Cannon 4-19

Date(s) Skied: 4/19/2015

Resort or Ski Area: Cannon Mountain

Conditions: Spring, Firm and then soft and warm.

Trip Report: I did make it out to Cannon yesterday morning for a few hours, before I had to head back to Massachusetts to spend time with family for my birthday. But I did get in 8 quality runs. Also my apologies to Mishka, who I know wanted to carpool up from RI - but not knowing when I was going to leave in the AM and then having to get back for birthday cake and dinner just didn't quite fit into the equation. But I promise next time (Killington in a week or two?) we will definitely car pool up! I do want to check out his skis!

Onto the goods... I got up Cannon by 9:15, and there certainly was a buzz in the air. Sunny and 36 when I got there, upper cannon was still on delay. Everything was firm starting out in the morning. But by 10ish, it began to soften up and the top was open. The run of the day must have been Ravine (upper, middle and lower)... Cannon (upper, middle and lower) skied very well. and as always Tramway is the most scenic run this side of the whites. Skied to 12, when I grabbed a beer and had to head back to the flatlands for birthday cake.
