    All the low angle stuff was incredi-balls. Got first tracks on Pixie, HOM, lower Red Line, and fresh tracks seemingly everywhere. Only about 50 people on the hill so still plenty of untouched until the afternoon. A little crusty/hard under some of the steeper terrain (Tali, Trick, HOM) but Up Your Sleeve, Medium, left side of Black Line, upper half of Broomstick, and lower section of Red Line were worth repeating (think I hit Up Your Sleeve 3-4 times). Could absolutely bomb down with no worries.

    Met an old ski buddy that I haven't seen in 20 years at the tram and got first tram. The wind was hollowing up through the notch in the parking lot. Got to the top and the wind was coming over the top of the mountain. Hit upper Cannon first. the top 100 feet was windblown ice but after that it skied okay. Skied off the cannonball all except Profile which did not look very pleasant and the glades. Everything except Skylight skied well mostly on the edge. Vista Way was the best out of them. Then headed down to the front the edge of zoomer was fine. Gary's was in okay shape. Polly's skied the best. Rocket was a little wind blown and Avalanche was a sheet of ice. I could only manage 2 turns on it so needless to say it was a fast trip down. My buddies knee was aching a little at this point so we took a break and then took an after break warm up run down lower Hard which actually had the best snow of the day on it. Went back to the top for a few runs which were not as good as the morning runs. Went in at the top and had a few beers. While in there it started to snow. Took a few more runs at the top but the falling snow didn't make it any better and his knee was aching a lot more so we skied back to the tram and called it quits at 2.

    I know the guy in question. He is a total asshole, and I don't know anybody from Stowe who knows him and isn't like "yeah, that makes sense."

    Pleasantly cold, empty and edgable. Its a venerable ghosttown in this joint. 2-3" late yesterday groomed into fantastic runs this am. We did some snow shoeing yesterday along the saco which was fun too. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Ive only skied there 2 times this year on my Peaks pass, only negative as you mentioned is the lift. The trails are pretty good with a decent mix of steep groomers. They groom and make snow as good as anyone and can recover from the crap weather of last week pretty fast. I honestly think they are a great addition to the peaks pass for when the cat is on wind holds, they seem to be more protected. I liked it and will be going back for sure, they had some really good Hot Cocoa on Spillway Saturday !!

    Cold and dry yesterday. I decided to write off trees and ungroomed, brought only the frontside skis, and ran the groomed all day. Groomers were scratchy but still edgeable. An upside to a hard refreeze after rain is that the groomers can't develop ice moguls - it all just stays flat ice! [emoji38] I did one lap on middle Hard which was in better shape than I expected. It wouldn't surprise me if surfaces in the woods were in decent shape. Upper Hard, groomed. IDK if this is rare but it was my first time:

    Quick video edit of the first 2hrs. After that things got 'woodsy' and the cam didn't come out. Something messed up with the audio and I don't have the time or patience to fix it. Hum your favorite song.... Edit: Audio repaired, new link. Not sure how much it adds to the experience, you still may want to hum your favorite song....

    Someone needs to start a running 2018/19 Attitash thread. Just being honest and not being judgemental, that place has been 100% off my radar for about 25 years and I kind of assumed it was on it's way out considering the available options to the east and west. But all of a sudden there seems to be lots of reports and mentions popping up on this site. All of which are positive (except the triple chair issue). So I guess I'd just like to see more of the running hype/love/appeal of the place. Maybe change my preconceived and uninformed perceptions.

    We were there yesterday as well, and I was very glad I had just sharpened my edges! The wind was pretty brutal, and my smaller kids were getting physically blown around at the top, so we stuck to the mid-mountain. After lunch when the snow started falling, the light was so flat I felt like I couldn't see anything, and the snow just covered the exposed ice but didn't actually improve conditions, so we called it quits just after 1. It looks like there will be some snow tomorrow into Wednesday, improving things considerably for the weekend!

    Today at Cannon was not kick ass. The top had a wind blown crust on the edges but when it got skied up was okay. Lots of the normal ice spots. Lost boy glade had good snow but needed breaking up. Lower mtn was okay but dust on crust. Weird chunks under 2 inches of nice powder Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports

    Will you drink more if snow impact is worse in sadness or if snow impact is minimal in celebration? I haven't been to a ski area today but in Lakes Region, snow banks are still significantly high and the lawn is nowhere to be seen. So it wasn't a complete melt down. Temps never got above the 30s while it was raining, just cresting at 40* right now and the rain has stopped. Overall, it looks worse than I expected but not bad at all compared to many January thaws in the past. Plus it all freezes up soon.

    Had a great 4 days of skiing at Cannon while staying at Mittersill. Sat 1/19 just took 4 runs at Mittersill side by myself. Conditions were good before the storm. Skied ridgeline/Skyline/Dragons drop, Barron's and Liftline twice. Then did over 10k of X-country skiing at Bretton Woods with the wife. Sun 1/20 - Powder and snowed all day. Started on the t-bar at mittersill with my 15 yo son as double was on hold. Then older son and wife met up with us and we all made our way to front 5 for a few runs then the cannonball opened (split with the wife as she didn't want to go to the top) and took some runs at the top and then headed down Kinsman to the tram. DJ's wasn't open yet but then it opened as we got to the Tram. It looked like mayhem. Body strewed out everywhere. The worst looked like just below the first tower. Decided not to do it and worked our way up the saddle instead and got shown the way down the backside (tuckerbrook) and back to the Mittersill village to have lunch and a few beers at the condo. We had fresh up and over my knees down through the river bed. After lunch (wife was done for the day)took a few runs at Mittersill and worked our way back to Cannon and to the top. Skied the top glades - go green and global warming which were incredible then finished out the day with another awesome run off the saddle back to Mittersill. Took a little different route and before the river bed cut right into the glades and hit the traverse closer to the road. Got out around 4:15. I want to thank the guys who showed us the way in and back. Mon - 1/21 - Wife stayed in as the cold and wind was pretty brutal. Cannonball and Peabody never opened but the tram was open to get you to the top. Took it some what easy for the day but did get first chair at Mittersill and skied lift line, candy land as well as skyline and baron's at mittersill before getting over to the front five and hitting up the tram (skied lost boys) . Skied until 2 and then decided to go in to the condo and have lunch and then called it a day. Tues 1//22 - Kids went home Monday night so the wife and I skied. I got out around 9:30 and I skied on Mittersill. She came out around 10:15. Hit the Mittersill, front five. The Cannon ball wasn't running but they opened the tram which I haven't seen open on a Tuesday in a long time. The wind was hollowing at the top so only did the one tram run and then a few runs on the Peabody which I never really take runsoff and just use a transportation to get to Cannonball and Zoomer. Went in for lunch then came back out and took 3 runs off the double and called it a day around 3:15.
