Cannon is truly a mountain for expert skiers. This does not mean that it isn't good for intermediates and even beginners, it just means that the expert terrain is exceptional. The front five are always fun to ski on, and are typically partially groomed so that you can go fast, especially my favorite-avalanche. Mittersill provides some natural skiing, but can be tracked up faster than one might think. Mittersill is a fun place to explore though. DJ's tramline provides a real challenge, although it is not open often. Vista Way, off of the top of the mountain provides some of the best views on the mountain, although it is typically left ungroomed.
