice, 18 intermediate, 8 expert) served by 9 lifts, including an express quad, a triple, three doubles and four surface lifts.

Snowboarders will find a good terrain park, mini park and half-pipe. There's tubing as well.

Lots of kids' programs, as you might imagine: all-day or half-day ski or snowboard lessons, and child care for the youngest.

Arrive at or after 2 pm, and you can take advantage of the long sunny ski time for free: the lift ticket you buy will be good for the rest of the day, and all the next day. Ticket prices are quite moderate, by the way.

As for lodgings, there are plenteous inns, hotels, hotels and B&Bs in North Conway, the largest town this side of Mount Washington. Also, new condominium developments are under way right at the resort, so timeshare rentals are a real possibility.

Restaurants abound in town as well.
