    Default Inferno 2008

    I have checked the Inferno information that I can find and can not see a schedule. Is the skiing Saturday or Sunday?

    My son and I are planning on going back to the bowl on Saturday morning. We have to be back to Maine for a big dinner party - at my house - so, I have to be there.

    Any others going to be out there?

    Saturday, April 19
    ...
    Annual Tuckerman Inferno Pentathlon. The eighth annual Tuckerman Inferno Pentathlon returns to Mount Washington Valley presented by the non-profit Friends of Tuckerman Ravine organization. The event begins with a run at 7 a.m. from Story Land over Glen Ledge to Attitash's Thorne Pond. It then continues with a kayak-canoe race down the Saco River to Humphrey's Ledge off the West Side Road in Bartlett. Participants then bicycle 18 miles back over Glen Ledge and then north on Route 16 to the Appalachian Mountain Club's Pinkham Notch Visitor Center, where they hike up the Tuckerman Trail to the floor of famed Tuckerman Ravine, Mount Washington's steep and demanding spring ski bowl. A skier/snowboarder is then tagged, who hikes to the top of one of Tuckerman's chosen routes for the final leg of the race. For more information about the event or how to become a member of the nonprofit organization, go to www.friendsoftuckerman.org or call Risch at 367-4417.

    I have some friends who are competing.

    If you see a blonde doing the hiking leg that might be her. Her name is Allison.

    Oh my goodness - what a day! Bright sun - loads of people on the trail - inner tubes coming down the headwall - sleds and riders being launched on the left by the big rock - ski racers on Left Gully going thru a course (of sorts for some) - cheers - clapping - hollering - a wild party day for thousands of people.

    Cars were parked a mile down the road in both directions. I will check out my pictures and get some uploaded this evening after our dinner party.

    It was a fantastic day - not that I am in shape for such stuff.

    Spyboy put together a couple of panos for me and they came out very well.

    Here is one from HoJo's


    And one of the whole ravine from the south side

    Excellent pictures!! Your action shots are GREAT!! The skiers in the race course, as well as those that were jumping out between the rocks.

    I can't believe that you couldn't even get into the parking lot at 6:45, and the trails look just as packed in your pictures as in mine, 3 hours later. Hermit Lake Shelter is just as busy. I am amazed.

    The skier in the pink wig (or whatever it was on his/her head) - in your pictures 107 and 108 - is the same person we saw climb out onto the ice/rocks later on. Just crazy.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures!
    Valerie
