I'm planning on skiing Cannon this Saturday. Is anyone else going to be there? Regulars? Irregulars? ;)

I haven't been since circa high school, so I am hoping to check out a bunch if stuff that wasn't in play then like the glades, tramline and mittersill. Let me know if you want to make some turns. I'd be happy to meet up!

If anyone wants to take a run or 2 together, let me know. It would be great to meet a few other AZers. PM me if you'd like. I'll be in black pants and a red jacket with a pony tail sticking out the back...

Should be to the Peabody lodge by 9 or so---I'll most likely get the 1st ski session while my wife watches our son.
Plan is to head to Tuckerbrook chair and head over to Mittersill. Guessing that is a faster way to access vs 2 chairs and a hike.

Fun day at Cannon yesterday. Met up with SaveMeASammy. Morning was tough as everything but the tram and Peabody went on wind hold. We missed the Mittersill chair by a few mins and had to bus back to the tram. Tram line was 3+ cars long so we skated over to zoomer. Skiing was variable mix of soft powder and dangerous ice. Taft skiers left was nice but most everything off the Peabody sucked. Wind and cold made it feel like January not late Match.
Afternoon the cannonball opened back up so we hit tramline. My 1st time down there. Its legit but snow was soft which helped.
Last run did upper hard to middle to lower.....Tim zipper lines those bumps! Great guy and skier.....We will do it again soon.

It was great to get out there and ski with you, Chris! You're a pretty good skier yourself ;) Vista to Tramline was a blast, and was the rotd for me. Hardscrabble was good too with those nice, soft bumps. The natural was better than I thought it would be, and the man made runs were rougher than I expected. Too bad about mittersill. I bet it would have been excellent.

We also got to meet bumpsis. He came up to do a half-day, but with only the tram and Peabody running, he opted for a hike instead. At the least, it was great to meet you bumpsis. It's nice to put a face to a name!

Props to you guys for sticking with it yesterday. Sorry I missed you. We had visions of first tram, but my buddies who were visiting were moving too slow to make that reality. They actually never even made it to Cannon, we gave up on them and got there around 9:15 just as the wind was coming up. Even for Cannon that was some insane wind. We did Taft, Paulie's, and Gary's which were all really nice. But lifts starting shutting down at that point so we bailed for an early lunch, then ended up bailing on the rest of the day.

We ended up at Loon for the afternoon. Conditions there were really sweet with soft carveable snow and steady snowfall.

The pleasure was all mine. Gentlemen, you are hardcore! The wind was just vicious. I felt bad opting out, but the prospects of just skiing off Peabody with the possibility of the Tram going on wind hold again was less than optimal.

The huge wind and the ensuing blizzard seemed localized just to Cannon. I drove just a couple of miles down to the Basin and took a hike up Cascade Brook trail (towards Kinsman Pond). From the bottom and well up the mountain, it just a tranquil and serene hike in the snowy woods with snow just gently falling. No wind! Cannon seems to have its own weather :)

It was really nice to meet you both. Keep me in mind for next possible session that may present itself. I'm really looking forward to a spring corn harvest sometime soon.

Sorry we did not meet up with you guys. We bagged it with Cannonball after lunch in the pub. Poutine was awesome.

Yup, couldn't have said it better. Thanks for the ride home. It made the difference between a fun morning and epic full day.
