    Cannon Mountain...thoughts

    State needs cash and it is a easy source of revenue......

    Can the $60+ lift ticket be coming to Cannon Mountain?

    Your thoughts, esp those of NH residents?

    I'm not sure I understand the lift ticket comment. Cannon's walk up rate was $67 this season.

    Seems like journalists get a lot of credibility on topics that they know little to nothing about just because they publish stories on those topics.

    When I was in the military I used to get a chuckle about the articles that I'd see involving Hanscom AFB. One basic fact that I remember being overlooked was that the base hasn't had a flying mission for decades.

    Going back on topic, since I've only been to Cannon once...no comment.

    Nowhere in the article did the author mention $60 tickets. It was about the proposed bill to lease Cannon to a private company, like the state already does with Sunapee.

    Fair enough...but I stand by my original comment.

    I think it is unlikely that Cannon will be leased. There is an influential group of folks who don't want to see that happen.

    Don't want to get political....but Gov. Lynch has said no. Plus IIRC this guy, who is on the Executive Council, which is a quirk in NH's political structure, is against it as well and he and the Council have say as to what the state does...more so than the legislature in some ways. Burton and his supporters are against leasing Cannon. FWIW Burton has been on the Council for 34 years now so he has some clout.

    I think he is also the one and along with Lynch that is not allowing the Sunapee expansion. It never makes it out of the executive council.
