CONCORD (AP) – Some fees at New Hampshire parks are going up this summer and next winter to offset rising costs.

The New Hampshire Joint lLegislative Fiscal Committee approved the fee increases Monday to help pay for fuel, liability and labor costs. The increases are expected to raise about $178,000.

The price to enter the Flume Gorge won’t change by itself, but summer visitors who buy discovery passes to the flume and Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway will pay $29 for adults and $23 for children – a $1 increase.

Riding the tramway also will cost $1 more.

Sen. Andy Sanborn, R-Bedford, asked how much the state is giving away in the form of discounts. Parks officials estimated about $400,000 in discounts are given to attract customers to Cannon Mountain Ski Area and area parks.

Most daily ski lift tickets will cost $2 more at Cannon next winter though the price for New Hampshire residents to ski on Wednesdays will remain unchanged at $25.

Season passes at Cannon will jump $11 from $165
to $176 for New Hampshire senior military residents.

The highest price season pass will jump $30 from $799 to $829 for adult non-residents.

Parks officials noted that the fee schedule represents the maximum amount that might be charged and could be adjusted to address market conditions.
