The Tuckerman Tradition

Tuckerman’s Ravine, a slope on New Hampshire’s Mt. Washington, boasts “No chairlift, no rope town, no nothin.” Despite the austerity, “Tuckerman” has played an important role in the history of U.S. skiing, which is why thousands still make a yearly pilgrimage to the hill. In addition to the throwback atmosphere, the ravine also has something not found on many East Coast mountains: avalanche danger. An interesting story throughout, put together by Zach Ornitz.
