Description Cannon Mountain was the site of the first passenger tramway in North America. The fact that it was built at all is a tribute to the vision of a few men, and the foresight of the New Hampshire Legislature.Skiers and riders create uneven surfaces, with troughs and small mounds. These mounds, if left alone, will grow into moguls. Typically, the front blade is used to smooth out the surface, and move snow into areas where loose snow has been pushed off by the day’s traffic. The blade is also used heavily after snow is made. Generally, snow is made in some type of pile, whether large or small. It is necessary to push large quantities of snow around to create the smooth even surface that Cannon skiers and riders expect. It may take a day or more to work a freshly covered trail into an even, enjoyable surface. Over time, snow constantly moves downhill, and tends to be pushed toward the edges of trails, so blading is needed to keep a good, consistent coat of snow across the slope.
