Default Tucker at Cranmore

On display at the Hannes Schneider Meister Cup Race benefiting the New England Ski Museum. Got to burn a few laps after the mountain closed too. They are interested in having more Vintage machines next year. Will let you know if I hear more about that.

Nice.

Cranmore is where I started grooming in 1980 except that it didn't snow so we made snow. Had some 100 hour weeks. About the time we'd get the mountain covered, it would rain and we'd start again.

Had a Skidozer to move and access the snow guns pretty much like the one I have now.

Was this yesterday the 11th? We were at the Pinkham Notch visitor center picking up the Tucker and it was OMG cold with lots of wind. Looks like it was nicer there.

I wish. The woman in the picture, who I happen to have gone to high school with, works for Tuckerman Brewing. She took the banner with her but I did get a couple of free beers!

According to the folks from the New England Ski Museum, Cranmore was the first ski area in the US to use mechanized grooming. Not sure if that's right or not but does seem possible. So you've got some good history there having groomed for them!

No I didn't get a ride in it but that is a beast of a machine. I was parked up on a podium kind of thing about 4' high. There was a ramp in the back but it was at 90 degrees to how I was parked. Backing off was going to be hairy. So they said no problem and built a ramp with the green machine so I could drive straight off. Took about 3 passes even though it was below zero and solid ice.

Nope, not much nicer. Coldest day of the year as far as I can tell. Crazy wind too. We skied two runs and that was it. Frozen. They never opened the lifts to the top. I heard Wildcat didn't open at all. Miserable weather for sure!

You are right about the smiles Ms. Princess. Just looking through more pics from the weekend and came across these youngins bearing their pearly whites. Mom may not be convinced yet, but they are :).

We have passes to burn at Waterville and had planned to go Saturday. Bailed out on that early on and glad we did! Other friends have a condo up there and said it was a two run day there as well with the wind shooting thru the valley. Just brutal. Hopefully tomorrows storm pushes up far enough to give a little longer spring ski season.
