    The mighty Tuckerman's Ravine

    by Bela_LUng Updated May 7, 2004

    Go to Mr. Washington, park you car and head up he trails to Tuckerman's Ravine. This has got to be the best skiing on the east coast. It may take up to 4 hours to climb up to the bowl, but once up there you will be rewarded with some great snow, year round, and some steep hills to ski.

    Be very cautious though as the hills are steep and the snow tends to be corn snow, a bit heavier then usual, and thus the risk is higher then at a usual hill. Theree is no grooming either - so what you see is what you get, rocks included. Be safe and you'll live to tell the tale of an awesome ski hill. Be dumb and you could be come one of many who lose their lifes every year.

    Tuck's is an awesome place to ski and if you are serious about skiing then do this pilgramage at least once in your life. But be safe and make sure to tell the story.

    WARNING: when you hike up the mountain, as soon as you see clouds forming on the peak, get the F down the moutain as soon as possible. Mt. Washington has some nasty weather and many have died due to ignoring those clouds. Don't be a statistics. You don't get that many chicks.

    Drive the Kancamagus Highway

    Drive along the Kanc.

    This is only off the Beaten Path because you have to drive down Route 16 thru Conway from North Conway or up Route 302 thru Bartlett to Bear Notch Road to get the the Kanc. If you're in North Conway, you HAVE to drive the Kanc and take in the BEAUTIFUL views!

    Black Mountain Ski Area

    by KaiM Updated Dec 22, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A jewel located in Jackson (Rt. 16B), about 10 minutes north of North Conway. Cheaper and better than Cranmore Ski Area directly in North Conway. 4 lifts and 40 trails. Half day adult tickets for $23 and full day tickets for $32. Some pretty tough, narrow and twisting black diamond trails. But also nice beginner terrain. I had a great time at Black Mountain. For more information check www.blackmt.com.
