Tuckerman Ravine is indeed where much of backcountry skiing has its roots.
Which reminds me, indeed it is going to be “time for Tucks” pretty soon. My web development clients at Vintage Ski World sell a cool poster that shows all the Tuckerman backcountry skiing routes. Check it out.
Homebrew backcountry skiing department — David from Spain sent this:
“Try my home-brewed gatorade:
1 orange’s juice
2 tablespoons fructose
1/2 teaspoon cooking salt
Water up to 1 liter.
… I like it, and it works!”
