    I accept this as a challenge to post photos.

    I have a long distance love affair with Cannon. I've only been there for a day or two during the following three seasons: '76, '95 and '10.

    NE Ski Museum is very cool and very educational for a visitor from outside the north country.

    I'll pop a little love Cannon's way as well. Man if I could only get up there with conditions like I had in March two years ago for High Schools. Boy at PSU will probably get Super Pass and spend most of his time there so this time I'll have someone to escort me down some of the really good stuff. (Maybe Cannonball's offer to show me around still stands too?). Look forward to getting there this year.

    Always liked Cannon. Some of the best views in New England & the skiing ain't bad either when they have snow. Also like that little picnic table they have off the side of one of the trails.

    Only been once, last season, but it was a fantastic day of riding despite being very scraped off and icy up top. I can't wait to get back there this year, hopefully on a powder day. I still have to explore Mittersill as well as more of the main area. Might have to make it a weekend to ensure I have enough time.

    Well we skied there about three years ago after a Spring refreeze and there were many glass ice areas and death cookies everywhere. It was their last day open and my wife had enough after about 4 runs. I skied a few more runs before I bagged it too. Needless to say - it was a bad experience. Well, we returned last year with the Fox 44 card and had an awesome time, the following weekend the price was reduced and we skied there again with Cannonball for the morning. Well after those two days we were sold on returning. After someone here, clued me in on the NH veterans season pass deal, we looked into it further and for the first time ever, my wife, son and I will be season pass holders at Cannon - we are excited. Hope to make some runs with several of you this season at Cannon! I am now a Cannon Ass Kisser!
