I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure this slide is Hillman's Highway, a back country ski route on the south side of Tuckerman Ravine. It descends from Boott Spur. It looks like a 6 lane highway now! Shots courtesy Wildcat Ski Area:

It looks like Hillmans to me too and sure looks like the recent rains did a number on it.

Does anybody have quality before photos of this area?

It almost seems like the slide skipped out of the normal Hillman's drainage into the next one farther down the mountain.

Someone else will have to pull that photo out. I don't have one other than to go back and look at a old Ravine camera image.

Taken 7/27/10-Hillman's Highway is the gully on the right, so, as you can see, it has changed dramatically...
