    Default places to ski besides Tucks

    What other areas are skiied. I know boot, tuckermans, great gulf but what other bowls are skied. Someone mentioned jefferson but what side? Just curious do they ski anything out to Randolph. What about the other trails down to the great gulf ( Spinx, six husband, buttress etc) The other area I am curious about is Madison. Is the Osgood to Webster skiable?? When the crowds gather at Tucks it is nice to have another place to go.

    Honestly, I don't know the Presidential "backcountry" that well, but I think somebody just came out with a guide book to the area and pretty much everything is getting skied. It's about time too, there is plenty of challening terrain above treeline. The biggest issue is access. There are not a lot of exit points. If you want to ski the steep lines above the Great Gulf you have to hike back up and ski out.

    Default Skiing Kings Ravine?

    Bill I noticed on the other Tuckermans site that a group went in to kings Ravine to check out the lines for a winter ski trip. Never thought I would see the day Kings Ravine would be skiied but I guess this winter if the cover is right it will be. The pictures that are posted from from this scouting trip are pretty neat. I don't think I would have the guts to ski kings. What do think is steeper kings or Great gulf?? Kings is easier I guess because you have the hike out or ski out to Randolph. I will have to look for that book you mentioned about the white mountain back country. Anyone know the title or author?? Bring on the snow!!

    This might be the book: "Backcountry Skiing Adventures: Classic Ski and Snowboard Tours in Maine and New Hampshire."

    I'm not sure so be sure to check it out in a store first.
