Enjoyed the beautiful view from the Cannon Mtn. Aerial Tramway and the narration as we went up to the top of the mountain. Got off and had coffee in their snack bar, and bought postcards in their souvenior section. Got to see Vermont mountains as well as you could see for miles around you. The personnel were friendly and polite, too.

Recently we have added The Mittersill Ski Area to our already challenging main ski area. We hosted the very first World Cup Alpine Ski Competition where Jean Claude Killy won three gold medals. Over a half dozen Olympic skiers trained here at their home mountain. Come and join me next month as we open.See you at the CannonBall Pub after skiing!

We took the tram on a nice, fairly-clear day. Leaves were starting to turn. It was beautiful. I appreciated that the tram guide warned us when the car was going to bump or sway as I am not a fan of these trams hanging by a cable! Car was packed but people were nice, letting others have a turn to snap a few pictures of the beauty out the open window.

At the top we took the pretty easy Rim Trail which was full of evergreen trees and smelled like Christmas. We ended up at the observation tower, then walked back to the cafe for some lunch. Their grilled cheese sandwich was delicious, though over-priced of course due to the location. It was worth it to dine with the gorgeous view in front of us. Took a lot of photos and soaked in the beauty around us before heading back down the mountain.

Definitely worth the trip up on a clear day.

Tram to the top should not be missed. the views atop this mountain are just wonderful. We encountered snow as well. So it was double delight for us.

The trip up on the tramway takes about six minutes and the views from the top are superb. We were very lucky as today it was very bright and clear and we could see for miles and miles. Many of the leaves have fallen now in this area but we had the added bonus of about two inches of snow at the top.
