#18: Cannon, N.H. (2010)

There simply might not be a more soulful, less spoiled or more beautiful place to ski than Cannon. No condos, no mansions, no boutiques—just skiing the way God intended. Readers rank it No. 4 for Overall Satisfaction and No. 1 for Value. (Last year’s top lift ticket price: $39.) It’s No. 2 for Scenery and No. 3 for both Challenge and Accessibility. Readers acknowledge the drawbacks (nightlife, dining, lodging, etc.), but generally rave: “Kicks my butt every time”; “spectacular scenery”; “awesome staff.”

/ What’s New / Official incorporation of neighboring, defunct Mittersill Ski Area trails: for now, still a hike-to sidecountry preserve. (Next year: new lift.) Also: lodge expansions.

/ Don’t Miss / A ride up the iconic Tramway and the view from the top

/ Mandatory Run / The scenic S-turns of Upper Ravine
