    Default Faster than skiing

    Was up at Cannon Mountain today.

    If you thought skiing was the fastest way down, think again...

    Keep close to Nature's heart...
    and break clear away, once in awhile,
    and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.
    Wash your spirit clean. - John Muir

    Nice.

    We used to race the tram down at Snowbird. Not sure we ever beat it, but it was close. Something like 8 minutes and 3,200 vertical.

    I think it's neat to see the changes in forest type both right after the second tower, and again halfway down the final pitch...

    Neat video!

    Never went up it this summer.

    I wanted to shoot one in winter on the snowcat, but never heard back from the Obs

    You need an early morning ride up with the crew at a steady speed with no other cars.
