Do your homework as well, knowledge = safety
Just remember the weather can easily blow in at 80mph. I don't move that fast unless I'm on I93 and behind the steering wheel.
Anyway, things change really fast up in the Ravine. a beautiful day can turn into a nightmare in a few minutes if you are paying attention and in a few seconds if you ain't. Good gear, good companions (meet 'em there or bring 'em) and good sense are you most reliable assests.
With the assets above one can have a great day skiing in the Ravine. The Tuckerman Ravine Volunteer Ski Patrol is a great source of information...but go easy on their time...they really have to watch the proceedings fairly closely. The caretaker at HoJo's or Jeff the previous caretaker can give you the real outlook. Jeff's tall and lanky and probably hobbling around counting the days, probably smiling too.
Don't forget to leave some scratch in the TRVSP donations box on the deck at HoJo's.
