Mittersill Cannon

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

This year cannon is adding a lift to the mittersill area. I fear this will draw more skiers into the backcountry area. Does any one know what part of the area is least likely to loose its powder.

Are you serious? If an 'answer' gets posted on the internet... forget it.

 

... but I don't ski Cannon anymore so what the heck, I'd say Gunsight.

It's a really sweet backcountry line at Cannon/Mittersill, that's what you were looking for, right? An area that won't get skied out too fast by the hoards of clueless tourists who haven't put in the time to learn the mountain, they just want to show up and ski the locals (who maintain the lines) powder?

 

I'm betting Gunsight will be hard for non-locals to find, so it will get tracked out slower. That was my answer.

Nobody is going to post the directions to their "secret stash" on Mittersill or anywhere else on the internet.  Poke around, befriend a local and find the goods.

Put in some time at the area, be nice to the locals and if you are cool to them they will show you the goods, if not... well, I'm not gonna help. Sorry. East coast BC lines exist because of hard work by anonymous folk who put there blood sweat and tears into it, they risk legal trouble and banishment from the areas they love in order to have a chance at fresh snow. Posting directions on the internet would be incredibly disrespectful. 

 

 

I'm not TRYING to be a jerk (it comes naturally to me, what can I say), I'm just saying- Pay Your Dues... and paying for a lift ticket is NOT it.
