Cannon Mountain offers the remarkable combination of a ruggedly beautiful setting, first class lifts and a relaxed State Park environment. With New Hampshire's greatest vertical drop, it is a favorite among more advanced skiers/riders. For conditions, rates and hours please visit

Cannon is a legend among skiers and riders in the Northeast not only for its terrain, but for its striking natural beauty and affordability. SKI Magazine's Reader Survey recently voted Cannon the #1 Value in the East. Guests will find a brand new double chair at Mittersill, the only lift-accessed backcountry terrain in the East. While best known for its superb expert terrain, Cannon also offers the Tuckerbrook Family Area, ideal for learning and developing skills on thirteen trails and glades for beginners and lower intermediate skiers. This makes Cannon a great place to learn to ski with a wide variety of programs for both children and adults. The Mittersill Backcountry Area covers 86 acres and is well known among expert skiers. Cannon also boasts the longest vertical drop in New Hampshire and the highest ski area summit in NH at 4080'.
