When you think of amusement and adventure parks, you probably picture a lovely summer day. With Cranmore Resort’s Mountain Adventure Park in North Conway, New Hampshire, a snow-packed winter afternoon can be just as fun-filled as those summer days at Canobie Lake Park!
On the surface Cranmore is your average New Hampshire ski resort, but they offer so much more. From the very best in downhill skiing, snowboarding and tubing, to airborne swing rides and their very own mountain roller coaster – there is something for everyone to enjoy, whether you ski or not!
Cranmore’s slopes have a 2000 foot elevation and a 1200 foot vertical rise.
There are 56 different trails ranging from beginner to advanced.
If you’re a newbie, but you want to learn the ropes, Cranmore offers ski lessons for toddlers all the way up to adults.
If skiing just isn’t your thing, head over to the exclusive Cranmore Tubing Park instead!
Tubes are included in the admissions price and the hill is a sprawling 10 lanes wide.
Once you’re worn out from skiing and tubing on the slopes, strap into the Giant Swing over at the Mountain Adventure Park.
You and up to three friends will be strapped in and arc higher and higher into the clear blue sky.
For an even bigger rush, try the two-person Soaring Eagle zip line ride.
You will blast 700 feet down the mountainside on a suspended cable, picking up speed all the way.
Perhaps best of all is the wildly popular Mountain Coaster.
The track weaves thousands of feet through the woods and down the mountain.
You are able to control your own speed – so you can keep it leisurely if you’re riding with a little one…
Or zoom through the winter air at 25 mph if you are looking for a thrill.
Best of all, it doesn’t have to be winter to enjoy Cranmore. The ski season ends in March, but the Adventure Park stays open all year with zip lines, summer tubing, bungy trampolines, segway tours and hiking. There are even mini-adventures for the smaller kids to enjoy like bounce houses and climbing walls.
If the dreary winter blues are starting to set in, head over to North Conway, New Hampshire for a day (or two or three!) of snowy fun at Cranmore Adventure Park and Ski Resort!
