Comments CommentsAfter yesterday's trip to Cannon, I'll never discount the impact just an inch or two of snow can have again.

Although things seemed somewhat ominous early in the morning, with alternating ice/thick granular on Banshee and Rock Garden, things quickly improved as the day went on. By close, there was 2-3 inches of new snow across the mountain, with the highest amounts on Mittersill and near the summit of Cannon. This completely changed the snow surface, and led to an incredible day.

The best skiing was at Mittersill. After a morning race cleared out, it truly felt like a private ski area, with untracked powder and virtually nobody else around. Ridge Run/Skyline, Baron's Run, Taft, and Dragon's Drop all had great snow and excellent coverage, and we spent around half the day lapping the double chair (with a run off the T-Bar for old times sake). The front five were somewhat icy, but the new snow bonded to the surface really well and I had a good time on Paulie's Folly in particular. The summit area was hardpacked, but not icy, and Tramway in particular was a really fun run shortly before close. The mid-mountain trails were definitely a leg workout (even more so than everything else) because of how thick the loose granular was, but even they cleaned up nicely with the fresh snow. Middle Ravine to Turnpike was a nice cruising run to end the day. Didn't ski Tuckerbrook other than to access Mittersill, but the coverage was solid and it should be open for at least one more week.

Unless a big April snowstorm comes in, this was likely the last wintry ski day of the season, and the lack of crowds and fresh snow made it well worth the trip. Hopefully a spring trip to Killington and/or Sugarbush later in April will be a nice way to end the year.
