Backcountry Skiing in Tuckerman Ravine: A History

4,840 views 2 months ago
Skiers have been trekking into Tuckerman Ravine for more than a century. Plan your trip: http://goo.gl/h0dJcY.

Because this glacial cirque on the slopes of Mount Washington holds snow late into the spring and early summer, it has become one of the Northeast's iconic backcountry ski destinations. These photographs and film clips, from the Appalachian Mountain Club's Library & Archives, show skiers in Tuckerman Ravine in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, the decades when backcountry and downhill skiing began to boom.
