When I say the trail needs to have the rock knocked down the hardcore skiers get mad. If it's going to be a trial make it skiable. Blast the rocks out this summer, nuke it and pave. I skied the bottom (400 yds) in 1982.
Cannon had to make it a trail because the insurance company.had them clear the trail so you could evaluate the tram in an energy.

As mentioned in another life time, the light at the top is spooky.

I spend too much on skis and healthcare to slay...

Meow, just because a dog can jump a fence doesn't mean it will.

I'm sure glad you all got out on the hill its skiing sooo good right now! I took the day off as I'm in the middle of VACA and need a rest day before the next chaos rolls in. Were the whales still out mid mtn? They clobbered the place late with snowmaking.

Yea I’ve never skied cannon with as consistently good conditions as I got today. Really worked the place. Such fun steep tree skiing when the snow is in!

so for 20 i was trying to get to the trees above golden birches glade. i skied the lift line and took the first right into the woods. i presume i was just under the thrush protection zone.. i thought i would end up at top of birches but i ended up getting spat out on barons way higher than golden birches. the approach is narrow, like a ski wide, and sort of steep, but then once you see barons you can turn into a really nice open glade, until you are eventually spat out onto barrons


28 i was looking for whiskey towne. i ended up getting into it too high. i wouldnt recommend. its tight singletrack stuff and not very fun. they actually had a somewhat permanent rope blocking off the entrance i used.

LOL hence why I ate shit long ago. You did indeed work that hill pretty fucking good for a guy coming from far away. Those skinny ones you did off the top of Mittersill are skiing super fun this week...

This last few weeks have been some of the best skiing in years...we just had to pay our icecoast dues I guess.

Some footage of DJs Tramline from last week, coverage looks pretty good. Also the skiers are not that great but still survived, so that gives me hope that it is doable if taken slowly. Edit: also note shortcut through woods back to main base at 10:20, since tram was not running. If you take that shortcut and miss the very bottom of DJs, can you still say you have skiied “all of DJs Tramline” ?

I was supposed to go to Cannon with my friends tomorrow (Saturday) but it appears like the tickets are sold out. Do I have any options at this point or am I out of luck?

Don’t know how Cannon caps their sales. If it makes you feel better, you could be the luckiest of your group by NOT skiing a sold out mountain. 🤣

Right where I want to be
No lift lines today except zoomer which was maybe 6 chairs deep x 4. If that is sold out I would never worry about it being crowded.
Started out icy as fuck but turned into some great spring skiing on the front 5 by 11 or so.
Shit ton of skis outside the Peabody lodge. Everyone was there to see Bodie I guess

Cannons sell out is pretty mild I'm told and they're pretty quick to shut sales down.

Compared to Killington on Saturday, crowded and dangerous with a late opening and limited open runs, Cannon was 100 times better on Sunday. I could only ski till 11 am but got in 19 runs and 18,000 vert on the groomers. Ripping Profile was a blast, so too was Avalanche-no crowds-no lift lines.
