News has reached me that Cannonsburg (the ski area of my youth) has been sold.  The decrepit area is now the possesion of a lawyer from Petoskey.  I don’t have any clue as to how this will effect the day to day operations (this whole post is an excuse to post the picture above), but knowing how the previous owners seemed content to let the place rot I can’t imagine things will get much worse.  I’m only worried that Cannonsburg traditons like breakless rental skis, groups of five riding a quad chair, busses of Indiana drunks, meth smoking lifties and derailed T-bars may become things of the past.  (Hat Tip to First Tracks)
