Ski Free or Die! Mt. Washington Gets Dumped on Overnight

Next Up

There’s great news for the East Coast, Mt. Washington just received 18” of October pow overnight.

The Mt. Washington Observatory put out a video of one of their workers digging through snow drifts of up to 6 feet deep trying to uncover some buried instruments. We hope he already found what he was looking for, because no offense to him, we also hope it keeps dumping.

New England's tallest mountain and holder of the world’s 2nd highest recorded wind speeds (231 MPH!), is home to some classic East Coast skiing. Before there was heli-skiing, before there were even helicopters for that matter, Granite Staters were heading to Tuckerman Ravine with long wooden skis on their backs and leather ski boots on their feet. 80 years later, and it’s still one of the East Coast’s most popular backcountry skiing destinations. East Coast shredders should be getting their stoke on with this snow report and will hopefully be able to start snagging some early season turns if this winter weather holds up.
