Mountain Meisters is the longest running winter race league in the US. For the past 53 years, 350 local skiers and snowboarders create teams to compete for the title, but more importantly, the community comes together to enjoy a tradition carried on by generations of Valley locals. Being a Meister is part of being a local.
Cranmore hosts Meisters every Wednesday for ten weeks each winter. Participants get a pass that allows lift access all-day Wednesday and two tickets for Meister Clinics offered throughout the season.
Meister Clinics are offered throughout the season with additional Early Season Clinics in December to get the race season started on the right foot.
Meisters can donate $5 at the start shack for a third run. Money collected for Pay2Play will support a local charity each week. Meisters have raised over $5,000 for local charities through Pay2Play donations. 2024 Pay2Play recipients include End 68 Hours of Hunger, Project Graduation, MWV Ski Jumping, Jen's Friends Cancer Foundation, and Starting Point.
Meister registration is now open. Registration is $179 per racer and includes Meister Race Day, weekly raffles and apres entertainment, two in-season Tuesday Race Clinics with lift access, and two pre-season clinics prior to Christmas.
The 2024 race season begins Wednesday, January 3, 2024, and runs through Wednesday, March 13, 2024 (no race on February 21st). Each racer will take one run on each course. The course will be open from 9am-5:30pm.
