    Agree.

    I agree with SIKSKIER on this. But I don't consider it a downer. Cannon builds a base in the tress faster than any other Mtn. This additionsal capacity should fill in Kinsman nicely!

    From what I remember Rocket was arguing for expenditure on snowmaking instead of the Mittersill chair
    Don't let the facts get in the way of the personal attacks though.

    And those are protable guns. Most of the tower guns are lower down. This is the Cannon Cloud!!!

    I don't think he'd like to be characterized as arguing FOR any expenditures at Cannon. He may have pointed out that snowmaking would be a better investment than the Mittersill lift IF you were going to spend money anyway.

    But I agree, no point beating him up if he isn't even in the conversation.

    What still amazes me is that he called his website taxpayersFORcannon.com. Odd use of words there compared to his overall point.
