The Fairbank Group's roots are in Jiminy Peak in Hancock, Massachusetts, which has been run by Brian Fairbank since 1969. Under his leadership, the resort has been entirely rebuilt, transforming it from a three-lift, winter-only resort that employed half a dozen people to the 2,500-bed, year-round destination it is today. The resort includes a similar base area plan to the $50 million plan that will transform Cranmore.
The Jiminy Peak development brought a vibrant second home community with condominium units whose values and occupancy have remained strong since their inception. Now in the presale phase, condominiums are available through Jiminy Peak Realty.
Since purchasing Cranmore in 2010, the Fairbank Group has poured $10 million into upgrading mountain infrastructure, adding four new lifts, expanded snowmaking, building improvements, enhanced family ski learning programs and a full summer park attraction. The $50 million base area development, which is based on the highly successful development at Jiminy Peak, will double the size of the area’s day-visit facilities and introduce 108 condominium residences.
The first phase of condominium development is underway with occupancy scheduled for fall 2017. Set at the base of Cranmore’s storied South Slope, the spacious new residences will offer expansive views and the finest slopeside living in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.
