Steep for New England
Weather, no night life whatsoever
I would probably give Cannon 4 stars among only New England resorts. They have better steeps, more challenge terrain than anything else in New Hampshire. Upper Hardscrabble is a very good trail, and Mittersill can be fun (even with the new lift). However, overall the mountain is pretty small, and the weather can be absolutely brutal. Finally, there is absolutely no night life besides the bar in the lodge, and there's just about nowhere to stay within miles. With that being said, this is my go-to as it is only a 2 hour drive from Boston.
