CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s House has postponed action on a bill that would have ended free ski days at Cannon Mountain for residents age 65 and older.

The House voted 190-150 to table the bill, which means it can be brought back this session. Opponents objected that the tradition of giving older New Hampshire residents free access to the mountain Monday through Friday should be preserved.

The bill would give older residents free access to day use parks, historical sites, beaches and state-operated ski areas. The free admission would not apply to uphill devices including ski lifts and trams or enterprise areas like the Flume Gorge.

The bill would end free admission for lawmakers, legislative staff, the governor, executive councilors and governor’s staff unless the purpose of the visit was official business.
