I just skied the ridge this past weekend. I skied it late Sunday and there were only a few tracks up there even at the end of the weekend ,so it doesn't see a lot of action. I imagine this is because it's not easily access terrain from what I saw. You can climb the stairs, hike about 50 feet over rocks, then ski the rest of the way across the ridge to the drop in at pumphouse. This past weekend, the drop in was maybe a 25ft or bigger exposed rock face with some ice coverage (anyone know the varying size of this depending upon conditions? Looks bigger up top for sure!). You have room for one or two hop turns then you have to straight line the rest of it cliff face. After that, it was the best snow I had seen all weekend. Untouched, steep, trees.
Maybe this area is a local secret, or maybe people don't know much about it because it is intimidating and off the beaten path. I only skied it because I hooked up with two locals who I followed down. I would not have skied it alone, nor would I have gone down without seeing someone familiar with the terrain go first. It made the face and tuckermans feel a bit trivial. Definitely fun skiing if you have a partner and are looking for some thrills.
