*cgski*go ski cannon, way cheaper and way radder
I agree... I've skied cannon for the past few years and it has not disappointed. Never crowded at Cannon/Bretton Woods.
Loon bums me out because most of my friends ski Loon/Sunday River but I just can't handle being there on weekends. Buy a pass and stand in 30 minute lines constantly every weekend... Place is PACKED on any decent day. If you are a student or work a 9-5 job like me then dealing with Loon's / Sunday River's crowds on weekends is unacceptable IMO. I bet you get 1.5- 2 x more skiing in going somewhere like Cannon.
Cannon's park is secretly pretty good too. Stepped it up in the last few years. Tough to beat Loon's rails but I just can't justify getting a pass there to stand in lines all day and avoid gapers on every trail
