Avalanches in the White Mountains

Nearly 60″ of fresh snow over the last week has once again transformed our northeastern mountains. With 8″ of wind-driven snow having fallen this past Sunday night on the higher summits of the White Mountains, slab avalanches will remain a considerable risk on many steeper slopes in the coming days. If you are heading to the higher summits of the Whites, please proceed with caution and consider hiring a guide (see our Trips/Guiding page). As a good reference and source of current snow and weather info, check out the latest USFS Avalanche Bulletin for the Tuckerman and Huntington’s Ravine areas of New Hampshire’s White Mountains.
