Winter conditions are upon us in the Mt. Washington Valley [MWV]. Although there isn’t any snow in the valley, an occasional dusting here and there, the higher summits are snow covered! We went on a scouting trip to Huntington Ravine a few days ago to check conditions of the trails and ice. There is approximately 6 inches of snow on Tuckerman’s Ravine trail – up in to the Ravines. The ice is thin but some of the Gullies and routes, such as Odelles and Damnation are climbable. To date, they are more mixed climbs than ice routes but none the less climbable.
