School Ski Trips to
Cannon, New Hampshire, USA

Set within the Franconia Notch State Park, Cannon is state-owned and state-run, so profits are ploughed back into developing this interesting mountain.
  • New Hampshire’s highest peak and highest vertical drop
  • Purpose built learner ski area
  • Amazing views over Echo Lake and the state park

The scenery is certainly breathtaking and whilst better skiers will take in the views from the summit, absolute beginners are well catered for by the purpose-built Tuckerman family area.

Groups stay in the nearby town of Lincoln and so have a high number of amenities available, as well as the chance to ski other resorts. Cannon will certainly leave a good impression, whether from the incredible scenery or the superb skiing you’ll find there.

What Our Customers Say


  • What about après events?

    We supply a basic après package to all groups, which includes ideas and materials to run a number of in-house après activities, such as quiz nights, games nights and bingo nights. However, we also offer an extensive list of additional après ski events in each resort, which can be included in your package for a small supplement if you wish. For more details, please see the information on the individual resort pages.

  • What about ski equipment?

    Skis, boots, poles and helmet hire are all included as standard. You’ll usually be issued and fitted with your equipment on the day of arrival.

  • Which ski schools do you use?

    We have close, established links with all the ski schools in the resorts we offer. In all instances, we can guarantee highly qualified, English-speaking ski instructors who will make sure each student gets the most out of their time on the slopes.

  • Is a Trip Courier included as standard?

    Yes, all of our ski groups have one Trip Courier designated to them to take care of all the logistics and ensure everything runs smoothly. Your courier may meet you in resort but it’s sometimes possible for them to travel to and from resort with your group.

  • What else should I be looking for in a resort?

    Choosing the right resort should be governed by two main criteria: the skiing and the resort facilities. If your group has younger children or a majority of beginner skiers, then a large ski area isn’t necessary. However, for advanced skiers, the opportunity to ski more pistes will be important.

    Younger groups will not need a wide-ranging après program and lots of events can be organised in or near the hotel, including those provided in the complimentary après ski pack. However, adult groups and groups with older children will want to organise some evenings out and for après ski events to be in abundance.
