Hi Everyone,

Just a quick thanks to all involved for helping make my dream of filming a segment on Mt. Washington a reality. New England threw all she had at us and we managed to capture a wonderful story and the true essence and spirit of the White Mountains and the skiing there. For me it truly was "back where it all begins" and the Allman Brothers song by that same name has been in my head this week. It might be the perfect song for the segment.

I'm off to Everest...

The subject instantly grabbed

The subject instantly grabbed my attention! Then I realized it was not written by a local--correct name is Tuckerman Ravine. My son skied #3, The Chute, in May 2009. At the narrows his left toe binding failed and he cartwheeled to the base. His Stoekli skis remained as a memorial somewhere up hill. He quickly relocated his left shoulder, threw on his pack and hiked out to graduate from Norwich University 4 days later. He is back in Oregon now, but plans on returning to Tuckerman Ravine with his NU buddies.

Hi Chris,

Nice you were able to get back home. I have an idea you guys should have tagged along with Roger. He was headed for powder and found lots of it.

Everest? Well I guess you'll miss the 2011 Mount Washington Memorial Day BBQ and Slackfest...but they be grillin' at Base Camp so you won't go hungry :-)

Best of luck with the Goddess.

Errrr. Now I can't type. And can't edit my comment. Tried to say:

Sorry to nitpick, but it's Tuckerman Ravine, not Tuckerman's.

Hey Dav, Sorry to nitpick,

Hey Dav,

Sorry to nitpick, but it's Tuckerman Ravine, not Tuckerman. Some people in NH are gonna be wicked pissed if you get it wrong in next year's movie.


I believe that's at the

I believe that's at the ranger hut below the bowl at Hermit Lake. The view is sort of to the south, looking directly at Hillmans Highway. If the view was shifted just a bit to the right, you'd see the bowl.

Very glad to see Tucks make it to the film. It's about time!

Hi Chris,
It's Jimmer, from SnowriderS! This is so cool. I can't figure out where you were in the image here. Huts I see, but the background looks so different from any angle I've seen.
I've hiked up there 4 times, 1 time on JULY 10th and SKIED! Ok, On just a small patch under the headwall, BUT I SKIED in July! Nowhere else but Tuckermans! Can't wait to see the footage! What month was this?
CAREFUL on Everest!
