Tuckerman Ravine Ski Route Survey

Tell us what your most favorite Tuckerman Ravine ski route of all time is. We'll post what the most popular choices are overall.

Gulf of Slides Ski Trail

The Friends of Tuckerman Ravine is the official trail adopter for the Gulf of Slides Trail so we welcome volunteers to join our trail crew for scheduled maintenance events. The Gulf of Slides area hosts several challenging ski runs and since it is in avalanche terrain, proper caution and avalanche safety skills are highly recommended for anyone entering this area.

Please help us preserve and protect this unique backcountry recreational resource by donating to our cause or by becoming a regular annual member of the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine. The funds we raise go back into trail maintenance and infrastructure projects on the eastern slopes of Mount Washington so that future generations can enjoy the thrill of a backcountry ski run on this awe-inspiring terrain!

Reminder that all FOTR trail work volunteers will need to fill out a Trail Volunteer Waiver Form before participating in trail work volunteer days. As part of our stewardship agreement with the USFS, trail volunteers will also be expected to read and sign a Job Hazard Analysis form as well.

In the off-season, you can help us maintain this trail by volunteering on one of our regularly scheduled Trail Crew work days. If you like skiing the backcountry, then you'll know that it's all up to volunteers to keep these runs and glades in optimal ski condition. Please give back and volunteer to be on a trail crew.

This is what the Gulf of Slides trail looks like without snow! Please consider volunteering on a trail crew to keep this run in optimum skiing and riding condition. If you can't come out to help in person, you can still donate to our trail fund which helps support our cause by enabling us to buy tools, supplies and refreshments for other volunteers.

Graham Trail

The Graham Trail provides linkage from the Sherburne ski trail to the Boot Spur Trail and the Gulf of Slides trail. It is not a well maintained trail and is a target for future FOTR trail maintenance efforts.

Footbridge at Pinkham Notch

The footbridge from the Diretissma parking lot to AMC leading to the trail system up to Tuckerman Ravine was another success story brought to you in part by the efforts of the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine and our many members, sponsors and donors.

Trail Crew Volunteers

Trail Volunteer sawingOngoing teams of volunteers are needed to help maintain our existing trail network. FOTR's focus is on maintenance and support of the John Sherburne ski trail and the Gulf of Slides ski trail. We'd love to have a limited number of qualified members sign up to become trail crew chiefs with an ability to maintain your own team of 6-12 trail crew volunteers that you can rally and motivate to participate on scheduled trail days. Trail crew chiefs should have skills in forest/woodlot management, be trained in proper use of tools like chain saws and pruning saws, and be experienced in trail construction techniques.

The work schedule for trail maintenance activities will be posted on the FOTR website and Facebook page on an annual basis. In the meantime, please help us by volunteering and/or making a thoughtful contribution. We are creating and maintaining a directory listing of trail crew volunteers who sign up to work trail crew projects so that you can coordinate with others and to see who else is helping out.

2015 Tuckerman Inferno Race Results

2015_Tuckerwoman_Tuckerman.jpg

We stepped things up a notch with the 2015 Tuckerman Inferno by offering a cash purse in addition to some excellent prizes from our Tuckerman and Tuckerwoman prize sponsors, namely Parlor Skis and RAMPsports respectively. 

Thanks to all the hard work of our volunteers, race timers, friends and family we pulled off another successful event. Despite some initial threatening weather and potential hazardous avalanche conditions above treeline, race day weather for the most part cooperated yet still posed significant challenges on the forever changeable Inferno race course. Low water levels on the river, strong winds working against bike riders on their way to Pinkham Notch, and dropping temps and precipitation in the afternoon, athletes proved their endurance throughout (hey, so did everyone else for that matter!). 

The overall Tuckerman title goes to Andrew Drummond and the new Tuckerwoman title was earned by Jessica Marion. Congratulations to them and all the other athletes that competed and were champions in the other race categories and team events. You can find a complete set of race results posted below.
