"Cannon Mountain has a justifiable reputation for challenging and exciting expert trails as well as glades. The historic roots are evident in the design of the older trails, which tend to be somewhat narrow and winding. When North America's first Aerial Tramway was installed in 1938, it would have been hard to believe that, 68 years later, Cannon Mountain would be a major New England ski area."(This excerpt taken from Cannon Mountain website)

"The Franconia Inn maintains a network of trails totaling over 65km. Most of the trails are single track in width, winding through the woods, over brooks and across meadows. We believe our single track trails create a very intimate feeling with the forest, unlike the larger double track commercial touring centers."(This excerpt taken from Franconia Village X-C Ski Center website)
