Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway

Summer/Fall 2021 Operations:

Spring 2021 Update:

We are currently planning to reopen the Aerial Tramway, but that is pending any necessary approvals from the Governor's office and DHHS, including any updated guidance. If approved, we would anticipate opening on Memorial Day weekend. Our modified reopening plan that we will submit for approval currently includes online, advance reservations for specific time periods, reduced capacity to 20-25%, mask & social distancing measures, and opening the Valley Station building only to those with reservations.

Check back in May for updates on operating plan, dates, trip schedule, etc.


An 80-passenger cable car brings visitors to the 4,080-foot summit of Cannon Mountain in under ten minutes. On a clear day, you can see the mountains of four states and Canada! At the summit, you'll find spectacular scenic walking paths, a 360 degree observation deck, a cafe and restrooms. Cafe hours are currently 9am-4pm.
