The Bowl

Steep wide open bowl.  The bowl tops out in the 30 degrees so only ski this in times of pretty safe avalanche conditions.  If you go too far to the north there is a MONSTROUS cornice usually there so watch out for that.  You'll ski down to a bench which makes a great island of safety to watch your buddies from (pick your location wisely).  After that there are a few mellow tree shots that you can pick up further to the east that will add into the descent and take you right back to where the road first switchbacks.  Be careful though, even these tree chutes can have pretty high avy danger.

Details

Cold and snowy, but home to some of the best skiers and mountaineers in the world. The peaks are not very high, but then again you don't start very high either. Steep terrain, bushwacking, and technical skills are required. New Hampshire has the White Mountains, and has a great series of backcountry huts and hostels sponsored by the Appalachian Mountain Club, as well as other organizations. New Hampshire is home to Mt. Washington, as well as many other peaks over 4000'.

How to Get There

Go north from massachusets into the white mountains. The farther north you go in New Hampshire, the steeper and taller the peaks get!
