Coming up this weekend and I'm bringing my wife. She loves to hike, but only an average skier. How difficult is the Sherburne trail? Should I consider having her bring her skis up?

The skiout from the ravine is via the little headwall and then down the Sherburne. The littleheadwall is narrow and has one steep pitch. The Sherburne is narrow winding trail with dips and several short pitches. At this time of the year it is well covered in moguls top to bottom. Its a leg burning excercise also with all the soft heavy spring snow and can get quite busy with all the traffic at days end. It would be classified as advanced skiing, especially at this time of the year. It should be open till at least 3/4 of the way down by my estimate.
You can check it out for yourself. See the following URL's to check photos taken on the little headwalll and the Sherburne...

Firstly, thanks a bunch for such a killer web-site - I was at Tuck's for the first time this weekend,and this site allowed me to be well prepared!
secondly, I would NOT recommend the Sherburne ski-out for anybody but above-average skier at this point. My girlfriend was a bit bummed this past weekend with all the bumps, rocks, and mud. i thought it was great fun.

Just skied it today. Had to hoof it twice - should have been 4 times. Made it 1000 feet from the parking lot. Took 40 minutes. I would not recommend it for an "average" skier. Bumps, and lots of them. It was a lot of fun though... SherpaKroto
