South of Littleton near Franconia Notch in the White Mountains, the Cannon Mountain ski area has 55 runs over 264 acres served by 10 lifts with a maximum vertical descent of 2,150 feet. The ski area is popular with snowboarders for its superb expert terrain. The 70 passenger Aerial Tramway is a quick way to get up to the Cannon summit to start the day (closed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday). While there is a nice parking area at the tramway base, there are no services.
For steeps, try the Tram Line run recently opened and also the Avalanche.
For real challenge, hike over the saddle to the Mittersill summit for steep and narrow runs. There is a new lift in the Mittersill area, but check to see if it is open before you head to that area (it didn't open in 2012 and most of 2013).
For apres ski, try the Cannonball Pub at the base or the Woodstock Brewery.
To reach the snowboarding at Cannon Mountain, follow US93 to Exit #34B or #34C. There are three parking ares.
Tip - For the past several years, Cannon Mountain has had two-for-one lift tickets on Super Bowl Sunday. While this attracts a crowd, it usually empties out by noon.
Overall, Cannon Mountain Ski Area is the 10th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 19 snowboarding resorts in New Hampshire.
