    Camera Cannon 4-19

    Date(s) Skied: 4/19/2015

    Resort or Ski Area: Cannon Mountain

    Conditions: Spring, Firm and then soft and warm.

    Trip Report: I did make it out to Cannon yesterday morning for a few hours, before I had to head back to Massachusetts to spend time with family for my birthday. But I did get in 8 quality runs. Also my apologies to Mishka, who I know wanted to carpool up from RI - but not knowing when I was going to leave in the AM and then having to get back for birthday cake and dinner just didn't quite fit into the equation. But I promise next time (Killington in a week or two?) we will definitely car pool up! I do want to check out his skis!

    Onto the goods... I got up Cannon by 9:15, and there certainly was a buzz in the air. Sunny and 36 when I got there, upper cannon was still on delay. Everything was firm starting out in the morning. But by 10ish, it began to soften up and the top was open. The run of the day must have been Ravine (upper, middle and lower)... Cannon (upper, middle and lower) skied very well. and as always Tramway is the most scenic run this side of the whites. Skied to 12, when I grabbed a beer and had to head back to the flatlands for birthday cake.

    Here are the photos:

    Happy birthday, Bostonian! Is that your birthday song? It was my birthday too; I have a relevant Beatles song. "When I get older . . . "

    Wonderful photos too.

    We left around 2. It was a bummer to leave but I got to see my son play Lacrosse and win 5-4. Still, I would of liked to stay to the end of a closing day for once. Darn sports! Were there still some on your roof?

    BTW we bought our seasons passes again - we were very happy with Cannon this year - hopefully next year is just as good! Need more Zoomer Bar days though!

    Really nice seeing everyone - wished we could have done some runs.

    Awesome season for Cannon. Had a great time learning the mtn better and the camaraderie is first rate. Awesome community up there combined with some of the best terrain on the East Coast! Passholder in 16-17 is the plan!

    It was a great day. Finished off the last chair to the top of Zoomer chair at 3:58 and last run on Paulie's. Last of the the year still skiing thru the woods to Zoomer bar.

    Yes great day ! Only regret was not applying sunscreen !! The 3rd beer on the lunch break wasn't too smart either.

    Still a ton of snow up there, shame it's over.

    Your hazing has not started yet. We have not tried to kill you yet.
