Today was better than in Feb. Snow was very light. At least 18+. Woods are in play but need to ski light as there was now base down low. No wind either today.

Thank you for all who gave advice! We had a GREAT day on Saturday (until the power went out at 2:30). My 8- and 6-year-olds had a blast on all the steep stuff, and were blown away by the massive (compared to BW) terrain park! The 3-year-old loved being able to take lessons, and LOVED skiing next to the cliffs with the ice falls on Middle Ravine. The weather was great, the snow was great, the people were great, and the mountain was AWESOME. We'll certainly be frequenting it more often!

Bretton Woods and Loon are so much better!

Wow. I think everyone was at Ragged. Busiest weekends there with cheap liftopia and $250 season's pass. Cannon better get on the stick. Maybe I'll be at Cannon THIS weekend. Maybe not. I'd rather stand in line with a pass that I broke even on in Dec than pay full rate really. Plus I've got a free pass that I promised to my brother to use the weekend anyway.

Great day at Cannon today! Starting to get very thin in places. Skied a lot at Mittersill. Found some really cool trees and nice soft snow. ImageUploadedByAlpineZone1490137381.931199.jpgImageUploadedByAlpineZone1490137403.782258.jpgImageUploadedByAlpineZone1490137448.300606.jpg

Yo, I like warm chocolate chip cookies, but only once per year.

Just want better, more consistent grooming. Thanks for the snowmakers - awesome this year! Much appreciated. Please train the groomers on how to handle it. Groomers -> make it flat. Please.

Any other opinions on grooming?

Haha grooming. ! It will be flat in June

Before the snowmaking upgrade I was thinking they should be sending the snowmakers and groomers to Killington for training.
Snowmaking has improved but damn Helen Keller could do better grooming

It's consistently poor at best.
Skiing it every weekend you get used to it. Low expectations are set but I guess you have to take what the groomers give you !
