FRANCONIA NOTCH, New Hampshire — Cannon Mountain has once again topped the charts in SKI magazine’s annual Top 10 lists for value, terrain, scenery, challenge, and access.

In its October 2007 issue, SKI magazine named Cannon among the highest rated ski areas in the East, scoring number one for value, number two for accessibility, number four for scenery, number seven for challenge, and number nine for variety of terrain. Cannon Mountain was also recently named one of “Seven Great Places to Ski with Your Kids” in the November 2007 issue of Ski magazine.

Cannon’s high ratings don’t surprise the new General Manager, John DeVivo. ???Cannon’s been keeping all of these closely guarded secrets for years, and it’s no surprise that the rest of the world is now rediscovering us.???

Cannon Mountain offers a number of value deals, including Twofers (non-holiday Tuesdays and Thursdays, two can ski or ride for $60), NH Resident Day (non-holiday Wednesdays, residents can ski or ride for $25) and multi-day lift ticket options.

Cannon Mountain has 60 trails, 9 lifts, and terrain for beginners to experts. Cannon has the longest vertical drop with the highest lift-served terrain in New Hampshire. With New Hampshire’s only aerial tramway, Cannon is located directly off I-93 in Franconia Notch State Park.
