After a 7 minutes ride on the gondola to the top of canon mountain, the views were spectacular especially from the observation tower. We took the short 1500 feet hike on the mountain side and it gave good views of the roads and valley below.

Second time to Cannon. This time was a three day trip. It allowed for more exploration. The new Bode Miller training facility was outstanding for racers. The terrain varies a lot, and offers something for every ability.

Cannon Mountain has a reputation as a skiers mountain, and it seems to attract a more serious skier. The mountain can also be windy and icy, but on a powder day, or a nice sunny day with no wind it is great skiing. And if...More
