CONWAY — Week 6 of Cranmore Mountain Meisters started off with a nice strong breeze Wednesday, but after 11 a.m., it turned out to be another beautiful day.
We had nearly 300 Meisters racing this week. The Pay2Play option from open until close was again for End 68 Hours of Hunger and raised more than $350 this week.
At the midseason party, we had Shark Martin rocking the house; we had the ever-popular potato bar for the lunch special; and raffle prizes as always. It was another great week for the Meisters.
Julien Deniaud took the top spot for the men this week, with Richie Scanlon and Trevor Tasker rounding out the top three. For the women, Maddie Glavin and Taryn Palmer decided to tie for the top spot this week, while taking third was Kayla Kowal.
Paul Robert for the men and Martha Leich for the woman won the telemark honors.
For the snowboarders, Jeff Frechette took the top spot back this week for the men. For the women, Maegan O’Neil was first again this week.
Remember, there is no racing next week during February vacation week — racing will pick up the following week on Feb. 26 for Week 7. When we return for Week 7, there will be a mug hunt for Meisters. Find an orange mug on the mountain and turn it in at Zip’s Pub for a $1 Tuckerman draft. Also, if you haven’t heard yet, we have moved the downhill from Week 8 to Week 9 due to a scheduling conflict — thanks for your understanding.
With vacation week upon us, Cranmore will have extended hours of operation, Saturday, Feb. 15, through Saturday, Feb. 22. Skiing and riding will be from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.; tubing and the Mountain Adventure Park hours will be 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Cranmore will have live music daily from 4-7 p.m. in Zip’s Pub and Cranapalooza, s’mores and DJ Bobby Freedom from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Fireworks are scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 22, at 6 p.m. and you can watch them over the South Slope.
