Cannonsburg is by far the best ski area. All the hills are well groomed, and the man made snow is not ice, like you see at other ski resorts. It is a great place to learn and a awesome place to family ski, or just ski by yourself. The staff and ski patrol is well trained, and the equipment people are very knowledgeable and know what they are doing. The lifts are fast to get to the top. (tripple and double chairs are slower because they are for beginneer skiiers) Remember that the double is that slowest chair, tripple is the 2nd fastest chair, and the Quad chair is the fastest. The tow ropes are awesome, and the instructers help if you need it. Some times it does get packed, but so does every other ski resort. To shorten down the lines just, go on a different hill like the triple or double. Then when the lines shorten, then try to go on the Face and the Quad. This is an awesome place to teach a family to ski, and a place for you to become a better skiier. I will most definently ski here again!!!!
