    Here's a cool video from L'alpe D'Huez in France of what it's like to ski a groomed run from top to bottom in the Alps. Keep in mind, a lot of the off piste terrain is lift accessed too.

    I'm fine with the way Cannon is owned and operated, except they open late and close early. Only four more years and I will be able to ski there for free on weekdays, what more could anyone want?

    The main routes will get skied off, but I'm sure skiing will be great due to the amount of snow they got. I would think the edges will still be very good, although bumped up more. If they groom...

    Great trip, I've always wanted to go there too. Have you ever been by the Biathlon Ski Center in Presque Isle, about 50 miles away? I want to check that place out too? Would be a fun trip?
