About Alison Swift (owner family member)
I am the youngest of Hop and Pam Swift's 5 daughters. My parents bought our Chalet in 1963 and our family spent many happy ski seasons skiing at Mittersill and Cannon; skiing over the saddle from the top of Cannon to the top of Mittersill and from the Cannon Rathskellar (after a few beers) on the X-country trails back home (on downhill skis). Our Chalet is a perfect house for entertaining, playing games and relaxing with a big or small group; Our house has unique characteristics; including a Moose (Elmer), bongo drums and a balcony overlooking the living room where we had to entertain our parents friends at their cocktail hour with music or skits. In our lifetimes, we've watched Mittersill close and reopen, the 'Old Man of the Mountain' fall and the Franconia Notch Parkway replace the old route that passed Clark's trained bears. It is still as wonderful as ever and we still convene all of our families there between Xmas and New Years.

What makes this chalet unique
The views from the breakfast table are beautiful any time of the year. The water comes from a babbling brook on the side of the house and the air is clear and fresh. The area is peaceful and relaxing and very cozy on a snowy evening, especially with a big warm fire in the huge living room.
