These views are historical, and while some still exist, other views are long gone. NH’s state emblem, the Old Man of the Mountains, collapsed on May 3, 2003. The original 24-passenger 1938 Cannon Mountain Tramway (#3) was replaced with a new 70-passenger tram in 1980. Cranmore replaced its 1938 Skimobile lift (#7) with a high speed quad chairlift in 1989. Wildcat replaced its 1958 Gondola (#9) in 1997. Interestingly, the Wildcat replacement, a high speed quad chairlift in the winter, is converted to a 4-passenger gondola for sightseers during the summertime.
Still in operation are the Mount Washington Cog Railway (#8) and the M/S Mount Washington cruise ship (#5) on Lake Winnipesaukee. And NH’s beautiful natural landscapes – the Flume Gorge (#1), Crawford Notch (#4), Squam Lake and Red Hill (#6), Mt. Chocorua (#10) – all endure.
