Memorial planned for longtime director at Cranmore Mountain
NORTH CONWAY — Cranmore Mountain will host a memorial next week to mark the passing of longtime resort director of operations Jimmy Mersereau.
The memorial is planned for Monday morning and is open to the public. The South Quad lift will run at 7:30 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. for the memorial to Mersereau, who died in December 2009.
A granite monument with a bronze plaque stands near the end of Jimmy's Run, the trail named in honor of Mersereau. Mersereau designed and built the trail, which connects the South Slope at the resort.
The monument offers a view of Mount Washington beyond the top of the south chair and was built in memory of Mersereau for his 40 years of service to Cranmore.
