Though ski areas and public schools alike have been shuttered due to COVID-19, Conway is seeing a unique alliance that will allow high school students to have a non-virtual graduation.
Cranmore Mountain Resort is offering the use of its chairlift and summit area free of charge to host the Kennett High School graduation. The event it planned for Saturday, June 13.
According to the plan approved by the Conway School Board this week, a graduate and their guest will ride the Skimobile chairlift to the summit, unload to receive their diploma and have their photo taken, then will ride back to the base. The ceremony is expected to take six to seven hours to ensure spacing and distancing.
Cranmore is operated by the Fairbank Group, which also runs Bromley and Jiminy Peak.
