Hi gang! Seems with our move to a faster server several months ago, posting of messages was not
working. Sorry bout that!
hi i rode tuckermans last yr with soft snowboard boots. i wouldn't have but as anyone knows, once you go up, there's no coming down. so anyways, i'm not gunna do it again w/o crampons so i was wondering if there was a place, maybe the lodge at the base, where i could rent crampons. thanks for your input.
hello, I am planning on going to tuckerman's on april 17th and it will be my first time going, I am and intermediate/expert rider, and my friend who I am going with says I can do it easily, so my question is, is it dangerous? will I get hurt just climbing up? I am curious...someone please respond!
I'm 13 and I've been wanting to get to Tucks for two years now. The problem is my mom doesn't really want me to go. She's afraid of avalanches and says its to dangurous. I've tried to tell her that the avalanches are low right now, but nothing seems to be working. Well anyway, I'll keep asking. I hope to see you all sometime soon.
I am planning to hike Tuckerman's Ravine in the Summer
or early Fall. No Skiing, just hiking. Looking for any comments
or suggestions to help make the trip fun and safe. Thanks.
I'd like to ski Tuck's one spring but I am having trouble finding information I can relate to. E.g.:
-when is the best time of year to ski it for corn snow? Here in Aspen the corn starts to grow in early May.
-typically, what are the "hours of operation." Backcountry corn in Colorado operates from 6am to 11am if you want to be safe.
-what's the vertical rise of a typical shot? -what's the average pitch? -to the top, is it a boot-kick stairway or can you skin? -are peips and shovels highly recommended?
An excellent site- I had it bookmarked for my son (snowboarder)
and checked it out now- July- because I am planning to hike it during the summer. I like your step-by-step method so that you know what to expect. A great job- I'll be looking for your summer update.
DOES ANYONE KNOW A GOOD PLACE FOR SINGLES DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS? INDOOR AND OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AND NIGHTLIFE. PRIVATE ACCOMODATIONS IE: COTTAGES ETC.......
`Don't bother lugging all that ski gear up to tucks when you can carry a swissbob, a 2 pound sledwith great cornering and control. I have been sledding the ravine for 6 years with my swissbob and don't know if I ever want to carry all that crap up again. I can hike to the floor of the ravine in less than 1 1/2 hours and sled back to the car in less than 15 mins.(snow conditions permitting). These sleds are great in mougls too and I have poached runs at several ski areas(sorry I can't tell you which ones). Pick up one of these sleds @ EMS, or SKI WORKS on rt. 16 in Ossipee, N.H., but please be responsiblewith your sled and respect both people and the mountain. E-mail me for a trip or a race.
I have some very good shots of the Ravine taken last May. I could scan them in if you are interested. Email to let me know.
So, what's it likeup there?? any avalanches yet?

Hi everybody! I've never been to Tuckerman's and I'm looking for current conditions, tips, info on the trail & climb, etc. How late might this year go? I'd like to take a less experienced skiier/climber with me and I'm wondering if there's some moderate stuff for him to do.
I'm organizing a trip to Tuckerman's for a group of students from Concordia University and was wondering if anybody had suggestions on when would be the best time to go and what to do, camp or rent motel rooms. Any suggestions for making this as good a time as possible would be greatly appreciated.
Any thoughts on the last weekend for skiing to base w/o doing to much walking?
Read an article in the North Conway Sun about a published book... Wanted to order one but misplaced the article... Does anyone know how I can obtain one??
Someone please tell me how to get there from Stowe, Vermont or I89.
