Cannon

Ski Cannon

Home to New Hampshire’s highest skiable peak, Cannon’s huge vertical drop and diverse terrain offers a challenge for all abilities. The smooth blues are ideal for improvers, while super-speedy lifts whisk everyone around the trails and intermediates can ski slalom-style through the pines and wide, tree-lined runs.

Set within Franconia Notch State Park, Cannon Mountain boasts spectacular scenery, overlooking the stunning backdrop of Mount Lafayette. Novices excel on a separate learn-to-ski area and can ride free on the Aerial Tramway to take in the views.

Whilst skiing in New Hampshire, you are guaranteed first-class American customer service, who will ensure your time in Cannon is not only well organised but also a thoroughly enjoyable experience. You’ll also have access to a free daily ski transfer from your hotel in a yellow school bus, allowing students to fully immerse themselves into American culture.

The ski resort of Cannon also prides itself on having one of the fastest ski fit services in the world! As a Party Leader, you will be asked to provide skier information before arrival, so all rental skis and boots will be individually labelled and ready for you on the day.

With our New Hampshire Ski Safari options, you can even combine your trip to Cannon with neighbouring resorts including Loon, Waterville Valley, Bretton Woods and the newly opened Mitersill Alpine Resort, found adjacent to Cannon Mountain, allowing your group to ski at least two resorts in one visit.
