Whether you’re a pro on the slopes or just starting out, join Home Base for our annual ski and snowboard trip to Cranmore Mountain! Located in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire, just 2.5 hours from the Boston area lies New Hampshire favorite skiing and snowboarding destination. Cranmore is a 4-season, family-friendly ski resort known for its ski school, sunny, south-facing slopes, and a festive atmosphere geared for skiers and non-skiers alike. Cranmore boasts 56 trails and glades with a variety of terrain for all ability levels from a beginners-only ski area, to classic New England trails and steeps, to three terrain parks. Fairbank Lodge is undergoing a major renovation this year, so base camp might look a little different. There are heated portable restrooms, portable locker space, and a 3,000 square foot cafeteria called the BBQ Barn, where guests can put on their boots and store some things on a first-come, first-served basis. There are permanent restrooms in all other locations on the mountain and more cubbies elsewhere.
If you are an experienced skier or snowboarder and have your own equipment, please select “lift ticket only.” If you need to rent, select lift ticket and the type of rental you are looking for.
