the descent is a more open treed run that is on a northern aspect. it is relatively short, and has very few technical terrain features. As you travel farther north and ski the more NW aspects, the terrain becomes steeper. Look out for stumps and deadfall[more]
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!
