Cannon Mountain
Cannon Mountain is a 4,100 foot (1250 m) peak within Franconia Notch State Park and has the most vertical of any ski area in New Hampshire. At 2,180 feet it boasts the longest vertical drop in New Hampshire. Cannon Mountain is also the site of the first passenger tramway in North America. Cannon looks like a challenging mountain driving up and seeing the front five diving into Echo Lake but there is plenty of terrain for all skiers and riders. Tuckerbrook is a completely separate family area built just for families and learning. Enjoy great views of New Hampshire and even views into Vermont! Saturday nights Huckerbrook Mini-Park is open under the lights. Full cafeteria style fare is located in the Peabody Base Lodge which also houses the Cannonball Pub, Notchview Cafe offers a wine/beer bar plus sandwiches and snacks. Light fare and drinks can be had in the Tram Base Lodge. Lodging ranges from the opulent Mount Washington Hotel, brand name hotels and inns, cabins and b&b's and wintercamping & RV park.
