I was at Cannon Friday and Had a fun day! Considering it rained a few days ago conditions were very good. Upper lift was open, many runs were good. They are making snow like crazy. The high traffic areas got down to hardpack by noon but they groom that stuff over and it;s fine the next morning. As always, great... More

New England Hospitality hasn't gone out of style....I was blown away by the helpful and courteous staff at Cannon Mtn this week. we arrived at 1/2 price Thursday with 3 skiers..the women at the ticket window encouraged us to find another single as 3 were only skiing. She mentioned she would look for someone and encouraged us to do the... More

Been on the tram a couple of times over the summer and loved it! When my husband and I were having a weekend get-away, I looked up activities in the area and discovered Cannon was having a family fun night with a torchlight parade and fireworks. It was easy to park and access the building. It was quite crowded, but... More

This is a awesome place for people to ski at. Their is part of the mountain that is for beginners and the rest of the mountain is a little harder but great for intermediate and expert skiers. My family and I come here every other weekend and all of our vacations during the winter time. They also do fireworks and... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The tram is beautiful. The guide/driver did a great job of narrating our trip up and down. There is a great short hike at the top and hot coffee and treats at the lodge. Worth the detour!!

We went during nice weather day. It was a long wait line about 2 hours to get into the tram. The cafeteria closes exactly at 4 pm and we missed it by very few seconds. After a long wait we would prefer to have snacks but they close early. Nice views and it is again a long wait to come... More

We visited Cannon Mountain while leaf peeping on Columbus Day. The cable car is a must. There is a trail that goes around the top of the mountain that provides spectacular views of New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and New York on a clear day. The individual driving the cable car also has a very informative narrative and welcomes questions. Although... More
