Hannes Schneider Meister Cup Weekend

The Hannes Schneider Meister Cup is unlike any ski race in history. It combines the best of skiing today with the warm nostalgia of yesterday. It honors the founding father of ski instruction, Austrian Hannes Schneider, who brought his world-renowned skills to North Conway and Mt. Cranmore in 1939. Schneider introduced skiing fun and excitement to millions around the globe.

A Cranmore fan favorite, the 22nd Annual Hannes Schneider Meister Cup Weekend will take place March 9th through March 11th. 

The event kicks off Friday night with a Tyrolean-themed dinner, EMS Twilight Skinning Tour & a torchlight parade. 

Saturday, the celebration of ski school founder Hannes Schneider’s arrival at the mountain continues with a dual giant slalom race, silent auction, vintage skiwear contest, après entertainment, prizes, music and more. Visit here for details and a full schedule.
