Ski weekend February

Great Mountain and a friendly staff. The shuttle bus service was great and a short ride from parking lot to the Tram. The clam chowder in the base lodge was homemade and delicious.

Cannon and the surrounding area are beautiful. Skiing is more iffy. On a great day, with the views, amazing. Other days, not so much.

It would be probably more of interest to the avid skiers. However, they have a tram, non-skiers can take up and down. There is also a cafe and awesome views from the high up in the mountain.

Love the lodge and has nice Family area plus great challenging trails on upper mountain. Long slopes- from intermediate to Double black diamond trails. Has aerial tram to top that is enclosed and heated as well as high speed quad chair lifts. Only negative is peak is on shady side of mountain and tend stop be in shadows and cold.

I've been keeping this secret for several years and have held a season ski pass a well. But its time to share with all of the new snowmaking added this past year. I believe Cannon will surpass all of the rest in the state with this venture. Cannon has received the most snow and with added snowmaking had more trails... More

Cannon has always had a deserved reputation for being icy and difficult for beginner or lower intermediate skiers. So understood buyer beware . However on our Club visit mid week the only lift that serviced trails that allowed for good conditions for those who didn't want to wrestle with skied off areas near the top was not operating.Management said it...

I skied on a powder day during the Xmas holiday week. I pulled into the Tram lot at 7:30 (lift opens at 8:15) and there was a line of 75+ to buy tickets and no one selling tickets yet! Meanwhile anyone with a pass is hopping in the tram line ahead of ticket buyers. I drove over to the main... More

We visited on a very cold day. At ground level it was cool. When we reached the summit the green, red and yellow of the trees had turned to white on account of the frost. There is a lovely walk at the top, with stunning views. Highly recommended if the summit is white, otherwise the effect would not be the... More

Don't be put off by the slight swaying of the car as you ascend to the top of the mountain, it is well worth the experience. If you fell like it, and are fit enough, take a wak down from the top

Amazing views from the viewing area at the top on a clear day - all the way to Canada. Nice walk around the summit.
