Cannon Mountain, New Hampshire: Rank 19 East, 1997

Cannon Mountain, New Hampshire: Rank 19 East, 1997

Still rustic and rough-hewn, Cannon lets you experience skiing the way it used be. Trails dart and dive, then disappear, earning Cannon its reputation as a tough place to turn. But Cannon earns that rep as much for weather conditions as terrain. Often cold and windy, its slopes are buffeted by the same winds that hit nearby Mount Washington. Rime ice is a regular decoration on its buildings. It has enough snowmaking to cover up rough spots but not enough to make it gracefully through tough snow years.

The New England Ski Museum at the base of the people-gobbling 70-passenger tram alone is worth the trip. The Museum has an outstanding collection of memorabilia dating back to the sport's formative years.

What's New Not much. The state of New Hampshire has been stingy with the capital improvement budget.
Medals Gold Terrain, Challenge, Value
High/Low Rank Challenge (12); Weather (79)
Don't Miss Skiing the "backcountry" over to the defunct Mittersill ski area. Take the Taft Slalom trail from the summit. It requires a short hike, but it's mostly an easy cruise, especially back from Mittersill to Cannon's Peabody lodge.
Reader Remarks "Good value and good skiers. No frills but close to nightlife." "Poor grooming and poor lifts besides the tram. Dress warm, watch for ice."
