Steep descents, treacherous crevasses, avalanche conditions and unpredictable weather all earn “Tucks” its reputation as a formidable backcountry ski destination.
Nothing beats the sheer adrenalin rush of barreling down a 40-pitch slope through up to 50 feet of snow blown into the bowl by the fierce winds off the summit.
As the first snowflakes start fly, our thoughts suddenly turn to the mountains. The hardcore skiers among us are thinking only of those groomed trails of perfect powder, or the quiet that envelops us while skiing on a narrow, backwoods track.
Spring skiing is the ideal way to get away from it all, and engage in a bit of rest and relaxation. A wild, and unspoiled, swath of mountainous territory, Tuckerman’s Ravine is the perfect combination of raw beauty, exhilarating views and pristine snow. Nestled on the shoulder of Mount Washington, this area is also home to our wonderful Inn.
