Description

“Tuckerman Ravine is a glacial cirque sloping eastward on the southeast face of Mt. Washington, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Although it draws hikers throughout the year, and skiers throughout the winter, it is best known for the many “spring skiers” who ascend it on foot and ski down the steep slope from early April into July.” Wiki

October 9, 1934: “…eight new ski trails, which will be open for the first time this season. Tuckerman Ravine Ski Trail is the major opus and showpiece of CCC activities carried on under the direction of the Federal and State forestry services.”

“The new Tuckerman Ravine trail is a wide ribbon from the headwall to the floor of the ravine that takes out the grief of that section…It was begun as a public works project and finished as a CCC job.” [Leich]
