A History of Cannon Mountain

A History of Cannon Mountain: Tales, Trails, and Skiing Legends
by Meghan McCarthy McPhaul
(History Press, 2011).

Cannon Mountain’s history is steeped in skiing legend and lore. The granite-domed mountain has been the playground of skiers since the 1930s and is home to the country’s first down mountain ski trail, the first passenger aerial tramway in North America, and the first professional ski patrol. More than a dozen members of the U.S. Ski Hall of Fame—whose contributions to the sport include historic racing feats, the development of ski techniques, and designing countless ski areas across the country and around the world—have called Cannon their home hill.  Meghan has been skiing at Cannon Mountain since she was a small child. After five years in the mountains of Colorado, she returned East and began a career as a small-town newspaper reporter, earning accolades and professional journalism awards while working on the side as a ski coach.  Her book captures the flavor of Cannon for all to enjoy.

All books will be signed by the author (since her husband's family business (Harrison Publishing House) has done all the printing for Harman's over the years - we do have a connection).
