If you do find some good skiing, chances are good that the on mountain ski club has full use of it. Combine that with terribly slow chairs, (only one detach and it is run at regular chair speed so very slow) no attention whatsoever to day ticket purchasers and you've got Cannon. Probably not a bad place to be a local at if you don't need the intermediate trails that the club usurps or don't mind spending most of the day on the lift. Snow making is all over the place and very inconsistent...I doubt they have much of a budget. Considering the time it takes to use the upper chair, they probably should have just opened the bottom of the mountain. They are ill equipped to get snow on the whole place. I believe gun capacity probably 15 or 20. I won't go back.
