Logo   Cannon Mountain Ski Resort, NH
Massive and lofty enough to be served by an aerial tramway, Cannon Mountain allows you to ride up and take a l-o-n-g time skiing down: helicopter skiing without the expensive helicopter.



At the north entrance to Franconia Notch, within Franconia Notch State Park (map), Cannon Mountain Ski Resort is for dedicated skiers who want to spend most of their time racing down the slopes.

At 4080 feet (1244 meters), Cannon Mountain's summit is the highest of any ski area in New Hampshire, and its 2180-foot (664-meter) vertical drop is also the state's greatest.

The mountain's 72 trails on 178 acres, plus the 86-acre Mittersill Backcountry Area, are served by nine ski lifts: the 70-passenger Aerial Tramway cable car; 1 detachable quad chairlift; 2 fixed-grip quad chairlifts, 3 triple chairlifts; 1 handle tow, and a Wonder Carpet.

Snowmaking covers 97% of Cannon trails, and the mountain's north/northeast exposure keeps it cold.
