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.
