    Clearly it's Cannnon

    Granted, I don't ski at that many areas but unlike Waterville, Magic and Bretton Woods, Cannon has the bathrooms on the main floor so I don't have to walk up and down stairs in ski boots so it's the...

    Cannon, 3/24

    Cannon was pretty great today. Lots of sun and snow (obviously), everything open. The only icy bits were at a few of the busiest intersections (like Link) and Hardscrabble, which was ice and bumps....

    This is dead on. A guy died after losing control on a black at Cannon last week - Profile. It's a steep, long bomber. It's nowhere near as hard as a black at Magic IMO but that's partly because it is...

    Any indication that somebody died up there yesterday? I'd assume they're not exactly publicizing it but I could also see put some flowers out or something.

    Christ, he must have slid right through the Cannonball lift area then off that lip. I don't have a tactful way to put this but you simply shouldn't have that much speed at the bottom of Profile......

    Another death at Cannon yesterday per the news. No details but it was reported as a collision which is even sadder. Seems like Cannon has more deaths than the other big NH mountains for some reason.

    Interesting but any idea on capacity? Some of that is small, slow stuff like Granite Gorge, Blanford, etc... closing I'd assume.

    Follow up - anyone been to Magic this weekend? Thinking of heading up there Thursday or Friday. How thin and icy is 'thin with icy base' exactly?

    So more or less lifts?

    I don't ski a huge range of areas - western Whites, Wa-Wachusett,... Of those, the new gondola at Bretton is I think the only recent addition in the past decade? Much like...

    Waterville was pretty great today. Other than Wayne's and Ciao which were basically sheets of stiff skied off ice/snow substrate, everything else was excellent. The new tow at the high country was...

    This is a bizarre comp though - sure it takes 3.5 hours to get to SB from Boston but again you can get to all of the NH areas for a shorter drive as well as the southern VT areas.

    Sad but also I don't understand where there's a "250' waterfall anywhere on Cannon'. Ripley and Arethusa are the tallest waterfalls up there and they top out at around 80' as I recall.
