Route: Mittersill-Cannon Trail, Short Trail

Trails had some dry stretches, as well as some areas of slippery exposed ledge from equipment created erosion. Lots of construction going on at Mittersill, as the state decided to transform the backcountry ski area into a semi-private race complex with wide trails (clearing in progress).

Cold fall winds at the summit tower!
