It has been quite the run for Cannon Mountain general manager John DeVivo. Since taking charge in 2007, DeVivo has been at the forefront of a number of defining developments within Franconia Notch State Park, including the redevelopment of Mittersill Ski Area, a project that has increased Cannon’s terrain by 70 percent.
In addition, DeVivo’s team has been tasked with managing pandemic overflow from all activities at various venues within the New Hampshire state park, including the Flume Gorge, Echo Lake Beach and the Cannon Aerial Tramway, currently not in use due to COVID-19 restrictions.
We caught up with DeVivo to find out how Cannon was managing through a winter season that started late but has gradually found its flow.
