Back to Cannon Mountain to hike it this time on a very humid day. Trail is strenuous with some difficult parts. Some looked part of old ski runs. Plus if you didn't want to hike back down you could pay for the Tram.

If you can ski or board Cannon Mountain you can ski any place. Typically very firm/icy conditions however if you can hit the slops early AM you will be fine. Best if skied right after a snowfall.
