Cannon & Bretton 12/20-12/21

Part 1. Surprised to see no Cannon report for Saturday as I'm sure several were there. My plans changed a little as I had to work late Friday night, however things worked out great. Left NNJ at 4:30 am to head to NH and pick up the boy who finished his 1st semester at PSU. Smooth sailing drive up through Ct, Mass, and NH put us at Plymouth just after 9 am. A little internet searching showed Cannon had a nice priced 1/2 day so we drove up through the Notch and up to Peabody Lodge. The hour wait for 1/2 day ticket to go on sale was appreciated winding down from the drive. Wife's 1st day out this year with new skis so we started with a few Tuckerbrook runs. Moved over to Peabody Express for several and took Gary's down to Zoomer 1 time and Tram Cutback for a ride to the summit another time. Conditions were outstanding and it was nice to see the sun. About 2:30 to 3, the wife tired out and the boy and I went over and did Zoomer and Avalanche before heading to the Cannonball for an couple of apres.

Note as per the discussion the other day about shooting for the saddle. This guy was going for it.
