FRANCONIA NOTCH, New Hampshire ??” The Snowsports School at Cannon Mountain offers special clinics for skiers/riders of all ages and abilities. These clinics include race camps, day camps for children, and special tips to enhance visitors enjoyment of their Cannon Mountain experience.

A season-long racing camp for adults will be offered on Sundays from January 9 to February 27. From 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., participants are timed in racing gates and get coached by Cannon Mountain’s Snowsports School instructors. The course alternates between giant slalom and slalom. The cost for the full season is $175; daily entries into the group will be available for $29 (the price of a group lesson).

Also available are Children’s day camps, in which children ages 4-7 and 8-12 are grouped together according to skill level and ability so they can learn at their own pace in a comfortable environment. New this year is Hang Time, a program geared to kids ages 11-14 who want more.

In addition, Cannon Mountain is hosting Afternoon Matinees on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays at 1:30 p.m. For $29, skiers/riders can get tips on the best techniques to help them master Cannon Mountain’s Front Five slopes. From kids wanting to work in the bumps to first-timers looking for a women’s focus workshop, skiers and riders will get just the help they’re looking for from Cannon Mountain’s Afternoon Matinees.
