The new Taft Superslope is starting to take shape, as the months long massive clearing project continues.

A significant portion of the slope has been cut, while additional widening has taken place on a trail between the Mittersill lift line and Baron's Run. According to the project maps released by the State of New Hampshire, further cutting will be conducted on the Taft Superslope before it reaches its full footprint.

In addition to this year's trail widening, snowmaking is expected to be installed on Baron's Run. State management has also announced it will be building a new dam on Echo Lake for snowmaking purposes.

The half mile long Taft Superslope will be roughly 300-400 feet wide, making it the widest trail in New Hampshire. Facing the same direction as the wind scoured Cannonball slope, the Taft Superslope will be more than twice Cannonball's width.

According to the agreement with the state, the Franconia Ski Club will have use of the superslope Friday-Sunday, while the Holderness School and Franconia Ski Club have use on Monday-Thursday.

While initially pitched as a fully privately funded expansion, Cannon General Manager John DeVivo announced in January plans to use previously allocated New Hampshire General Fund dollars on Mittersill related projects in 2015.
