Tuckerman Ravine can be one of the most challenging places in the White Mountains of New Hampshire — whether you are hiking up or skiing down. Bone up on this backcountry bowl and the spring skiing experience it offers.
Weather and Current Conditions
The ravine's character and history are worth understanding so as to get the most out of your trip.
The weather on Mount Washington can be erratic, so check conditions before you go — and also at the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center once you arrive in the area.
Spring Skiing Safety
Avalanches, crevasses, and other hazards make these ungroomed slopes a challenge even for expert skiers.
Preparing for the Ravine Experience
The right food, water, clothing, and gear can help make your trip more enjoyable and safe; so can knowing about the terrain and shelter in the area.
Enjoy pre- and post-ski hospitality at Joe Dodge Lodge, stay at nearby Harvard Cabin, or find backcountry shelter at Hermit Lake Shelters.
