I recently watched Meathead Film's documentary, Epoch. In it, the Meatheads climbed and skied the highest peaks in MA, NH, NY, ME, and VT. Of the five mountains they skied, I've skied 2, hiked 3, and seen 4. The only one I'd never seen or visited is Katahdin in Maine. I had never actually thought much about Katahdin, but after watching Epoch, I was flabbergasted. I always thought Washington and Tuckerman's presented the most challenging backcountry terrain in the East. Man, was I wrong. Katahdin is craggy, steep, and looks wicked challenging. One of the big challenges to Katahdin is its remoteness. You need to hike or skin something like 15 miles just to get to the base of the mountain.
In any case, I'm very curious if any Bears have ever skied Katahdin, and if so, what was their experience. It looks amazing, I'd love to hear some first hand experience.
Some pictures from Katahdin for the curious. Gnarly, eh?
