Tuckerman Ravine

Two and a half miles up the eastern slope of Mt. Washington, the highest peak in New England, liesTuckerman Ravine. A summit of 6,288 feet also brings with it, the highest skiing in this corner of the country.


A sunny day was the gift of the journey in mid-April; a little solitude and some adventure awaits. As you can see, the snow looks patchy at best at Wildcat Mountain Ski Area directly east of the ascent—also in the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire.



About two hours up from Pinkham Notch Visitor center, a group of shelters host up to 86 people a night. This is the first chance to really get a good luck at the main headwall, including this chute on the southern flank.

I was told by a forest ranger that Mt. Washington has one of the highest death tolls in the world. The accessability of the ascent—including a cog railroad and paved road—allows anyone to see the tremendous views. But for those unprepared for a drastic change in conditions, it can be trouble.

At the base of Tuckerman Bowl you can begin to see the gathering at Lunch Rock. Looks like that solitude is going to be tough to come by.
