Hey everyone-

What's up with Mt. Washington? Can't someone tame the mountain's weather? I'm suppost to go up this weekend, but supposedly up to 2 feet could fall on the ravine by Fri. Hope it's less, so there's no avi danger! Anyway- just thought i'de mention this. Anyone elce doing Tuckerman's (or tuckerman..whatever) Ravine this year?

I'm still hitting lift-served terrain, but thinking about doing tucks in May or June. I've done it twice in May over the years but this year June should still be prime as well.

Riverside- Did you stay overnight when you did Tucks? I'm going to do that- but want to make sure I get there early enough to get space- there willl be 3 of us. If you did stay over- when did you get there? THX

BG- your going to have a blast. I just got back yesteray. When I got to the base it was spitting snow- but then it cleared up. Got to the visiters center at 6:30 (so I didn't have to worring about spots at Hermit Lake Shelters) and got to the leantos really early. It was still foggy so I slept until two- then woke up to sunny skies. For the rest of the trip there was not a cloud in the sky. SKied the headwall twise and then Right Gully once- IT WAS SWEET. The ravine is just massive- spetacular(sp) place to be. Falling ice was not a problem- and the snow conditions were great the second day. The first day my brother fell from the middle of thr heldwall to the base- about 900 verticle- then got up and skied it the next day. We had a blast! Anyway- hope who ever elce is going will have weather like we did!

we're hoping to get there by 2pm on friday and get a spot in the leantos-if not, we'll stay in the lodge. I imagine you could ski all the way down to the trailhead?

Yup- the Sherbern SKi Trail was covered with PLENTY of snow. Took about 5 minutes to get down.
