Cannon Mountain Ski Area flagged during state audit when free ski pass issuance went undocumented
FRANCONIA - Cannon Mountain Ski Area has been asked to change some of their operations after being flagged during a state audit, due to lacking documentation of free ski pass issuance.
According to concordmonitor.com, the state-owned ski mountain "lost $27,000 in sales when it failed to fix problems with its credit card billing system in 2013, failed to take advantage of over one third of the discounts to which it was entitled from vendors in 2014 and operated its internet e-commerce system which generated about $800,000 in annual sales, partly through the password and username of an employee who had left the company."
General ski passes and highly discounted seasonal passes were given to employees in which the mountain had limited information on, and is said to have equaled about 1/5 of all passes sold in 2014.
Chairman of the House Resources and Recreation and Development Committee, Chris Christensen told the paper that the mountain is "trying to clean up procedures.”
Christensen also said that there was no evidence of inappropriate activity.
