Cannon 2/17/2018

Recommended Posts

We had quite the crew at Cannon today, with a solid group of 13. Some demographics:

- Ages: Teens x4, 20s x4, 30s x1, 40s x2, 50s x2

- Gender: M x10, F x3

- Gear: Skis x4, snowboard x9

- NMS representation: @puckit@ABV@fcksummer

 

Coverage: very good across all trails and woods. Unfortunately too firm to get off of the groomers.

 

Range of opinions about conditions:. “it's not that great” to “it's not that bad” to “it’s pretty good”

 

Early morning conditions: 15-18 degrees. Clear and sunny. No wind. Well groomed everywhere. Very fast! Fun to carve the wide open groomers.

 

Late morning conditions: low 20s. Clear and sunny. Conditions starting to soften. Still dominated by grooming, but some looser snow available on the edges.

 

Afternoon conditions: low 20s. Thin overcast. Conditions firmed up with lack of sun. Hard pack, ice showing through. Increasingly sketchy.

 

Overall a fun, fast day. Good company made it a longer day than I would have stuck with if I were solo. Grill, beer, etc were at least as good as the skiing.

 

New snow could quickly change it from OK to Great! Loss of snow could quickly change it from OK to awful.

 

Looking at 2-4” by tomorrow morning that could be a nice game changer.
