View Full Version : memorial day

Looking to head up to Tucks for my first time on memorial day weekend. Is this too late in the season to get some decent skiing in? With all the snow this year, I figure it should be around for a while.

Lots of snow this year, more than recent years. I've been there often in late May and have enjoyed some great skiing. You might be limited to skiing below the headwall... hard to say at this point. My guess is that it will be a very late season this year. Here are some photos taken mid to late May in recent years to give you some idea...

Compare this year April 7, 2001...
to last year on March 15, 2000... http://www.tuckerman.org/photos/99-00/3-15-2000.jpg
There is much more snow right now than there was two weeks early last year. So my guess is that May 28 (memorial day) will be close to conditions last year on May 6...
