We are two 40 something women snowboarders and we love Cannon. We went recently and there was enough snow to board but it was icy underneath which made falling painful of course. It was so super cold & icy that we actually did end up with an injury from a fall that otherwise wouldn't even have really hurt.

Cannon is steep. It's for more advanced skiers and riders and a lot of locals and local ski teams frequent this place. When there is a ton of snow, it is an excellent place for adults and more advanced folks. I wouldn't bring my kids here (not that I have any) or a beginner.

The staff here is excellent, the trails are awesome and there are plenty of lifts and food options. But this year there just wasn't enough snow for us. They do make it and that's all well and good. But it wasn't enough for us this time.

The area was extremely clean and there were so many things to do... canoeing, hiking, fishing, etc. We took the Tram to the top and hiked down... beautiful way to see and enjoy the mountain!

Went with 2 families, kids age 5 to teen and adults, ski school was perfect for morning for 5year old, he skied rest of the day with family, various trails and lifts, cafeteria at bottom level good if y want to save money and bring your own lunch, excellent hot chocolate in lounge upstairs. Didn't feel crowded like Loon does, relaxing family fun skiing. Will be back for next break.

Took a trip here with some friends and our kids over the summer. We took the tram up the mountain and then hiked up to the observation deck. It is amazing to look down from the mountain and see all the structures and lakes below. The tram ride up was a bit nerve racking for me but it was well worth it once I saw the views from the tram. before our ride back down we stopped and got some yummy fudge at the little store up the moutain. It was delicious.

We took the tram on a bright September day and the views were absolutely amazing. The trail at the top that brings you to an observation tower is definitely worth the short walk.
