March 5, 2018 - Franconia, NH - Cannon Mountain has begun its 80th anniversary celebration by rolling back prices on 2018-2019 season passes, along with new benefits for new and existing passholders.
Unveiled on Feb. 24, the 80th Anniversary Season Pass has the lowest the season pass prices in eight years, matching 2010-2011 rates - and it is already breaking records, with more than quadruple sales over last year in just nine days since the release.
Adult Cannon Passes are $160 less than last year, and the Adult NH Resident Pass holder will see over $120 in savings. See the full list of rates here.
Cannon also announced the new Young Adult Cannon Pass (ages 18-29) for $499. The Young Adult NH Resident Pass will start at $374.
As an added bonus, those who purchase 2018-2019 Adult Pass (and do not currently own a 2017-2018 Cannon Season Pass, 2017-2018 Superpass, College Superpass or Bold & Beautiful from Cannon Mountain) can use the new pass to ski Cannon for the remainder of this season. Existing passholders can use their 2017-2018 pass for a free round-trip ride on the Aerial Tramway during the upcoming 2018 summer and fall seasons.
These prices do have an expiration date, as the offers are valid through May 31, 2018. Prices will increase starting on June 1.
Cannon is also offering Early Bird specials, where those who purchase passes by April 15 will also receive a Cannon80 PLUS Card, a gift card that will allow the passholder to buy three $25 Tickets to Share. Alternatively, those who buy passes between April 16 and May 31 will receive the Cannon80 Card with three $50 Tickets to Share. These cards are transferable and will be issued in Fall 2018 when passes are picked up. Cards are not valid on Child or NH Senior Pass purchases.
About Cannon Mountain
Cannon Mountain's rich 80-year history began with the 1938 construction of North America's first aerial tramway, which helped paved the way for the skiing industry and tourism in New Hampshire. Nearly 6.6 million visitors rode the tram until it was was replaced by a new tramway in 1980.
Over the years, the legendary mountain has continued to improve its grooming fleet and bring on state-of-the-art snowmaking equipment that now produces twice as much snow with increased efficiency, making Cannon one of the state's premier ski areas.
Cannon not only boasts the highest ski area summit (4,080 feet) and the steepest vertical drop (2,180 feet) in New Hampshire, it is also the skiing birthplace of legends like U.S. Ski Team and Olympic racing superstar Bode Miller (who will host his annual charity fundraiser at Cannon on March 24).
