    Funny thing, my GF just will not warm up to Sunday River. I've had uncannily bad luck with her there with conditions (icy or slushy, which she hates) and crowds when there should be no crowds. The place scares her.

    I take her to Cannon for the first time 2 seasons ago and we get a surprise 4 inches of fresh and she has a friggin blast. Looooves Cannon, she says. SR scares her and she's fine with Cannon. Go figure.

    My wife and I used to ski SR a lot back in the early to mid 90's it was great. Then something happened there in the late 90's early 00's. (Down fall of ASC most likely). Their snowmaking and trail up keep went to hell. She hates it now. We have always both loved Cannon. We are going to ski SR the Sat of T-day but our expectations are low. Our 3 kids have never skied there so thought we would bring them.

    I Believe it was the winter of 81-82 or it could had been the previous year. Was at UNH early season storm dumped about 1.5 feet on campus on Monday or Tuesday (melted in a day) so we decided to blow off Friday classes and go skiing. So o Thursday I call late afternoon to make sure they are open, old new hampshirite answers and says yup got 3feet in the storm and around 2-3 feet I flurries the rest of the week. Driving up no snow anywhere, go around the corner of profile lake and boom 8' snow banks. First car in the tram lot, on first tram only had one trail groomed on the lower peabody side and maybe 75 skiers. Had untracked bottomless all day.

    Just came from a great Simmer 'n Brew event at the mountain. Really good night of music, beer, and food. BUT they had their 2014/15 trail maps out. Some unfortunate stuff added to the map. Some previous stashes are now marked. And some stupid trail-count BS has been included. Apparently they're a little embarrassed about this since they haven't updated their online maps. Oh well, so it goes, not surprising but a little disappointing.

    Damn, where can they really go as far as boosting trail counts? Seems like they've already tacked names on every little piece of real estate on the hill!!!

    The added Goat Path back to the map and the blue section of Lower Cannon is now Rock Garden. A small glade off Snowmaker's called Lil Bertha. And three glades of Mid and Lower Hard. I will post the map.

    Cannon sucks. The regulars don't even ski full days there.
    I also do the Twitters.
