Return to Cannon Mountain Profile
After developing the Zoomer and Peabody areas with new chairlifts in the early 1960s, some considered the base area to be crowded, inadequate, and detached.

In early 1967 a study was released, with the recommendation to build a new, central base area adjacent Echo Lake, between Zoomer and Peabody.

Part of an overall $1.8 million project, the new base area was to feature a lodge, 15 acres of parking lots, and two new lifts (900 and 1,200 feet long) plus one replacement lift (replacing the T-Bar from the Peabody base) to tie into the existing area.

It is not known how much further this proposal made it beyond initial New Hampshire State House legislation. The T-Bar out of the Peabody base would be replaced a few years after this proposal.
