Mount Cranmore New Hampshire Vintage Art Deco Ski Poster

Cranmore Mountain Resort is located in North Conway, New Hampshire. Currently, it is one of New Hampshire’s most successful ski resorts. It was founded in 1937 by a group of businessmen, led by Harvey Dow Gibson a native son of North Conway and president of the Manufacturers Trust Company, who wanted to establish North Conway as the ski capital of the world. Picking land on Lookout Mountain, they began the construction of a small ski resort there.

Cranmore probably would have faded into obscurity if it weren’t for Hitler and the German annexation of Austria, where Hannes Schneider had created his ski school. Schneider was an outspoken critic of the Nazis, and they stripped him of his title in 1938. Gibson arranged for Schneider’s release to the United States. Hannes relocated to North Conway, home of the famous Ski Mobile Lift taken out of service a few years ago.
