New condominium building features 17 residences, ski patrol facility
With the construction of Fairbank Lodge comfortably on schedule, Cranmore Mountain Resort has unveiled the next stage of its ambitious base area development project.
The Lookout is the newest addition to the Cranmore development portfolio that includes Kearsarge Brook Condominiums I and II, and Fairbank Lodge. The Lookout will include a state-of-the-art first aid facility for ski patrol, and 17 two-to-four-bedroom residences (eight of which are two-story lofted units) – ranging from about 1,170 to 2,490 square feet. Construction for The Lookout is expected to begin summer 2023, with the building expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
The Lookout will be parallel to Fairbank Lodge, extending out towards the Skimobile Express Quad, allowing ski-in/ski-out access. Lookout residences will face Cranmore’s slopes and surrounding mountain ranges.
The building was named after Lookout Mountain, the original name of Cranmore Mountain. The name was chosen to pay tribute to how far the resort has come since being an under-explored hiking destination.
Non-binding reservations for The Lookout are currently being accepted, as this condominium has not yet been registered by the New Hampshire Consumer Protection and Antitrust Bureau of the Attorney General’s Office, Department of Justice. Once approval is received from the Attorney General’s Office, in the spring, Cranmore will secure purchase and sales agreements with buyers who have non-binding reservations.
“These are exciting times at Cranmore,” said Ben Wilcox, President and General Manager of Cranmore Mountain Resort. “With the opening of the Fairbank Lodge set to kick off our 2023-24 ski season, and the recent addition of the new Artist Falls Lodge and the Fairfield Inn and Suites, we welcome The Lookout to the Cranmore family. It’s wonderful to see the base area development come to life—we can’t wait to see our guests experience true mountain living in the Mount Washington Valley for years to come.”
The Lookout is a continuation of resort improvements started in 2010 when Cranmore was purchased by the father and son team of Brian and Tyler Fairbank of The Fairbank Group, and Joseph O’Donnell. When complete, the $85 million base area redevelopment—based on the highly successful development at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in the Berkshires of Massachusetts—will double the size of the area’s day-visit facilities and introduce 98 condominium residences to the resort.
Since The Fairbank Group’s acquisition of Cranmore in 2010, over $42 million has been invested in resort improvements and development that include upgrades to mountain infrastructure and snowmaking technologies, three new lifts, lift upgrade, enhanced family ski learning programs, a full summer park attraction, and a lift-serviced downhill mountain bike park.
