    See, that's the thing ... unless you could go up Dave's Detour to either Tramway or Vista Way. A Mittersill route might be good.

    Not so sure upper cannon would be a good option. Very twisty and lots of blind spots

    Fair enough.With all the complaining on this thread about the Mittersill upgrades this sure sounds like more of the same.You do know non racers will be able to use this trail at times also right?If it were not for the new snowmaking on Mittersill this past year it never would have opened.

    I've said before in this thread that I appreciated having Mittersill open this year, which obviously wouldn't have happened without the snowmaking. With that being said the training slope doesn't do anything for me, it looks like a boring trail and it's ugly as hell to be honest. If all the work their doing this summer is on that particular trail then they're not doing anything that will personally benefit me.

    True, but that's not really what I had in mind when talking about off season improvements.

    Don't forget, Cannon will still be training on Gary's and Time Zone even if FSC trains primarily on Baron's and the new training slope. So I imagine there will still be kids racing on the front side. Although the traffic will be significantly less.

    Huh. Like what teams? I would expect Holderness to be over on the new area too.

    Cannon has its seasonal programs, which I am sure you are aware of. However, most people don't realize that when the kids get older they set up brushes, stubbies, gates etc. and are actually training. It often looks like FSC to many, but its not. Its actually the mountain doing their own thing.

    ok. You made it would like a racing program. But they don't close the runs for those.
