When reviewing Cannonsburg you should look at the competition. In a 1 hour drive you have Caberfae, Bittersweet, and Timber Ridge.
Cannonsburg has really just a few runs. You have 3 hills with only so many ways to get down. One of these hills is almost entirely dedicated to a terrain park.
Like Bittersweet this place is perfect for beginners. The hills are just tall enough to not scare beginners, yet enough vertical for them to get a few turns in.
The dining options are pretty weak. You have a bar / grill that serves burgers, wraps, nachos. Pretty limited selection. If you want fried food you have to go downstairs. The food or drinks aren't pricey though so that is a positive.
Bittersweet has better lift capacity, a better lodge, and less difficult runs. Caberfae is like Cannonsburg on steroids. Offering a lot of hill for riders of all types. You won't find anything really difficult at Cannonsburg other then the features in the terrain park.
The terrain parks features are maintained rather well though so no complaints there. Nightlife is nonexistent here, but there also is no overnight lodging.
Bring your beginners here because you can find some sweet deals. $20 for Sunday night skiing (including lift ticket, complimentary group lesson, and rental). Or I was able to get a 4 hour day pass for $10 multiple times.
The biggest downside for them is the fact that the ceiling leaks in the ticket area and the place smells wretched because of that. Maybe this will be fixed.
