New Meetup: Ski Tuckerman's Ravine - Mt Washington, New Hampshire

From: Dave
Sent on: Monday, February 22, 2010 9:11 AM
Announcing a new Meetup for The New York Metro Rock Climbing Meetup Group (NYC, NJ,CT)!

What: Ski Tuckerman's Ravine - Mt Washington, New Hampshire

When: Thursday, April 8,[masked]:00 PM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Please note!! This trip is a private trip being opened up to our Meetup group by Dave (asst organizer). It's not sponsored or associated with this meetup group in any way. Participants assume full responsibility.

Take a long weekend and ski or board legendary Tuckerman's Ravine on Mt Washington and hike the White Mountains. Tuckeman's offers the radest backcountry skiing in the east (or maybe anywhere). This time of year we should be able to ski back down the famed Sherburne Trail. The Sherburne runs parallel to the trail that we hiked up in the morning, with the same 2000 ft vertical from the bottom of the ravine to Pinkham notch. Classic New England backcountry skiing! Join what is possibly the most amazing collection of outdoor lunatics anywhere. People routinely pack in kegs of beer for the occasion! biggrin

WARNING! Tuckerman's is extreme, hard core skiing. This outing is not for beginner skiers or hikers. The hike to the bottom of the ravine takes about 2 hours. You carry all your gear up 2000 elevation. Then you'll carry your skis up the headwall as high as you have the nerve to ski down. The pitch at Tuckerman's is as much as 50 degrees so you'll need expert level skiing or boarding skills to participate. Tuckerman's is not the place to figure you'll just go for it.

We'll do Tuckerman's on Friday or Saturday, depending on weather. On the day we don't do Tuckerman's there's the option of skiing Cannon Mtn. Sunday we'll do a local hike, possibly Mt Moosalauke and return to NY in the late afternoon. Alternatively, we can ski Killington (if there's decent snow) and return from there.

We?ll leave Thursday evening and arrive at a rustic, lodge-like house in S. Newbury VT. Accommodations include 6 single beds, 2 double/queen beds and 2 couches in large sleeping lofts. Pillows and cases are provided, but bring your sleeping bag and towels.
Beds are $75 if we get 8 or more, otherwise $85. Couches are $65, but only after beds are filled. I can provide transportation for 5 or 6 people + gear.
