New Hampshire’s House is voting this week whether lawmakers should get free ski passes for Cannon Mountain. The majority of the Legislative Administration Committee is recommending killing a bill Wednesday that would grant the legislative perk. A one-day lift ticket is $70 for an adult and the bill would allow unlimited free access. Opponents say using the free pass a half-dozen times would be worth twice as much as lawmakers’ biennial salary. Supporters argue that lawmakers have open access to state parks to promote awareness of the locations. They say skiing at Cannon doesn’t add costs to the ski area and encourages members to experience that part of New Hampshire culture.
